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!!
I know I’ve said it several times before but your little ones (and your sanity) can only stand to do the same old projects so many times. There are days when my daughter asks to do art with me and I am totally and completely STUMPED as to what we should do.
When I am stumped I turn to my resource books from my childcare days but, those don’t always have projects that will be do-able in our time frame or fit what we are looking for. When that happens, I turn to the internet! You can find so many great ideas! It seems like your resources are unlimited!
I’ve spent hours searching for ‘the ideal project’! It is easy to do!!! The first couple of times you do your searching you may find you will do the same thing! Thanks okay!!! Take your time!! When you find a really good website/blog write it down or bookmark it! Making this list can save you time later!
I wasn’t smart enough to do this until I started staying home with my daughter. I really wish I would have thought of it sooner! It would have made those days where you just need a quick idea to spark your creativity MUCH easier! It may consume a lot of time at first but I can honestly say IT IS SO WORTH IT!!!
