What kind of crafts do you do or have you done with your LO's?
Mark loves to help with everything, so I'm looking for some thoughts on crafts I can do at his age. He's 19 months, a little shorty but can easily climb that step stool. Would cookies still be too young? When I pull out my scrap stuff, I've set him up with some markers too and those foam stickers and he loves that. Messy, but fun. Also at daycare, they've done the handprint crafts, last year made this adorable handprint turned into snowmen ornament.
Here's the link for instructions. Full of Great Ideas: Five fingers snowman ornament I got the link from a lady on our Paper Scrap board here on JM last year, and passed it on to daycare. Kim is planning on making those again with the kids this year too. It makes such an adorable ornament to treasure year after year.
So what tips, projects, etc. do you want to share?
I can't post the link- but someone in my PR posted about a felt Christmas tree. I never did look up the real instructions, but made one anyway. I just took a big piece of black felt and pinned it to the wall, then cut out a Christmas tree out of sparkly green felt, and then got a bunch of different colors and cut out ornaments. CJ has a blast putting the ornaments on and off the tree. And since felt sticks to felt, no adhesive is needed and it doesn't get all messed up when he pushes them around on the floor.
great projects! TBH I hate doing crafts with all the kids together, they're just so little and fighty and get frustrated so quickly-they're not all at the same level developmentally with coloring and gluing and cutting-its just easier to do them with Nolan once the other three are in bed. Sad, but I'm hoping each year will get easier and funner.
Nolan and I just painted a wooden picture frame for his dad's office, very cute!
