I was torn this week, did I want to do eggs or elephants. I decided to go with eggs because there were so many great egg crafts but no elephant crafts. If you know any good elephant crafts please send them my way for the next time we do E.
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!
- Chickie Eggs – These were cute and almost too easy. Zane loved putting them together I don’t know how his ended up with a frowny face but it was pretty funny. (Make sure and keep the shells for the other projects.)
- Earth Mosaics – This was a great project for bible day. The boys colored pictures in the morning and we talked about how God made the heavens and the earth. Then in the afternoon we made our earth project. This is definitely a keepsake project.
- More Mosaics – You can do this project in addition to the Earth Mosaic project or if you don’t have or want to deal with clay you do this project instead.
- Egg Geodes – We tried this science experiment but for us it failed. If you have any luck getting the crystals to grow please let me know!!
- Egg Planters – We had some extra grass seed in our garage and I hope the grass will grow in time for the letter G! Or maybe I hope to keep the grass alive for the letter G.
Supplies: eggs, carrots, black sesame seeds or food markers or sprinkles, clay, egg shells, food color, vinegar, Elmer’s Glue, alum, paint brush, glass or plastic container, hot water, grass seed, potting soil, paint
If you do any of these crafts and happen to take a picture or write a blog post about it please make sure and share your link in the comments. Also don’t forget to link the original crafter! I may feature you and your blog on the following weeks post!
