Back in November, while in the throes of nesting, I went through a crafty stage.
You may recall that I am not at all crafty. In fact, I very rarely dabble in anything of the crafty sort. But I stumbled on some simple (very simple!) project ideas, and I decided to make a few things to help keep my younger kids occupied after the baby was born.
Said baby is now 7 weeks old, and we just got the box o' activities out last week. But hey, I was saving them for a "rainy day."
All of these ideas came from THIS POST by Michele at Frugal Granola. So I suppose it's not entirely accurate to say I "stumbled upon" the ideas, since I read her beautiful blog religiously. Still, it was a happy surprise to find something I could and wanted to do.
My kids love these activities! Even my big boys think they're very cool, and love to help the little ones do their projects. I'm very pleased to have a box o' fun to pull out, especially during school time.
Maybe there's something to this Crafts Thing, after all...
