Elijah’s first Craft Day at the House

18Sep10

So now that we have a quasi-toddler, I wanted to implement a weekly “Craft Day” at our house.  (The motivation probably stems from the fact that I’ve been over-tired the first 18 weeks of this pregnancy, laying on the couch while my little man plays with his trucks.)  There’s nothing like guilt that will motivate a mother :).

We had our first craft on Thursday~ water colors!

It was really fun and not that messy.  Apart from Elijah eating the paint and at times sucking the brush dry after dunking it in the water cup, it went really well.  Don’t worry Grandma, it was non-toxic paint :).

One reason I wanted to post this blog was to gain insight from any mothers/teachers/crafty gurus for Elijah’s and my next craft.  If you have any ideas for a craft suitable for a 2-year-old, please leave a comment or link me to another site.  Thanks!

    U could let him paint his own cross or something i let Maddie do that and she put her own decoration and it was hers! She loved it

    http://www.notimeforflashcards.com is good but more hands on/teacher-ish.

    i also follow belladia.typepad.com/crafty_crow/
    she doesn’t necessarily post a lot of crafts good for 2yr olds but always links her resources which has been a good way for me to find blogs

    April/ Jerod,

    I love your website and think your child is adorable. We should connect sometime, after all we live in the same city 1,200 miles away from home (Miami).

    I hope you are well and look forward to hearing from you soon.
