getting crafty!

One of the best parts of being home with my kids is being able to sit down and do crafts with Kinsy. We have been working on her shapes, numbers and colors and I decided to make it more fun by doing projects. And what a better time to start than Halloween! It is so much fun watching her putting colors together and thinking about what should go where. At the same time the perfectionist in me is having to sit back and not correct her when she wants to put the nose above the eyes, or cover a whole project in foam hearts. I have to let her express herself in her way. And I hope that I can keep these little crafts for many years and get teary eyed when I remember how much fun we had making them! We have one more Halloween one I want to make, a spider made out of a toilet paper roll and her hand prints on construction paper. After Halloween we may do some stuff with leaves and get ready for our Thanksgiving decorations! Then winter and christmas here we come! This age is so much fun! Going to leave you with a few pictures of our projects!
