Now that I’m focusing more of my “free-time” on summer fun, I’ve been enjoying messy mornings with Kestan.  I found a stash of scrap felt and thought that finger puppets would be a fun project.
Kestan enjoyed it, but I have to say, his favorite part was dumping out all of the buttons.

*Embroidery thread and needles
*Variety of buttons
(Glue, scissors, pipe cleaners, yarn or any other fun materials you can find around the house
Let your kids have fun making a mess with you.  My little guy has trouble handling scissors but he got involved in other ways – like telling me what animals he wanted me to make, picking out the colors, helping with the glue and of course…playing with the final product!
Your Personal Reflection:  How do you nurture your children’s creativity, as well as your own?
