Arts and Crafts

Dear Parents,

My goal in the arts and crafts section, will be to give you fun, different activities to do with your child that will not require a lot of time, money or mess. These are not fancy projects that will end up on your mantelpiece for years to come. These are projects your child can be proud of and really feel that she made on her own. I (for the most part) will use materials that you have sitting around the house and usually throw away or basic preschool arts and crafts items. Here is a list of some things you might want to save and of basic pre-school arts and crafts items that I recommend for every home.

Basic Items

Colored construction paper
Plain white drawing paper
Small glues (buy a bigger one for a refill)
Child size scissor
(lefty scissors if your child is left handed)
Thick and thin magic markers
Paintbrushes (thick and thin)

Household items to Save

Inside of paper towel rolls
Inside of toilet paper rolls
Soda bottles
Coffee tins
Wrapping paper
(especially child-related ones)
Yogurt containers
Cereal boxes

If you have a baby you can also save: formula containers, diaper wipe containers

This does not mean you should save all of these, all the time. You do not need 50 toilet paper rolls. Just keep a few around to whip out when your child is bored and needs something to do.

Now that you are prepared - here we go!

Another special love of hers is cooking with young children. One of her most enjoyable projects was developing a program for cooking with pre-school children for three special education programs. Esther and her husband Myles have three boys aged eight, five and two-years-old.
