We Play! crafting

We Play

My girls love to craft. Sticking, cutting, pasting etc etc. It is pretty messy though and because Harper still puts stuff in her mouth it tends to happen when she is asleep. Today there has been much asking "is Harper tired YET??" and now that she is the big 2 can get into it.

Set up

We use an egg carton to separate all the little bits and bobs

Serious business this creating

Some masterpieces drying

Now for me to clean up....

We're playing along with Childhood 101 We Play! Check out the other great play ideas HERE

I'm also sharing this over at The Nurture Store's Play Academy HERE. Lot's of great play ideas to be found there too!

My floor is covered in paint after two days of serious work *sigh*

Those are some great crafts, and egg cartobs are my new go to holders/sorters, too! :)

I just bought some lovely rainbow coloured patty pans which will definitely be making their way to the crat area (once I've used some of them for cupcakes!)

Sticking and pasting is also big in our house. I also love the egg carton craft bit sorter. I really needed some kind of sectioned container so thanks for sharing that.

Great tip with the egg boxes - we sometimes use muffin tins too. Need to share out the resources so there's no fighting over the glitter! I wondered if you might come and join with our Play Academy on Fridays - it would be great to swap ideas with you.

Crafting is such a great activity and I've yet to meet a child who does not enjoy craft in one form or another. :)

Clean up can be fun too, especially when it involves crafty items :D

We love crafting with patty pans too! Love the looks of concentration, priceless.
