Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

Archive for May 20th, 2009

(Did I mention we picked up a lot of rocks on our nature walk?  We decided to make some paper weights.  We made some a few months ago for their grandparents.  We glued on some of those half-marbles.  This time Sean decided on shells from a shell lei.  This is an easy project for 12 month old on up.)

Things you need:

  • Rocks
  • Smock
  • Paint or markers
  • Glue
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Shells, buttons, plastic gems, beads, whatever you like to add

Go on a rock hunt with the kids.  Wash and dry the rocks.  Have the child decorate the rock.
