Wordful Wednesday: Crafting the Days Away

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Marlie is home with me for the next two weeks (say a little prayer for me, please). I know that I have to keep her constantly busy or she will drive me insane. So I scoured blogs for ideas, organized some projects on Pinterest, went shopping for supplies, and got my homeschooling on this week. Here's a sampling of what we did:
We painted hot rocks. Thanks for the tip Homeschool Mo!
I put gloves on her in case she "forgot" not to touch the hot rocks.
We went over the names of the colors as she painted with the crayons.

We made a pipe cleaner sun. She loved painting the foam ball.
She learned that the sun is yellow and it is a star.

We made homemade play dough. This kept her busy for an hour!
She made pies, burgers, eggs, and worms (pictured).
This is a great project for developing motor skills.

Looks like a fun week! Thanks for the mention! Why does she have two weeks off? Are you changing schools after all?

I understand about keeping them busy! As much as I would love to throw my daughter in front of the TV sometimes, I know that's not the best thing to do for either of us.

Arts and Crafts projects are so much fun for kids and allows them to use creativity and trial and error to create exactly what they imagine.

Great stuff Mama! I wish I could be more crafty but my kids are a little older now and they just make stuff up on their own and make a mess while their at it!
