Another repost...This is a post I put together for Honest to Nod, some summer crafting ideas...
Summer is here...which means no school there will be many little hands looking for things to do.
Sit back and watch how your child thinks about what they want to do and then tries to figure out how to make it happen. Step in to help with cutting or gluing or holding something in place for them. And soon enough you will have some fun little handmade friends for them to play with!
Fairy friend craft supply list...
fabric scraps (cut into a rectangle for clothes)
hot glue (to glue on cap and clothes)
acorn caps (to use as hats)
acrylic paint (for faces)
felt (for wings)
This little project can be done with the help of little kiddos by letting them pick out their favorite colors, etc. Of course older kids can do this project on their own, or you can make them as a special surprise to take along on a road trip or to give as a gift.
There you have it...with a little bit of imagination you've busied eager hands, had some fun and made new friends!!
PS. This is a fun project to do with lots of little hands all at the same time. It's so interesting to see how each child comes up with different ideas!
