We’ve been dealing with a mild stomach bug (so far!) for the past two days which means two days at home. Yesterday, I decided to try a simple craft, suncatchers, from Mary Ann F. Kohl’s First Art: Art Experiences for Toddlers and Twos.
These suncatchers only needed clear contact paper and tissue paper. However, it took a little time for me to set up the contact paper for each of the three children, something that I didn’t anticipate. Fortunately I already had a box of torn tissue paper ready.
My five year old had the most fun with the craft. Taking ten minutes to set up the craft would have helped my three year old to spend more time on his creation. He ended up just putting a big piece of tissue paper on the contact paper. My two year old daughter was never interested in the craft, preferring to bop her brothers with her roll of contact paper.
Since we’re home again, I think we’ll tackle the play clay from the same book. 32 oz. yogurt containers are a great place to keep this homemade clay.
