So my mom and I are babysitting my two nieces tonight, actually they’re sleeping over. So of course we needed to find some kind of craft to keep them busy, it’s not always easy entertaining a 3 and 4-year old. So we found this really cute craft that’s made for elementary kids, so it has to be easy enough for them to do, with our help of course. I know we’re sick and tired of the rain, but why not make rain sticks? It’s a fun craft for the girls to do and although it might give my mom and I a headache, it’ll entertain us all. All we’ll need is some construction paper, some rice for the inside noises and a few other materials. It doesn’t seem like it’d be too messy either. Another really cute craft that I just adore are the smashed soda can animals. I came across these the other day and I just fell in love with them.
They’re a bit more complicated to put together than the rain sticks will be, but we might have to give it a shot. I mean really, how adorable are these animals? I almost just want to make a collection of them. Would you make these with your grand-kids?
