I am a mom of 4 kids(11,10,8 and 6)who taught preschool for 2 years.
I hope you can use this blog as a resource to find fun activities to do with your children. Some ideas are new, while others have been around a while. This is a place where I can store all our activities without having to actually have to store them in my attic. I hope you find some fun and easy ideas.
Today was glitter day. Since I have a problem with mess, when we do a messy craft, I like to get it all done at once. The first project is using old Christmas cards. I did this craft with my mom when I was a little girl. Take old Christmas cards and cut out pictures you like off of them. Now a days, alot of Christmas cards have families and kids on them, this would be a good way to make ornament with your kids friends and family members on them. You put Elmer's glue around the border and sprinkle on glitter. Add a hook and some ribbon if you like.
This second project has "BLING". Trace patterns using cookie cutters on foam pieces or card stock. Smear glue all over. I let the kids smear it with a Q-Tips. Then Sprinkle on glitter. Add a hook and a bow if you like. These are a lot prettier in person, my photography does not do them justice.
I did the glittering on paper plates. They are easy to fold to reuse the glitter. If you are wondering why I always have pictures of my kids, it is to show my kids actually do the projects. I know you thought I just liked to take pictures of my kids. Well that too !!
