More Crafty Fun

Nathan's been asking to make a rainbow craft for the last week or two, so yesterday I came up with this idea.

All you need is construction paper for all the colors of the rainbow, glue and some cotton balls.

We ripped up the paper into scraps

Then, glued them onto another piece of paper in the shape of a rainbow.

We then added some cotton balls at the bottom to make clouds.

It can be a bit messy with the scraps of paper (Nathan wanted to throw them around like confetti when he was done with the rainbow). But it's a pretty easy craft and looks cute when it's done.

Today, I wasn't feeling very creative, so we took the easy way out. I decided to let him practice cutting and glueing. I got these cut outs from First-School. I printed them out and we both took turns with the cutting. He did the basic outline of it and I just "spruced" them up a bit. Then he colored the different decorations and glued them onto the snowmen. And we added some pipe cleaners for the arms just for fun.

Goodness me! You must have a lot of fun at your house. (I have 5 children, but my peak laundry years are behind me.) Don't you just love when you are able to get the kids "settled" down a bit to a craft.

I'm curious. Have you discovered the craft tower drawers (I don't know their official name) at Target? There are five drawers with lids which can be pulled out of the tower. It's made for craft supplies. I have four in my house. I love them. And it makes crafting more independent for my daughter who loves crafts.

Love your rainbow!! I'll have to try that with my girls this weekend. Following you back!

PS I'm a girly girl but a fish-a- holic too. In fact my husband and I own an on-line tackle shop!
