Making slime is a super fun sensory activity for kids, even older kids and parents can enjoy playing with the big hunk of goo that comes out of mixing a couple of simple ingredients together.
Do you have a child that loves art and enjoys working with different art mediums? What if they had the ability to not only draw something but to actually draw it three-dimensionally? To create a drawing that they can see and touch from all sides. They might think that’s pretty awesome, right?! Well then, 3D art pens would be a great art medium for them to try!
Simple crafts are my friend. Complex crafts that take too long are not my friend. I get very impatient with crafts (or recipes for that matter) that have five million steps. Or even 12 steps. I like to keep it quick and simple, while keeping the fun factor in tact.
Do you have any favorite Christmas books that you read to your children?
There are so many wonderful children’s Christmas books and I cherish these years of sitting together with my children, reading about Christ’s birth and reflecting on the miracle of Jesus.
A couple of years ago I discovered the book Song of the Stars by Sally-Lloyd Jones and it has become one of our absolute favorites. If you are looking for a books that stirs your soul and makes the wonder and awe of Christmas anew then this book is for you.
One of our first projects this school year was an All About Me book that our children absolutely loved creating. While working on the project, two of the kids exclaimed “this is so much fun!” I admit, it’s such a joy when the children are excited about the things we are working on. 🙂
