Crafting with Kids: Enhancing Learning

Meet Stephanie! She’s a 24 year old stay at home Mom, who couldn’t ask for a better blessing than to be home with her daughter!! Their favorite things to do together is working on art projects and they enjoy sharing them with people at Crafting with Bug!! In her free time she enjoys reading and scrapbooking!!

After much consideration I have decided that I will be doing a homeschool preschool with my daughter this year. I can’t see paying for something that I am certified to teach! While I was searching for FREE worksheets and such I could print for her I was trying to think of different ways to enhance what she was learning with the worksheet without getting her board or overwhelmed.

Then it hit me! ART PROJECTS!!! DUH!!! There are so many ways that doing an art project can enhance what your little one is learning. Whether you are doing homeschool stuff or trying to give your child a boost with what they are learning in school.

For the worksheets I chose I figured that I could do simple art things like cutting out a large letter ‘A’ out of construction paper and then going through old magazines and gluing things that start with ‘A’ on it. In the end you will end up with the whole alphabet in collages. If you choose to make the letters smaller you could have your little one make an ‘alphabet book’ for them to look back at later!

Other fun things could be drawing the letter/number in shaving cream {or pudding} on the table, or taking a simple walk and taking pictures of things that start with a certain letter or a specific number of items!

The ideas you could do are limitless. Be creative and have fun with it!!! Nothing is better than getting your little one excited to learn new things!
