5 Store-Bought Crafts Worth Buying
2. Suncatchers. I cannot tell you how many suncatchers my daughter has painted in the past 6 months. She never seems to grow tired of these. You can actually buy them at Walmart for less than $1 apiece and they sell the paint for them too since they take a special kind of paint. Or you can buy this kit that comes with everything.
If you are interested in craft ideas that you don't have to buy, you might be interested in my book! I teamed up with Susan Case who is a former Kindergarten teacher and a passionate advocate for learning through play. We give you dozens of other ideas on how to keep your kids busy, but in a productive way, so they are actually learning while they are also having fun! Here is what one of my readers wrote on Amazon after she read our book:
This book seriously saved my sanity. I've read a bunch of parenting books but this is literally the only one that actually gave me real and specific advice and ideas for things to do with my daughter. I'm a stay-at-home mom to a 2-year old and I was at my wits end trying to come up with ideas of fun, easy, creative things to do with her that will keep her busy and occupied and help her learn. I wasn't very good at following through on ideas that I heard about from friends or read in other books or online because they seemed too complicated (aka: messy!) but this book broke it down and made it so simple. I highly recommend it!
