So, what’s the big idea with this new blog? Well, the other day I was searching for some craft ideas for a St. Patrick’s Day playdate we had planned. I came across a blog that totally inspired me; it was an art teacher who posted all kinds of fun things she did with both her students and her own children. Little Crafter and I love doing arts and crafts, so I figured it might be worth sharing some of our ideas in a format where other people could benefit from our experiences. Please feel free to borrow any and all ideas shared here; if we enjoyed it, we want you to enjoy it too! If you have any questions about materials or instructions or anything else about how we did something, just ask!
For our first entry, I figured I’d share what we did today to celebrate St. Patty’s Day. LC’s friend O-man came over to play [along with his mommy and his three month old brother K] and they made two super cool crafts.
We got this idea from Parenting magazine’s website. Great for ages 2 and up!
Materials: multicolored pipecleaners, small flowerpot, black acrylic paint and brushes, shredded paper or easter grass, and gold wrapped candy [I really wanted the cute little coins but couldn’t find them anywhere!]
LC: “Tell Baby Jesus.”
Mama: “Right. He told the Irish people about Baby Jesus. Good job, buddy.”
