More crafts!!! I've been putting Gavin up in his high chair with something to do while I prepare dinner if it's something I don't necessarily want him helping out with. Thursday, I was making homemade pizza dough and it's a messy process as it is...didn't want him contributing to that mess! So, up in the chair he went and I went to the closet to find something for him to do.
I'm not totally sure where this idea came from. I had just added an empty tissue box to our closet of crafts, and this popped into my head. I added a bunch of different textural items to the tissue box. Then, I cut out the middle of a small paper plate. Together, we added a lot of glue to the paper plate and Gavin got to work!
He got to put his hand into the box and pick out different items. Then, he positioned them where he wanted them to go on the paper plate.
Craft time with Gavin is usually very quick. He doesn't spend a lot of time coloring, painting, etc. But, he loved this and it took a lot of time. I got a good 25-30 minutes of prep time in the kitchen while he glued. It dried overnight, and then we added a picture to it and Daddy got to take it to work! So cute!
