Fall Banner {Crafting with Kids}

 {Fall Banner}



Every morning during Bubby's morning nap Little Miss and I have a designated "special time" that I use to do a craft or activity with her. Now that we do this I see her need to create and work with her hands often. She's so proud of her work and loves to do everything by herself  "a-do-it" is something I hear a lot of.

Recently our mornings at the park have resulted in a large leaf collection and I thought we should display some of the beautiful leaves with a Fall banner. You can never have too many banners or bunting in one house can you? I think not! She chose four of her favorites and here is what we came up with!



Supplies:
Old Hymnal Pages
Glue
Stamps
Hole Punch
String or Jute
Scissors







She is so proud of her leaves and absolutely LOVED using glue for the first time.

  4. What a precious little girl and what a great Mom you are. Doing crafts with your sweetheart little girl is more important than many other things you could be doing, (like cleaning). Good for you. I just wanted to give her hugs and kisses, you too.
    Sure turned out great. She has a right to be proud of her glue-woman-ship.
