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!!
Your school aged kiddos aren’t the only ones who can get into that Back to School mode! Your little ones can too! You can turn your art time at home into a learning experience for them!
Simple things like cutting a letter out of construction paper and letting them decorate it can be fun. If you are in the mood to make a mess (Okay, let me rephrase that…if your little one will enjoy making a mess) you can let them draw in pudding [or shaving cream] on the kitchen table!
It is simple to turn your ‘art time’ into a structured learning experience that your little one will love. Although this tends to work better with kids that are 3-4 years old it can be done with the younger ones as well.
With the younger ones things like decorating the construction paper letters may be the best route to take if you want them to have the structured learning time. If you opt for the messy option they will be more likely to just have fun and make the mess (which okay too!!!) Either way your little one is learning and that is the key!!!
