Hey anyone got some good idea of crafts I can do with my little girl, other than painting and drawing. I know about macaroni necklaces and binoculars from toilet rolls, anything else you can think of? I have googled it but don't come up with much. Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough.

Feel free to share your ideas! :)

eggcarton Caterpillas
Rockets / out of plastic bottles
Finger pumpets
a colour book - take lots of scraps of material stick them together ( staple stick or sow) by grouping together similar colours and put them together like a book.
Potato stamps 0 cut into shapes.
you can go for a walk collecting leaves and stuff and come back and stick them on something ( paper, canvas, box) .

we also make out own potty charts

good luck

Hi :)
I am a crafty mommy and last weekend my kids tried some Easter decoration ideas. My daughter is 5 and she tried all of them. Using old egg cartons and fancy feathers for egg decoration, smiley’s with silly expressions made using eggs, and a cute Easter bunny craft her favorite. I got the idea from this amazing blog post, try it. I am sure your kids will love helping you out with Easter decorations, so this will be creative project for them. Here is the link

Homemade playdou, 1 cup flour,1 cup salt, 1/2 water, n some food coloring, Easy! You can bake the creations to save them but be warned if they get wet they will go mushy again, SO get some sealer like clear acrilic spray paint. Christmas n Valentines day cards Easy! You can make fake "staind glass" using wax paper and crayon shavings and heat the crayons in the oven on 300 for like 5 mins, You can make picture frames by sealing the "glass" between the wax paper and giving them as presents. Milk carton/Gallon flower pots, Cut them down to the size you want and then paint n glue stuff on to make them pretty and show them how to plant a flower in there or a favorite veggie, Carrots, Lettuce,Strawberries are easiest! You can make an inside herb garden that way! Hope this helps! *Coffee grounds and egg shells are cheap plant food.

Craft and potty training!!! I've hanged a poster in the bathroom and every time my little one achieves her goal (@#$@!!) we stick a sticker!!! Once the poster is full we will give it as present to our daddy :-)

I let Grace smear glue onto construction paper and then we stick on macaroni to make pictures. They don't look like anything, but it's fun.

We also planted some seeds and she waters the plants every day now. We planted coriander, but I also have a small container garden outside that she waters from the rain barrel. If she gets her hands on my trowel she immediately starts digging a hole.

my son loves any thing that involves stickers or the glue stick! Just recently we turned half an egg carton into a caterpillar which he coloured, then glued little pom-poms onto. We also made pine-cone bird feeders. I have a box in the house that I throw random things into (jars, cartons etc) and he likes to pick out the item and the craft "medium" be it paint or such and then he goes to town! Just have fun, and don't try to control what they are doing.

I don't know how much space you have but little ones love gardening. It's a bit messy, but they love the dirt, the pretty flowers and that they are helping momma. And you can have a beautiful flower or some nice herbs to enjoy! It's fun from seeds, but she may get impatient because you can't see anything for a while. You can keep her involved by leting her do the watering with a cup or little watering can.
