With Venice seemingly giving up on naps altogether, I've had to find quick and easy crafts to keep those busy hands busy.
Luckily, Martha has a great kids craft section on her website!
I tend to be a little on the controlling side when it comes to doing crafts with Venice, but this one went Ok, maybe I'm realizing that having fun is more important than them looking perfect.
Freshly painted egg carton cups.
A tidy bundle of vintage yarn from the Sally Ann.
Staples of crafting (and life).
I did the glue and she glittered.
I don't have a picture of the finished project, but I threaded the yard through the tops of the egg cups and tied bells inside.
Venice hung the jingle bells in our laundry room so she'd hear when Daddy comes home from work.
On a completely different note, I had made some cotton rags from an old tea towel and wanted to make ringlets in her hair just like I used to when I was little girl.
Clearly you need really long hair and lots of it.
Venice had a huge blonde 'fro! This picture was before I picked through it!
Needless to say, she went to school with pigtails.
