Bennett really enjoys making crafts, and as he gets older there are more that he can do by himself. This makes him infinitely happy.
I came across a fun way to use a toilet paper roll at Prudent Baby. The original post is from Rust and Sunshine. You take a toilet paper roll and shape it into a heart to make a stamp! Brilliant!
He made a bunch, about 12, to give out at his class Valentine’s Party.
I had everything already on hand, a pack of 4.5 x 6 cardstock sheets, red acrylic paint left from painting some wooden letters, and a toilet paper roll, of course. A bit of scotch tape helps to keep the heart shape while stamping. We did end up buying some pink envelopes at Michaels with a $5 off a $5 dollar purchase the other day, so they were free!
Bennett was quite pleased that he made them all by himself and wanted to make sure there was a Valentine for his teacher too. :) Hooray for Homemade Valentines!
This craft reminded me that I want to buy some trays to do this type of craft on. Something to keep an eye out for.
