Hello all. So sorry for the delayed posting. The power cord for my laptop broke just as I was about to upload some crafting pictures. Finally the new power cord as arrived and I am back in business.
Here are a couple of crafts that you can do on the fly with household items. These are my favourite kind because they require little to no prep time. M loves making these sorts of crafts too because they are easy and have great results. They also make great gifts for grandparents :)
1. The Paper Plate Fish
Here's a neat little extra. Cut out a little circle from construction paper and do the same to make a smaller fish. Now take some string and a hole puncher and hang your little fish from your big fish's mouth. M and I did this and it looked cute. M thought it was a mama and a baby fish, but I think it looks like the big fish is eating the little fish. Share your fishes here!
2. Egg Carton Bugs
M loves egg carton crafts. Here is a great one that is easy and fun to play with after. Take an egg carton and cut off some bumps. For a caterpillar I used three, but you can use more. A ladybug and a spider would only be one. Paint the bug in the colour you'd like. Add pipe cleaners for antenna and legs. M and I added pom-pom and glitter glue (that girl loves sparkles). Last we added some googly eyes (which were later pulled off to play with).
I hope to keep updating more crafts for you all to try. I'd love to see pictures of your crafts and I'd love more ideas that M and I can try.
