Craft Time doesn't always have to be so much work for mommy! Bring out what you have on hand like: Paper, Markers, Colored Pencils, Tape, Scissors, Toilet paper rolls, pipe cleaners, and even candy wrappers. Just let them create! The trick to your child staying at the table longer is all in the surrounding! Fix some hot coco, put on some music, and, the most important key, Create with them! This doesn't mean help them with their project! Do something you enjoy like scrap booking, drawing, or even bring out a puzzle. My son and I had a relaxing hour this afternoon creating together. He is very proud to show off his creation on my Blog. He calls it "Volcano, Snow, & Candy Corn Land"
Let their Imaginations soar! =)
