Kindergarten Crafts ages 4 -6

Yep these are the CUTEST Fall Crafts ever! The Handprint Turkey Hat brought out the giggles in my kids. Our six year olds painted toliet tubes one day and then decorated them the next with felt and feathers! The entire class got to dress up with our finger painted paperbag vests. This scarecrow was actually a recycle craft left over paints from our Native American puppets was left to dry on the paper plates and then the kids decorated it with paper scraps. Of course, handprint crafts and HANDS DOWN my favorite sentimental craft. These are still brought out each year to the ahhh's of amazment how small their hands really were.

Come to find out they probably didn't wear black and buckles its still a traditional imagine and I love their little faces. My 4year olds created this Toilet Tube & paper plate turkey that are displayed with pride each year.

Primary School Kids crafts

Elementary School Aged Kids CRAFTS ages 5-9

These crafts could be completed by younger children with more assistance however we found the most joy in crafting these kids projects with a group of kids ages 5 to 9. Our stuffed pumpkins decorate the bathroom - there is a surprise inside! The history bracelet is a wonderful reminder of the true story behind the Thanksgiving celebration. The kids really loved making their stained glass turkeys they hung around almost till Christmas. Our flowerpot scarecrow was a project completed with close adult supervision although not complicated it does have terra cotta pots that are no fun to clean up if dropped. The paper cup crows are easy and the 5 year olds created a field of them alone. Our newest project was a learning craft using watercolors and salt. Don't forget the sweet treats! Always fun to reward the hard work crafting by eating your creations! enjoy!!

Art, Learning & Play

Over the years, I have evolved and grown into my job as a mother, as my family has evolved and grown in size. With each child, my world changed, not only in mathematical terms but also in dynamics, imagination and creativity!

In addition to making sure each child gets some undivided mommy attention, playing dolls, reading books, cars, blocks, cooking and sewing etc...I allow them to explore their world and focus on creating kids crafts and art projects that cater to their current interests.

So this website grew from a place to store all our holiday kids crafts to one that shows off our home school learning crafts on the topics of the kid's choice.

The children in turn have become creative designers and are working on their own craft ideas, personal interest websites and business blogs. Yes, they are only in elementary school. However, in this house we focus on each child choosing a business to explore and create.

For FALL 2012

We are looking for Child Development Blogs that feature Play based learning! FREE LINKS SPACE PROVIDED HERE!

Share yours with us! Subject line should read: Play based Blog
