It’s 103° in Texas. The pool is like a hot tub. What can you do different inside with kids? Here are some craft ideas that you could try this weekend:
I found this puppet kit at Walmart for about $12. You could make your own with lunch bags, scrapbook paper, glue sticks, markers & cotton balls.
Photos and instructions from the Brassy Apple.
Plum Pudding has some great ideas on what to do with your spin art. Check out her other crafts too! So cute.
Recycled Mini Books
I love this project by art teacher Kathy Barbro. It’s great to do with preschoolers, plus it teaches them to recycle.
• Cut a few pieces (about 4-6) of tissue paper about 8 x 10 inches (the exact size doesn’t matter).
• Put the paper in a pile and fold it like an accordion fan then round the edges with sissors.
• Tie the center of the folded paper with a green pipe cleaner (or twist tie).
• Gently pull each piece of paper towards the top center of the flower, separating each sheet of paper from the others (forming the petals of the flower).
