Things to do!

So what are some cheap, fun crafts that you moms do with your kiddos?!? My youngest is 10 weeks so she is pretty demanding yet and with this cold, cold weather we are having here in Iowa outside is not an option yet but I am and now will continue to be looking for fun things/crafts to do!!

      Paper crafts with my daughter. There are some great videos on utube. I found a site that has a cute and easy to make paper hat made out of newspaper. By typing -origami twist utube paper hat - you should find it. The instructions are simple and easy to understand. There's also a paper water balloon that looks fun.

          Cotton ball animals.. paper chains.. home made play dough... all easy and all can last a while..

          Cotton ball people.. you can color them and cut out feet and eyeballs..

          Home made play dough is a favorite STILL around my home... they love it..

          Forts, make stationary, decorate a chair for the day, Make a book... (have her draw some pictures and you guys come up with the words.. or vice versa and she draws based on the story.. then stipple it and voila)

              I would imagjne so. I'm not a Pinterest person. All of the above I've just sort of done without direction.

              The play dough recipe is easy. Google homemade play dough. Or I can post it ;)

              Just remember w homemade play dough.. It IS food and you need to ziplock it over night and after a few days it will go moldy. So make a cup at a time. It literally takes 3 minutes.

              Lemme know if u need instructions.
