I have been wanting to blog about all of the crafts that I do and want to do with my little man. Crafts alone are fun but the little ones make it so much more interesting. I found two doable crafts for toddlers on Pinterest this past week and this morning my son and I were busy trying them out while recording it all. I chose to do these two crafts:
I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday to pick up the materials and it was very inexpensive, here’s what you need!
- Elmer’s stick glue ($1.99)
- Medium sized white poster board (5 for $2.99)
- Non toxic green washable kids paint ($3.27)
- Bowl for the paint to be finger dipped from
- Print out of a clover
- 4 Scrapbook pages design of your choice
First print out a large clover, I found mine doing a Google search, make sure it fills up the while paper. Then cut along the edges.
Apply tape on the edges so the paint won’t sneak in to where you don’t want it
Place it in the center of a medium sized poster board paper
Squirt the green paint in a bowl
Dip your finger in, or your child’s finger in-I had to show my little man how to do it and then he would copy what I was doing. This was after he stuck it in his mouth because he thought it was a condiment haha, good thing it’s non toxic!
And then however you want to paint or dot the outside of the printout, it’s okay to get paint on the printout because you will be pulling it off and discarding it
Once you’re done slowly peel off the printout, I suggest doing this after you wash all the pain off of your hands so you don’t get paint anywhere you don’t want it to be
Next Clover project!
Take the scrapbook pages you have and cut them evenly into columns and then take the strips and cut them into little squares, also take that printout that you used fr the previous craft and trace around it on another piece of poster board to get the above clover
I put all my little squares into my little man’s spider man bucket
Then you take one square put glue on the back and place it wherever you want on the clover, I would glue it and hand it to my little guy until….
He wanted it to do it all by himself…
Testing it out I let him and yup he was able to do it all by himself, such a big boy!
Once you have covered the whole clover you can be done with that but if you really want it to look sharp flip it over and cut the excess scrapbook paper squares off, and that’s it! You can frame either one to really make it snazzy or hang them on the fridge like I did. Good luck!
