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!!
Art and sensory project are way more than something to occupy your little ones time. They do so many things for the development of your little one (way too many to list!). If these things aren’t something that happen on a somewhat regular basis it is never too late to start!
We use this as ‘Mommy and Me time’ a few times a month! I would love to do it a few times a week but it seems as though our schedule doesn’t allow. “We are way too busy to make this a regular thing in our house”….is that what you’re thinking? WRONG!
Take a step back and look…I’m fairly positive that your little one has playtime where they are playing by themselves at some point while you do something else. Right? GREAT! That’s where you start! Take one of those playtime sessions and turn it into art/sensory time!
“But, I use that play time to catch up on other things that need to get done since I was working or busy with other things”…..I hear you! Believe me I do! But listen up! You can still be involved in your little ones art time without actually being right next to them.
If they are doing their art project at the kitchen table and you are within eye sight and ear shot you can talk to them about what they are doing. This shows them you are interested and excited about what they are doing and helps them to be more interested in it as well!!
When can you make time for art/sensory time in your house??
