How hard can it be to drag a 3 year old and a 4 year old away from Cbeebies? Much harder than you may think! Over the last day I have discovered that my nieces are even happy to watch the same programme three times in one day........so how did I finally manage to entice them away from their favourite hobby and get them doing something far up my street???
With crafting of course! We rummaged through some drawers and found scrap fabrics, yarn, pom poms etc and set to work. The only trouble is we had no glue so we had to tie on lots of bits instead. PVA would have been the best thing, but then again, crafting without glue creates far less mess which is perfect for someone who hates tidying like me!
They both got stuck in straight away, Sabrina created what can only be described as a 'disco diva' spoon puppet while Farah's attempt was far more of 'magician' type affair.
This is budget crafting at it's best. Being bored at home, finding scraps lying around and whipping them up into something special. Next up of course is putting on a puppet show though not sure if I have the energry left for that part!
