Need some craft ideas for an almost 5 year old.

Looking for some fun ideas to keep her busy...we paint, color, puzzles, beads and stickers. I'm getting bored of it so I'm sure she is too. Any ideas of something quick and fun that we can do?

How about something like macaroni art? Like, gluing different types of pasta onto cardboard or heavy paper to make pictures. You can paint it after it's dry, so it's like 2 crafts in one.
There's also play-doh (or clay, if you want something more permanent) You can make useful things, like cups, along with general fun things.
If you're willing to spend a little money, you could get something like a light-brite. I LOVED mine when I was little.
Fun stuff doesn't just have to be crafts. Why not try baking with her? Cookies are always fun (and yummy) but there's also bread, muffins, any assortment of stuff. Pretzels can be SUPER fun, you can do so much with them :P
You can make decorations for around the house, like wind chimes or stained glass. You can make door stoppers by painting rocks.
Try a new spin on something you already do. Find something other than paper to paint on, that sort of thing :)
