Crafting with Kids 2

Hi friends! Sorry, I'm ignoring the blog so much lately. I'm just overwhelmed with the holidays coming and some other stuff. I have so many projects but I haven't had time to sit and blog them yet.

Ok, here's the project we did last Friday when I was watching my friend's little girl. It's awesome because she's 5 and gets really excited about crafting which makes Brady really excited. We wait until Parker takes a nap to craft since he just wants to eat all the paper. :)

Last week's project was hand wreaths. The base is a paper plate I cut a circle in. I had the kids color the plates green to keep them occupied while I was cutting out hands, etc.... I traced the kids' hands a bunch of time. (D. asked me later why I didn't just make a template. Opps!) Then I helped them cut out their hand prints. Sophia is actually able to cut her own! That was awesome! Then I helped them use glue dots to decorate their wreaths. I just let them pick out the embellishment, place a glue dot on the back, and then they can stick it on there like a sticker. After we were done, I just punched a couple holes in the plates and tied ribbons on them.

We had a lot of fun! I love crafting with the kids especially when there's an older child who's really into it!

Have a great Thursday everyone!
