I have the hardest time finding crafts and activities to do with my son. All the crafty things are geared towards girls in pretty pink boxes. I recently searched for different things to do that would appeal to all three of my kids. I was surprised by the vast ideas out there, here are two easy and inexpensive ideas.
1. Fossil Clay Recipe
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 & 1/2 cups water
create your clay and form it into the shape you’d like, then press in whatever you’d like to make a fossil of. Plastic bugs or animals are a great choice.
2. Classify Clean UP
create a graph of all the legos, gives them a great excuse to clean up the room!
Classify Legos by their size, for example 2 pointers
Classify Legos by their different colors
Classify Legos by their shapes
Put each different kind in a shoe box or ziploc baggy. The same thing can be done with your childs animals. Sort by the different groups.
