Sesame Street Kindness Rocks

Though the "Kindness Rock" craze slowed down quite a bit once school started up again last fall, we still find the occasional painted rock and my kids love it!

One of my favorite sets that I painted was the Sesame Street Rocks. I'm no expert artist, but it was fun to get creative with my kids instead of just watching them create.
What projects have you done lately?

Rainbow Mosaic

Lately, I've been re-doing a lot of the crafts I had done with my boys...but this time with my 3 year old daughter. It's fun to see how the crafts end up with the difference in personality and preferences. She loves rainbows and requested we make a rainbow craft, so we created our own rainbow mosaic.

LEGO Challenge: Spider

Sometimes when my boys are fighting, I send them to their room and give them a specific LEGO challenge. This helps them to refocus their attention, and gives them something to do other than fight. I enjoy it because it lets me see how creative they can get! One day, I gave them the challenge to make a spider. It had to: have 8 legs, be the size of my palm, and have eyes. This is what they came up with:

My 10 year old used literal legs on his spider, and I laughed out loud when I saw it. My 8 year old had several different kinds of legs and a body armor on top. What would your kids' spiders look like?

Mom Hack: cotton swab paintbrushes

Sometimes, the worst part of crafting with kids is the clean-up afterwards. This past summer, when we were painting rocks like crazy, I was so excited when I realized that cotton swabs work perfectly for little paintbrushes!

I cut them in half, and they're the perfect size for my 3 year old to hold. When we're all done painting, they go straight in the trash and I don't have to wash any paint brushes. Win!

Fall Craft: Q-Tip Fall Tree

My 3 year old loves craft time! The other day we painted fall trees with Q-tips, and she begged to paint more and more.

I love using Q-tips as paint brushes because they are super cheap, and when cut in half, they are the perfect size for little hands to hold.
