I am sooo lucky! I have kids who LOVE to craft. (What would I do if they didn't?? LOL) Soleil asks regularly if I have a craft for her. Sometimes, Mama is a little tired, so I have started to plan crafts ahead for her. They are lifesavers when I need a moment to do something, and of course, I don't want her watching TV.
This craft was easy... I drew a rainbow on dark paper with white crayon, gave her tissue and a little bowl of glue. She knew exactly what to do with it!! She has made several creations using the scrunch-up-the-tissuepaper-and-glue method.
pony beads and pipe cleaners, the second has play mais, and the last one is decorative scissors and all different types of paper and a small container of playdoh. (I make long snakes for her to cut into little pieces).
