My kids have cabin fever. Actually, I do too. So I set off on a virtual hunt for an idea on what we could craft now that my craft stuff has finally made it out of it’s boxes. (YAY!)
I found these great egg carton caterpillars, and having no shortage of empty egg cartons in our possession, I thought this would be a great activity.
It required quite a bit of help from me, but they loved it. Then I started chopping an egg carton apart and let Monkey have at it with paint. Some pipe cleaner stems and we got some adorable roses to add a touch of spring to the playroom.
Having not had enough messy play, Monkey wanted to make pictures while Little Man had his nap. I also have a large collection of mulberry scraps for scrapbooking (because I do so much scrapbooking nowadays – note the dripping sarcasm).
I think I’m framing them for the playroom.
I really channeled my inner Picasso – except with paper and glue.
What messy fun have you been having with your kids?
I’m currently hunting for more ideas along the lines of the egg cartons. I have a few to pull out for next week… and Monkey wants roses for her bedroom too.
