It’s been a LONG winter here in Upstate, New York. The kids and I have experienced our share of stir crazy moments, but this spring craft brought a little sunshine to our day. My children are at a “hands-on” age and they love hearing me say, “Let’s make a craft!” But as a busy mom, I’m all about crafts that are fun AND easy.
For this kid-friendly craft project, you will need the following supplies (no painting involved…we just loved the above photo!). Feel free to adapt the materials as needed based on your current supply stash:
- construction paper
- paper bags
- glue stick/tape
- helping clean up toys
- giving someone a hug
- clapping for someone who did a good job
- helping someone cross the road
- folding hands to pray
- drawing a get-well card
The book One Hand, Two Hands is a great resource for this very discussion! It spurs conversation about how their little hands are a blessing for God that they can use to help others. The rhyming text is catchy and cute and my children really enjoyed the illustrations. Sometimes as parents we can forget that things as simple as our hands should be used to glorify and honor God in our daily lives.
What are some fun crafts that your family does during spring time? Maybe this spring craft for kids could be a new way to start conversations in your home about how our hands might bless and serve others!
Traci Little: Traci is a curly-headed dreamer who loves her Savior, adores her best friend called Hubby, and her three children! She never knew how much she would love being at home full time with her kids, but she does (most days)! What a privilege and high calling! She loves to blog, take pictures, cook, decorate cakes, and make her home cozy and inviting! She also enjoys teaching women God’s Word through Bible studies at church and online devotions. It is her desire to glorify God through encouraging and edifying other women. It is her heart’s cry to motivate women to abide in Christ, respect their spouse, and raise their little ones to know the love of Jesus. God’s grace captivates her in such a way that she wants her life to make a difference for His glory. Connect: Website Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest
