It was a rainy morning here in NC and after breakfast, free play, and a quick story and circle time we decided to drag out some crafts. We mixed up some colored glue and made a Christmas Bow Wreath and we made a Button Snowflake out of buttons, Popsicle sticks and glue. Both crafts came out really cute and the kids had a fun time completing them.
|Working together is always more fun!!|
I put in more than a few of Lil Bit's work because I want to show the progression (and absolute fun) she had...
|Getting used to the materials|
|Hmmm... I got this!|
|Using more than just a paint brush is a much better use of time, don't you think??|
|If you haven't noticed, the middle of the wreath, which is the table, is getting more paint than anything else :)|
|That brush is getting pretty slippery now. She goes to use the other brush several times, but puts it back and takes the slippery one again.|
|With the little ones, I needed to be one on one so they had to wait their turns. Lil Bit was a very patient girl, and I think because she waited she was ready and knew what to do when it was her turn.|
|For their little hands I used the great big buttons, and they didn't put to many on, this was much more manageable for them.|
