Do you sit down and do arts and crafts with your kid(s)?

If no, why not?!

If yes, what kind of things do you do together?!  I'm looking for new ideas!

We would make home made play dough, necklaces and if its a holiday then we would make homemade tree ornaments, etc.... I loved doing crafts w/my kids.

 Arts and crafts aren't big in our house, never have been.

 When my oldest was little we did a craft everyday. We would mostly do paper things, like make snowflakes or book marks. Now I only do crafts with the kids sometimes-cause its nearly impossible to do anything with my youngest son around.

My son is almost 4 and could care less about doing that with me. He'll do it at school but if I tried to do it with him here he'd be interested for about 5 minutes then run off and get into something else.

We do. Everything frome painting/fingerpainting, playdough, and coloring, to more organized, specific crafts. We love the website http://www.dltk-kids.com/  and often do crafts from there- they have all sorts of everyday crafts, and holiday crafts, etc...

DS is too young, but when he's old enough I sure will

We try to do a letter of the week and do crafts about that letter.  We have done collages, cut and paste Noah's Ark, necklaces, paper dolls, painting, coloring, gluing leaves and other flowers on paper, paper plate pumpkins, etc.  We have been slacking off some this summer though because we spend so much time playing outside.

 They do a lot of crafts and every now and then I join in. Painting is their favorite, there doing it now!  I just did a my own storybook with my DD where she had to make up, draw etc a story and then you send it in to have it published.  It was a lot of fun.
