Family Fun: Arts and Crafts

Take a break from television for some creative family crafting. Spread newspaper or cardboard over the kitchen table and, voilĂ , you've got a craft room! Pick a project and assemble a kit for everyone. Ideas include:

Or let each person bring his or her own hobby to the table. You can admire each others' talents and progress, or teach and learn new skills. Just think how much confidence your child will gain from teaching Mom and Dad or his or her siblings how to do something!

I had all boys and they weren't all that interested in crafts.  Even when we'd do things specifically for boys.  Go figure!!  LOL  We did do tye dyed shirts and they enjoyed that one!  :)

That is great! When is the last time you all made a craft together?

I took a paper plate and had her look for healthy foods.  She got to cut them out of my magazines and glued them to the plate.  She had fun looking for fruits and veggies, she knew those were healthy.  She's 4, so at first she tried to convince me cupcakes were healthy.  She likes to make cards for her grandpa, he has a massive stroke so she sends him things to cheer him up.
