Turn the treasure selection into a fun game.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Families with kids know that rocks from park visits from months ago, action figures from the latest kids meals, and pretty leafs from the front yard somehow appear anywhere in the house. Keeping all of the clutter in check can be a daunting challenge.
One Mom's idea to play a game of keep and discard can be a solution. Simply gather all items that are laying around the house in a bucket. Let the kids take turns taking out items based on their likes and dislikes. Turn this process into a fun game. What remains after 20 plus rounds can be trashed or turned into a rock garden.
All items that have been claimed during the game can be stored in a special container. An inexpensive metal tool chest from the local department store can turn into a perfect treasure chest.
Paper plate crafts are so much fun. The paper plate mask tips turn ordinary paper plates into works of art. Kids of all ages will be amazed at the mask creations.
Paper plates make perfect mask material since they do not easily rip. The plates bend perfect to fit faces. Materials needed to make the fun paper plate masks are paper plates, water colors, glue, glitter, toilet paper rolls, and pipe cleaner or string.
Begin by cutting out the shape of the mask. Cut out two holes for the eyes. Use the template for different mask designs. Use water colors, glitter, and glue to complete the mask.
Attach the string or pipe cleaners and fit to the size of the kid's head. Ready are the cool masks that provide hours of pretend play.
