We go through phases. Sometimes we play more games or do dramatic play, but lately we've been doing lots more craft projects. And guess who's starting to fully participate? Roman, that's who. It's the cutest thing to see him blossom from a delightful little baby into a delightful little boy, and a crafty little guy at that. He really loved filling a seltzer bottle with "bits" (he repeated that word the entire time) and glitter. It was just as fun for Felix as well. And Felix liked using the finished product as a "calm down bottle". Sometimes we can use a little help when it comes to mellowing out. ;-)
If you have little ones who are new to crafting (R is 19 months old), I highly recommend giving this project a try.
Plastic bottle (the smaller the better)
Various items to go inside -- we used cut up pieces of foam sheets, goggly eyes, plastic spider rings, sequins, cut up pipe cleaners, cut up straws.
Have a great day!
