Some crafts and other things that DD has really liked lately. Do you have any to share?
(For the record, these were done over several weeks. It just looks like they all happened over a day or two because she picks out the same clothes all the time!)
Ripping practice to make an ocean. DD really liked this! She also cut up a birthday banner to make the shiny waves, and added a few sealife punches.
Q is for queen. DD had very specific ideas for how she wanted to make this collage. It was fun to watch how intense she was!
Bathing dolls in shaving cream and water. She spent 2 hours doing this, several days in a row! (You do have to disassemble the doll afterward so it can dry completely.)
New paintbrushes (in the orange container)!
Color mixing practice. We went out and examined how big a tree trunk is, then the branches get smaller. I provided her with 3 sizes of popsicle sticks. She didn't seem to absorb the "lesson," which is fine, but it does look very fall-like!
Probably DD's favorite. She thought it was hysterical that I traced her whole body. She LOVED painting herself in brown. I was going to do the leaves the second day, but she wanted to finish it all at once!
Marbles dipped in paint, then rolled down a paper-covered slide. (And then she got to clean off the slide, which she also thoroughly enjoyed.)
Painting the playhouse. I made a batch of homemade fingerpaint (this one was soap-based. It didn't have great coverage, but it washed off easily and didn't stain!) and let her have at it! Again, she got to clean off the house when she finished, which was half the fun.
I made a batch of plaster of Paris and stuck some toys in it. When it was dry, I popped it out of the container and let DD go to town with a hammer! Really fun!
