Boo has always enjoyed getting crafty and creative, and Little Man at 15 months, is also starting to show an interest (stickers fascinate him!). So we regularly have craft sessions here, though not always that well-prepared or structured!
This is the go-to box, the activity when no real activity is planned…
We have pipe cleaners, stars, pom poms, googly eyes (a requirement!), and various foam and shiny shapes. It’s gathered from bits and pieces both my mum and I spot in sales while we’re out and about, so we get it and add it to the box. We always have stacks of paper, crayons, glitter, glue and so on, so it’s a case of letting imaginations wonder. Sometimes we have a craft in mind, such as making a card, sometimes we theme it around what we’ve been up to or something seasonal, and at other times it’s just a grab, stick and create exercise!
Boo loves it, it keeps her occupied for ages, and I can see Little Man will soon be sat at that table creating with her. It’s lovely to see what their imaginations can come up with, and such a simple activity that keeps them very happy.
