Part 2 – Easy Crafts for the Creatively Challenged Mom

I am rather “creatively challenged” so the stuff we do needs to be EASY! I struggle to think of good ideas though I love to be creative.

A challenge for me is to engage the little ones in doing a craft but not do too much of it myself!

After we learned about the Amazon Rainforest, I am embarrased to admit I resorted to an easy old favourite –  colouring pages from the internet!

We printed colouring pictures of rainforest animals and the little ones coloured theirs and we cut them out.

We also cut coloured leaves from  red, green and yellow paper and stuck them on a large piece of paper to create the dense rainforest. Then we stuck the animals in and around the leaves…

Then they drew around the edges of the rainforest adding the finishing touches.

Great delight!

Although it was an easy craft it was great because even our 1 and 2 year olds could take part!
