Oh those rainy days…
Kids going bonkers, and your last nerve is hanging right on your sleeve
for anyone to grab.
There are fun craft ideas all over your home, and you can settle those
kids down in the blink of an eye! All of you can enjoy a fun craft time
while the storm blows over and maybe even on any other day!
Creating crafts with your children doesn’t have to be elaborate or cost
a pretty penny. You have items hidden here and there all over your home.
For example, don’t throw those empty toilet paper or paper towel tubes
away. They can be made into binoculars, telescopes or microphones. Keep
the empty Jell-o boxes and grab a few pop sickle sticks to make maracas
with macaroni noodles. There’s also the old faithful colored
construction paper! There’s many an idea for hours of fun there!
Go to a local discount store and purchase an inexpensive "rainy
day" container with a lid. You can keep this stored in a closet for a
rainy day or any old day you and the kiddos want to be creative. Fill the
container with the empty paper towel and toilet paper holders, scrap
wrapping paper of all colors, crayons, chalk, markers, glue sticks,
colorful yarn, beads, small boxes, pop sickle sticks, finger paints and
brushes and sponges… the list in endless!
After hours of fun, display the artwork
proudly! Then do it all over again!
