Every Wednesday I keep my nephew, Ethan (6 mos), and my niece, Jamie (age 2). I am trying to think of fun things for the girls to do. Today I had them color on hearts that were glued to popsicle sticks.
Scribbling is the first step to writing and it is good for developing fine motor skills. This is something we will be doing more often since I found out today that Jamie doesn't really know how to hold her crayon and to scribble.
To finish off the project I placed the girls colored heart into a soup can that had been wrapped in scrapbook paper.
Megan would hand me her finished heart and then say "more." (Her project is on the right.) The girls had so much fun that I need to find some more ideas for crafts with toddlers. If you have any suggestions or know of a good resource please let me know.
