Since the coronavirus has me at home with my amazing children I am trying my best to enrich their lives with art-making. However, I feel like all the toddler art activities I find on Pinterest leave out all of the yelling and crying… so I made a more realistic toddler art demo. Enjoy.
Here are some of the results, and other art project attempts:
We started our social distancing with a cupcake decorating “project”. This was a fun way to engage both of my children in the creative process. It did require mid-day baths.
Then of course there was the classic PAAS egg dying Easter tradition. This went really well and nothing spilled because my one year old was trapped in his high chair, watching from a distance.
Then there was our “stained glass” egg making. You can see how “easy” this was in the video above. ^
A few other Easter themed activities included cutting out my kids paintings into the shape of an egg. (highly recommend this one, very easy) and covering eggs and paper bunnies in Mod Podge and having the children “help” me decorate them with leftover scraps from our stained glass project. Mostly they selected the scraps and sort of stuck them on. If I’m being honest these were more like my projects I let them watch me do…
Feel free to try these yourself! For my friends celebrating Passover, Hag Sameah v’ kasher! I think you could modify the stained glass eggs to be a three hole punch Haggadah cover, or a cool Afikomen hiding box!? Anyways, happy high holidays all, and stay safe this year!
