fun gift from the museum
When my kids were little they didn't have tons of toys, but there were always simple crafts supplies, like paper, crayons, paste, scissors etc. Over a year ago, when I was in New York I found modern (plastic rather than metal) pot-holder weaving kits so similar to the ones I had as a kids and my kids got as gifts. So, of course I bought them for my granddaughters. The big girls really enjoy doing them, designing patterns and then weaving.
Here they're busy doing mosaics, pasting little squares onto small jugs.
No computer game gives the same total brain, body workout as these arts & crafts projects.
