We are very lucky to have fantastic neighbors to come over and do crafts that might be a little hard for a toddler to manage. This is a great activity for Preschoolers and School age kids!
- Gather your materials. You will need some rocks, paint, paintbrushes, pipe cleaners, sequins, glue, paper , googley eyes , sparkles and a hot glue gun.
- Paint your rock and let dry before gluing anything on.
- Add some sequins .
- Bend your pipe cleaners into antennae.
- Hot glue it onto the rock, please don’t let even older children do this, I burnt my finger today and man did it hurt!
- Hot glue the eyes on.
- Add some sparkles!
- Add the finishing touches, we made wings out of paper hearts!
Books!Today’s books are all by Sandra Boynton, her books are fun, short and perfect for toddlers and young preschoolers. Also as you can see they are an easy read for an older child to read to a younger one.
” Horns To Toes And In Between” is a cute and novel body part book, pointing out all our favorite body parts, the best being our belly buttons of course.” Moo , Baa , La La La ! “Another brilliant and cheeky little book for your toddler to love. My son has already figured out that it’s funny to say that a dog says ” Bock Bock” knowing full well a dog barks! This book is in that same spirit !
What a cute idea! My son loves picking up rocks and now we actually have something to do with them.
I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and have been meaning to tell you how much I enjoy it. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
Just wanted to say that I love you site! I just found it and am so glad I did! Thanks for all the great work 🙂
I too am a new fan of your site! I have given it to all of my friends with kids and they love it! I am a third grade teacher and know how important it is for parents to start teaching their child at an early age. I appreciate the work and effort it takes you to blog about these neat ideas for kids. Thank you! Keep it up and we will all keep reading.
Great idea for groups of kids!
I wanted to let you know that I love your site and recommend it to people all the time. How old is your son that he is able to start these crafts? And WE LOVE moo baa la la la and Doggies… You have original editions BTW.
Really? I was gifted them by a great neighbor and friend – mommy to the older girl reading to my son.
