Another cold Friday, another fun craft activity for the 4yo!
The theme for the Family Fun linky from Denise over at Mum on a Mission for a Better Life this week is pink. I hadn’t managed to do much during the week – it was one of those weeks! – but, we needed to go to the craft store on Friday to get presentation board for the 7yo’s latest homework project. While we were there we found lots of fun spring crafts, and both the 4yo and the wee girl were very taken with a butterfly and owl kit and it was largely pink! Bonus :)
Once the wee girl went down for her nap (so that the 4yo could create undisturbed!) I set everything out for him. Following the pictures by way of instructions he set about making one of the creatures. In his usual precise way he wanted them to look like the pictures! I helped him a little (very little!) with the first one and then left him to it…
So, for our $8 we got 2 hours of entertainment; involving all three children working together, helping each other, creating and using their imaginations; three very happy kids; and quite a collection of creatures :)
