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!!
If your little one is as excited to do art projects as my little one is you may find that they are ‘antsy’ or seem to be in the way while you are trying to do the steps that are too hard for them. That can lead to frustration, not only for you, but also for your little one. They are ready to do the project but you aren’t ready for them or you need them to wait a couple of minutes.
First thing is first: The best time to do art with your child is during their ‘prime’ time during the day. At that point in the day your child will be more likely to stay focused on the project and they will be in a much better mood.
That being said, the best time to do your prep work for the upcoming art project (things like cutting things out, gathering supplies…ect…) is their nap time the day before or if they take two naps the first nap of the day is a good time to do your prep followed by the project sometime before the second nap.
To spare the frustration why not take a few minutes out of the to-do list while your child is sleeping and get the art project ready.
