Handmade Notepad Materials

It has been almost a month ago since I blogged about the handmade notepad I made.

When I was too excited to make these, I used small tools to make the notepads. Good thing we have these because from time to time, or when inspiration strikes, I do some crafts. The following were the things I used to make these:

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 πŸ™‚

Elmer’s Glue All

Elmer’s Glue All Multi-Purpose Glue is what we use with the homeschooling children.

We use this glue for our crafts, for gluing photos, for additional enrichment activities. This also works best with other projects requiring the use of glue.

As with other products, it is best to practice good precautions regarding safety. Click here to read about Elmer’s Glue All MSDS or Material Safety Data Sheet.
