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!!
Stick to Something Your Little One Already Knows….
Sometimes you just need to switch things up and other times ‘old reliable’ is a great thing!!! Allowing your little one to do art projects they are familiar with gives them a high confidence boost! After the first couple of times of doing it you can lay everything out for them and they can do it by THEMSELVES!!!
Not needing to rely on you for direction makes them feel free and in control. Yes, doing the same thing over and over again can and will get boring BUT, if you change the project ever so slightly it can and will feel like a new project to them.
For example: If you let your little one color on coloring sheets or in coloring books change what they get to use to color with or let them add stickers. Those little things bring a whole new excitement to what was and still is an easy project! Plus, your little one already knows how to do the project so they can be left to make their masterpiece.
This new found ‘freedom’ for your little one also gives you time to get a thing or two done without your little one(s) being underfoot .
