Welcome to a Craft a Day. Is this your first time joining us? This week is proof that I’m not supermom, life got in the way and we had to cut our lessons short. This happens sometimes, so don’t beat yourself up if you planned on joining us and didn’t get to. Just dive right back in and enjoy your kids!

If you are new to A Craft a Day

A Craft a Day gives you five activities that you can enjoy with your kids, one for each day of the week.  Most of these activities work well for preschoolers, but you may be able to adapt them for your toddler. If you want to learn more about the basics of A Craft A Day you can find them at a Craft a Day: Coming Back Soon. I will post the crafts on Saturdays so you can use the weekend to get any supplies that you may need. We are making our way through the alphabet this year so if you missed a you can find it here.

Are you Supermom?

Now I’m not supermom and I don’t expect you to be either. We don’t always get to each activity, sometimes life is just too busy. Hopefully you may try one or two of these activities with me and my kids! You don’t have to do every single one. You don’t have to be doing preschool with your child. I just hope to give you a resource for some great fun with your kids!

The Crafts:

  • Coloring Toast – Both of my boys loved this project. Be careful they don’t jab the toast with the brush, good way to teach them to be gentle. We actually made grilled cheese with our bread.

  • Paper Color Wheels – This is also a great project to start helping your preschooler with scissor skills (and it won’t have to be perfectly accurate.

Supplies: bread, milk, food color, ice tray (optional), tissue paper, spray bottle, cardstock, shallow bowl, rice, food color,rubbing alcohol, sandwich bags, kid safe scissors, old newspapers, paper plate, glue

Hi I'm Pepper. My family and I are sharing pieces of our lives.
We hope to inspire you by showing that even small changes can make the biggest differences in your life. You don't have to go to extremes to become healthy. Just do it one habit, one meal, one walk, and one hug at a time.

Let's work together one piece at a time making better habits, eating healthier, getting moving, and most of all loving our families.
