Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

Posts Tagged ‘teen craft

(I first did this craft when I decorated the rooms.  Then I decided to let the boys do their own.  If you don’t care what it looks like, just plunk down a bunch of stickers.  If you have a theme, only give them those stickers.  Or else chaos reigns.  And as long as there is chaos, there is fun.)

Things you need:

¨     Switch plate

¨     Stickers

¨     Clear nail polish

¨     Screw driver (regular head)

Either use the existing switch plate or buy a new one. 

A Switch plate (not to be confused with a switch pitcher)

A Switch plate (not to be confused with a switch pitcher)

Wash the switch plate.  Have the child decorate it with stickers. 



Coat with clear nail polish because it is easy to clean when on and the cheapest, most on hand sealer.  Screw switch plate in place.

Bath Salts

Posted on: May 4, 2009

(This is another easy gift to make.  The boys love shaking and smooshing until all the salt is colored.  You can use Epson salts or regular salt for this.)

Things you need:

  • Salt (as much as you want to make the salts)
  • Food dye
  • Essence or oils (editable oils work as well as the oil for making soaps and candles)
  • Zip lock bag
  • A jar

Have the child pour in the salt into the bag.  Help the child drop some food coloring into the salt as well as the oil.  Securely close the bag.  Have the child shake and smoosh the bag until all the salt is colored.  Pour into a nice jar.

(This is a very easy and very simple scrub.  The boys like to shake things up.  They also helped pouring in the ingredients.  This is an excellent scrub to use or to give as a gift.)

Things you need:

Equal parts of

  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Dry oatmeal

And a  container to put it in

Mix the sugar, salt, and oatmeal in a bowl.  Put the scrub into a nice jar. 

To use the scrub: Just wet skin, rub the scrub on, and rinse.

Nursery Rhymes

Many teachers have told me how important nursery rhymes are for child development. Jack be nimble. Jack be quick. Jack jump over A candlestick
