I am a hard-core crafter and as such, my kids are constantly getting into my stuff! To keep them out of my most beloved items, I like to have ideas on hand that they can do with only a minimum of supervision (and coloring sheets ain’t gonna do it when there are punches, ink and a die-cut machine “just over there” in Mommy’s craft room).
To mentally bookmark ideas for reference, I subscribe to sites that update regularly with original, crafty ideas. (I subscribe directly through Feedblitz so that they come to Inbox. If I have to go looking each day, I can guarantee the day will run away from me before I know it!) Here are some “ol’ reliables”:
- Let’s Explore – Creative Activities for Preschoolers
- Superheroes and Princesses
- Frugal Family Fun Blog
- Chasing Cheerios
- whatever: crafts and art
I got my kids to make Halloween favours for their classes based on this idea here…aren’t they fun? I know if I was a kid, I would be giddy to get one of these!
