It’s usually pretty easy to entertain my hyper four year old son during the mornings before preschool …

Painting with Preschooler

Being that I am and have always been a crafty sort of person, I have a huge supply of various paints, craft supplies and newspaper for times like today when the four year old requested that I paint with him.

Using Recycled Items for Crafts

I recycle my cardboard, paper and plastics. This comes in handy on days when the kids want to do any form of crafting. Seen in picture above, we were painting a cardboard box that was from our recycle bin and using the newspaper from recycle pile for protection of the dining room table. The paints are courtesy my daughter’s supply. Shhh don’t tell her.

Proud Preschooler

And when that project was all done, K-man moved onto construction paper making legs, as he called them. Taping construction paper into what is really a circle and stuffing them with crumpled up newspaper. Not quite sure what those will be used for, but he is happy so that’s all that counts!

What are some crafty ideas you have that my family can enjoy?

    We just paint paper, but you make a valid point that it’s easy to be creative if you just look around. :)
