Crafting with Kids: Vacation

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!!

Summer vacation can be a stressful time not only for you but for your little ones too! Yes, everyone has a great time but if you are stressed your little one can tell!

A great way to keep up a ‘normal’ routine while away on vacation is to keep your art time! I know I hear you! You are thinking ‘I don’t want to have to pack any more then I already am!’ I understand this completely! But just hear me out.

You don’t need to pack everything you own for art time just a few things! All you need is a small backpack with construction paper, some crayons/markers, glue, and some paints. At your destination you will be able to find other things your little one can use to enhance his/her art projects!

If you are heading out to the beach your little one can make sand art, if you are heading out to a cabin in the woods let your little one use what he/she finds in nature as a paint brush! The picture above is of my little one using a stick to paint with on our last family vacation!

Keep your art project packing to the minimum but in the end it will be a life saver!!!
