Craft Time

About a week and a half ago, we decided to stay home in our jammies and do lots of art!  Baby Jack was snoozing on a blanket on the floor and it was really nice to have time with just my girl!
 I had been planning this activity for probably three months, and we finally did it!  We read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and then did some tissue paper art!  I found some clip art of fish and printed them out so that Katie could use a glue stick and torn up tissue paper to decorate them.  She loved it!  We will definitely be doing tissue paper art again soon!
 Next, we got out a stamp and paper kit and she had a blast putting stamps and stickers on papers.  She decided she wanted to make a bunch and send them to the grandparents, so when she was ready, she put them in cards and helped sign her name!  Then she cleaned up and wanted to do some painting.  I bought actual watercolor paper a while back (thank goodness).  When she paints, she always has a really wet brush, which tears regular printer paper up.  The watercolor paper is thick enough that it absorbs it and does great! And since it is kind of expensive, I cut the sheets into quarters to make it last longer.
Towards the end, Baby Jack woke up and was happy as could be!  I bet he will love doing art too (just maybe not with princess stamps and stickers)!
