If you have a local craft store like Michael's, they may have craft classes some times. Our local Michael's has free craft classes and at the registers they have take home calendars for the classes so you know what days have what classes. I don't have any craft ideas off the top of my head because my daughter is only 7 months. Maybe you could google some ideas at www.google.com.

E., I also homeschool and we do some great stuff!
You can Either Buy 2 disposable cameras and let them make their own scrapbooks for the summer which will probably take the whole summer! with the little one you would just take the pictures and let her stick her hands and feetin paints and stuff and memories of her hands and feet with pictures would be great, also you can take walks and find different kinds of leaves and do a experiment or project.
If you have a digital camera it will be so much easier!!!
you can take many pictures of different things, I love the wildlife and enjoy doing this with mine.
If you need so more information please let me know i can also tell you that you can get 26 small ziplock baggies and do a ABC's Book for your 1 year old. Nice book for little ones being that it will probably get wet anyways LOL

Did you know that Tupperware does Fundraisers and gives the organization 40% of the sales? That's just by simply having the parents purchase tupperware out of the fundraising catalog. Tupperware can supply some small gifts like key chains, and whistle straws. You can also go to L&M Party stores to get bags of small gifts that are inexpensive. They have a store in port charlotte, and Sarasota but I don't know where else. Hope that helps. Good Luck. If you want to do a Tupperware fundraiser I can hook you up with someone where you live, unless you live in my area then I can help. D. S

The best crafts you can do with kids are edible ones. Get in the kitchen. Bake up some cookies or cupcakes and let them decorate them. There are lots of kid-inspired recipes on the web. I saw one for miniature meatloaf in the shaped pans or cupcake tins, then decorated with mashed potatoes and cheese, peas and cut up cooked carrots. It's fun and if they're picky, they'll probably eat what they made.
Buy a roll of kraft paper and some paints or markers or chalks and let them be creative. You can make t-shirts or aprons (before the cooking thing) or even a little purse.
There are wooden boxes, small little ornate ones. Like a jewelry box at the craft stores that are only like a dollar or two that can be painted and decorated. You can make picture frames. Tons of ideas, just make it fun and don't be rigid or a "perfectionist" with how it turns out.

I don't know what abilities your children have, but my daughter and I just loved to make finger puppets! I'd cut colorful felt pieces into ears, lips noses, etc. and she could glue them together; everything was quite inexpensive at craft, material, and hobby shops. We used sequins, colored feathers and googl-ey eyes and anything else we thought would work. You can probably get a book of patterns at any craft store, the library, or probably the internet, but it won't be long until you're making your own. We used craft glue sometimes or just sewed pieces together. We also made little "gifts" for the kids in her class at Easter, Christmas, etc. Every now and then, I still run across little finger puppets when cleaning and it really reminds me of how much fun we had!

We also made paper mache (did I spell that correctly?) stuff; a family of pumpkins at Halloween, penguins, bowls, little animals, etc. We did decorations for her book fair at school, and all sorts of things. Books of all kinds are available to get you started.

We also did the "scribble game;" I'd have the kids make any type of random "stuff" on a piece of paper (including fingerprints, which make great bodies for bug drawings!) and I'd make SOMETHING out of it!

I also took my kids for walks outside for "nature studies" where we identified species of all sorts!

Hope this helps!

Hi E.! I have a 2 and a 4 year old (girls). They love gluing and painting and we try to get them involved in crafts several times a week. I just did a great craft with my Kindermusik students that your girls might enjoy together. The great part about this craft is that it doesn't take precision and it's using non-toxic ingredients. Save a toilet paper roll or paper towel roll. Punch a couple of holes in one end and tie a string or dental floss through the holes for hanging. Use Elmers or any other non-toxic white glue and coat the tube thoroughly using fingers or letting the girls paint it on with old paint brushes or tooth brushes. Qtips are always fun as well. This will occupy some of their time to be silly and creative with the glue like paint. Then have them roll the glue covered tube in bird seed and hang it to dry. When dry, they can put it outside for the birds to enjoy. You can also let them do a similiar project by smearing peanut butter on a paper tube or simply a carboard square. I'm sure that you could come up with your own variations of this type craft as well. It's also a tool that you can use to teach a lesson about birds or animals as well! You can't make too many of these either. They can hang multiples of them in a nearby tree and enjoy watching the birds and animals slowly eat them and you're showing them how to recycle with things around the house.

I hope this helps. I save every craft idea that I can find for my girls and my craft classes. This one seemed to be one of their favorites since it's also involving animals and sharing.

We just did this craft this past week at Vacatiom Bible School and it captivated everyone from 4-11. Lots of kids decided to give them as gifts to their Dads for Father's Day as paper weights or other gifts.

You will need: small shells, wet sand, plaster paris, a paper plate, brush, and a small foil bread tin. We went to the beach to get the sand and searched for shells.

Put the wet sand inside the tin and outline the entire tin about 1/2 thick. Next place the shells upside down along the bottom and sides (the closer the better). Then mix up the plaster in a disposable container. Fill the tin with plaster all of the way up to the top. Once it turns cool turn it over and remove most of the wet sand. Let dry over night and then remove the remaining dry sand with brush. We called our "under sea treasures" because of the shell and the sand that that had stuck to the plaster. You may choose other small objects like marbles, golf tees, etc in stead of the shells for another theme. Let their imaginations go wild.

I love to use NickJr.com for craft and games ideas. They let you download the instructions and recipes they offer. They also have color pages you can print. I got a folder for my daughter and we have filled it with NickJr stuff. We look through the folder for ideas or get on their website for new ideas. Have fun!

The various Dollar Trees/Dollar stores as well as the $1 section at Target are great places to find prizes for kids and teens too.

One of my favorites that will get you outside together: Nature bracelets. Put masking tape...colored is even better...sticky side out around their wrists like a bracelet and roam the yard or a local park together and find interesting or pretty leaves, petals, stems, moss, etc to stick to it in any pattern that they want. I then cut them off at home and put them in a scrapbook or up on the kitchen corkboard. My daughter is 4 now and I still have the first one from when she was 2 up on our corkboard. Enjoy!
