Crafting with Kids: Take It Slow


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!!

Lately, since it has been nice out I have been having a VERY hard time getting my daughter to sit down and do the art projects. Why? She wants to be out running and playing…NOT sitting and doing art with me (even though she has specifically asked to do these projects). After many frustrating project being completed (partially by me) I started breaking our projects into steps. (Why didn’t I think of this sooner?)

We start the project one day and then once my daughter starts getting antsy we take a break and resume either later that day or the next day. Sure, it does take twice as long for the projects to be completed BUT, they are completed with excitement instead of frustration!

The lack of frustration makes those projects that much more enjoyable!
