Crafty Kids

My kids love to make crafts. Lots of crafts. They make crafts that go along with what we are studying at the moment. They make crafts from craft books. They make crafts from everything. And there are crafts everywhere sometimes. Here are some of the most recent creations that were just creations for the fun of it. The ones that they’ve made to go along with our unit studies will have to wait until we finish the unit and can show off everything. I purchased a package or two of wikkistix at the last homeschool convention that I attended. I don’t know how they have stayed unused for so long. A few days ago, I had a lot of work to get done on my computer and I wanted my kids to be doing something constructive (rather than destructive, you know) so I pulled out the packages and said show me what you can make. This is what they made.


Note: Oops, I’ve just been informed that what I thought was a tulip plant and some corn stocks is supposed to be a house and a barn and I put them upside down for this picture.

I like to make sure that there are fun things around here for my four-year-old to do. He asked me if I would be okay with finger paints. I was a little hesitant, because well the mess that they can make, but then I thought that I couldn’t deny him the fun of finger paints just because I don’t like cleaning up, so I got them. When he got them out to start painting with them, he wasn’t the only one who wanted to finger paint, so did the “big” kids. Here are some of his creations.

    I should get the paints out this week. I’m hesitant about cleaning a mess up as well, but it is always worth it because they have so much fun!
