I promise to no longer starve them of crafty goodness!!
Brilliant G'ma Berice will not be next door after the new year (we are finally
getting kicked out moving to our own place) to satisfy their craft desires - just me - and I am far from prepared.....so I am gonna do something about it!.....I made a list :)
Step 1 - subscribe to Kids Craft Weekly - check.
Step 2 - commit to sessions of creativity twice a week - check.
Step 3 - Start shoe box (gotta start small!) of useful, fun, cheap "craftable" tidbits - it wasn't cool getting all ready to make play dough and realising we had not food colouring! AND save 'useful' rubbish (egg cartons, toilet rolls etc)
Step 4 - acquire applicable tools - Glue, scissors, small pliers (jewellery making), butchers paper, paint etc...Its quite ridiculous how much stuff we don't have!!
Step 5 - Do not lament over useful items no longer in possession (ie sewing machine, huge box of scrap materials left behind in Tassie)
Last years Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns...my first and last moment of creativity!
A shout out to This Girl Loves To Talk - inspiring me with her numerous achievable kids craft activities...Thank you!!
