We had a short, but fun morning together today. Here are the crafts we made and more we didn’t have time for but look great all the same.
- Sponge painting pumpkins – We used a mesh (Pouf) bath sponge to mix red and yellow paint and made our pumpkin orange. I then just let him freely paint on two papers as much as he liked.
- Shaving cream and glue ghost – I saw this idea last year and did it again this year. My boys love playing in shaving cream and as my 3 yr old said today, “Shaving cream is awesome!” I mixed shaving cream and Elmer’s glue and had him paint however and wherever on some black construction paper.
- Shape monster – I saw this idea here at House of Baby Piranha and thought they looked so fun. This was great cutting practice for R2. I asked him to pick out the colors for his monster. Then I went through each face section and asked him what color and what shape did he want. Then if it was a straight line I had him cut along the lines.
