Crafts for Kids

Doing crafts is one interesting way to spend time with children. As a homeschooling mother, the kids and I look forward to these activities where they get to experiment and work with paints, glue, scissors and different art materials.

Why, we even made our own Christmas decor last Christmas. We made paper stockings, personalized gift tags, and photos on the tree.

Below is one craft we made last year:

Disney Princesses Wind Chimes

When using paints, it is important to have the children wear something to protect their clothes, like a big old shirt or an apron.

Cover the work area with paper so that the paint will not flow on the table and make a mess.

Go get those art materials now and spend quality time with your children 🙂

Practical Gifts

Did you give practical gifts last Christmas?

You know, things that can be used by the recipient? Or would these just gather dust and be discarded after a year?

I think we did. One of the gifts we gave away to the teachers were handmade notepads which they can use just in case they needed to write down notes and thoughts. The notepads were not big and could easily fit in a small bag.

These were the papers we used for the notepads. For more info on how these notepads were made, click here.

For the person who loves arts and crafts, arts and crafts materials are the best to give. For the one who loves to cook, a cookbook or a kitchen gadget.

These were just some ideas and I’m sure there are so much more practical gift ideas out there.

Summer Vacation Plans for Your Children

Got summer plans already?

There is so much to do during summer and for sure, school children will not get bored with the many choices as to what they can do when school’s out:

  • travel and see how much fun it is in the Philippines (needs time to plan and budget for expenses)
  • cooking classes which also includes learning new skills like sanitation, cutting, sieving, food styling and nutrition facts
  • photography
  • styling classes
  • swimming, soccer, basketball, baseball, badminton classes for the sporty ones
  • piano, guitar, violin and voice lessons for the musically inclined
  • summer classes, whether advanced or for failed academic subjects
  • arts and crafts lessons for the crafty ones (this can be done at home because there are lots of tutorials to be found in the web)

There is so much to do during summer and there is no need for children to get bored. If budget is a problem, be creative and you can still have a lot of fun too!

Sending a Message

Arts and crafts are a big thing for me, as a mother and as a teacher. I have written articles about why it is important to teach these to children here and here.

One of the ways to show how creative the children are is by giving away handmade greeting cards during special occasions. Be these manually made or done using the computer, I am sure these will be appreciated well.

One of the ways to send greetings to loved ones during special occasions is by sending online greeting cards. Yes, these are economical and has a fast delivery.

The other day, I saw my six year old daughter Tania make a Valentine greeting card on the desktop and here is what she made:

Simple but it sure brings the message across 🙂
