Crafting with Kids- some ideas from hippie
I thought I would post some things my 2yr old and I have been doing together...I'm always searching for more ideas. Keeping her busy is a task!
Here is what we've done:
We made her shoes into art: Fabric paint did the trick in a jif.
We picked up some rocks and made...
I did the painting, but she felt like she did since I let her hold the can afterwards and "pretend" spray.
She wanted to bring these rocks home:
So then we had to talk about the bugs and worms that needed those big rocks for a home:
We even saw some butterflies on our journey.
Or as M says "Butt-fys"
On for more painting madness. It's great to let them splash a canvas (reused) with acrylic. Easy to wash off, nontoxic, and good coverage on the board. I like.
The finished masterpiece.
I made some necklace pendants, and I let M decorate them with glitter. Yes, I had to clean them up a bit, but she had a blast.
Glitter is so--FUN.
