Share Your Battles Challenge Day 1: Art & Crafts!

When your kids are stuck in the house, it's hard to keep them entertained. Today's challenge is to do arts & crafts with materials you already have in your home!

Here are some projects you can do with your kids:

Sock puppets- Do you lose socks in the laundry and end up with lonely socks? Let your kids turn them into sock puppets. They can even put on a puppet show once they finish. All you need are socks, markers or felt, scissors, glue, and optional supplies you have to further decorate it!   


Animal masks- Let your child's imagination run wild and transform an ordinary paper plate into an exotic animal or their favorite pet! Then continue the fun by role playing with their new masks! All you need is a paper plate or piece of paper, paint or markers, glue or tape, scissors, and whatever else you have on hand to add the finishing touches.

Egg carton insects- Grab some markers or paint and let your kids decorate sections of an egg carton to create their favorite insects. All you need for this craft is egg cartons, paint or markers, glue, and other fun craft supplies you have to make these insects come to life.



Let's see pictures of your kids' arts & craft projects! Show us pictures of your kids working on their projects, as well as, the finished product! How often do your kids do art & craft projects? What's the biggest mess your kids have made while doing crafts?

My youngest loves to do crafts. I don't have any current pics but he loves drawing, making pom-pom animals with googly eyes, painting and playdoh creations.

My dd loves doing arts and crafts, but I don't have a lot of pics of her projects.  This is from last summer.

I don't have any pics!  I am usually right in there with her, making the mess!  We do crafts at least a few times a week.  The biggest mess was when she learned to use glue!
