Everyone here at Kids in Cowtown is busy enjoying their holidays and chasing after their kids. If you are also frantically trying to think of an activity to keep your kids amused, check out one of our favorite posts from this last year!
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 ideahere…aren’t they fun? I know if I was a kid, I would be giddy to get one of these!
