This week get crafty with the kids, you may be surprised at what they produce. Grab a few supplies around the house first, maybe a couple of old picture frames or some items from the recycling bin. Look around the house for different pens, crayons, markers and paints, you may find some from an old paint project in the garage, who knows. Make it a game and enjoy the hunt for things that can be used or reused in your creation. Kids love to construct random art with household goodies, so let them and take time to appreciate their thought process and excitement. Sewing supplies are always a great addition with old buttons, bobbins, fabric scraps and trim your children can make button jewelry, weaved fabric place mat and maybe even a few Christmas presents. Who know what will come of the creative time, but either way, have a wonderful time with the kids as you play and create the day away.
