14 days already since Silvio and Lily took flight toward Nice. They return to us this Saturday. I cannot wait to see Lily’s big eyes and radiant smile as she tells the story of the journey from her perspective. What must it be like for such a little one to have this sort of experience?
This is a good time for playful crafts, but I could not choose, so here is a little something for everyone.
First, acknowledge spring with Winged Wonders from Disney’s Family Fun Website. You will appreciate the simplicity of this craft, which requires an old magazine and a few pipe cleaners.
In preparation for Mothers’ Day, Busy Bee Kids Crafts suggests a very attractive Hand Print Bouquet card. Again, simplicity at the service of artistic expression. You will need construction paper, glue or tape, scissors and a pencil.
Ever heard of Cereal Box Postcards? Who would have thought! Surely this could accompany Lily’s Flat Stanley on his next adventure. I found this idea on a site called Infarrantly Creative.
This fun new way of recycling cereal boxes could provide opportunities to develop spelling and communication games too. Or how about this? Make several postcards. Place them in a box (decorated by the children also). Time for a bit of praise for a tidy bedroom or completed homework? Write a note on a card and slide it in the lunch or school back.
