I often worry if I am doing enough arts and crafts with my toddler. I know its important, but things get so busy sometimes life happens and BAM another day with no arts and crafts.
Today it was teaming of rain. And I MEAN teaming! Although I was tempted to have an hour outdoors splashing and splishing in the HUGE puddles forming on the drive, I simply didn't want the hassle today of sludge everywhere. So instead of sludge I opted for GLITTER ( - and LOTS of it!!)
Invitation for play looked like this:
So many pretty sparkly items to choose from to decorate the stars! I was a tad JEALOUS actually as I wanted to sit at the table and create myself!! Just like a magpie - attracted to anything shiny!!
Anyway, Little N spent over an hour doing this. What a BONUS! She was well away! Spreading the glue, putting her hands through the sequins and sticking them down. Sprinkling the glitter was her favourite and the glitter went EVERYWHERE!
Infact after the craft session she pushed her table out the way and danced around in the glitter on the floor pretending to be Elsa from Frozen!! So amusing!!
Once they had dried, using sellotape we attached craft sticks and made fairy wands!
Its a great Toddler craft. Whether they love - Ben and Holly, Witches, Wizards, Wallykazam or just simply enjoy creating - its fun, simple and can be used in their play once they've dried!!
