Spring continues to be rather cool and rainy in New England. We try and go out as much as we can, but some days are just too cold and wet! I have been tucking away potential craft projects and this weekend we pulled out a few ideas. We turned a egg carton into caterpillars! I am sure I have seen this idea a thousand times in all sorts of places so I can’t take credit for the idea – I also can’t really really attribute to anyone else!
Amelia has been painting more and more in her class at day care so I figured she might be ready to try some painting at home side by side with her big brother. The plastic top of an old coffee can worked great for holding a variety of paint globs between the two kids.
After they dried, we added some pipe cleaner antennae, googly eyes and drew on some smiles with a marker.
While they were painting I read a classic picture book that was great for Amelia and an early reader that was more factual and great for Connor.
Amelia was a big fan and was so cute to watch her play with the finished product. Apparently she can make “bug noises” that sounds a lot like munching leaves!
