The triplets love crafts, and I try to do one with them every day, sometimes are more successful the others! If you’re new to my blog here are some of the crafts the kids and I have done over the years:
- Pudding Painting (scroll through the pictures to see the pudding painting pics!)
- Finger Painting
One of the triplets favorite crafts is using BINGO dobbers to paint with! Where did I get the idea of BINGO dobbers for crafts? On my cruise a few months ago, my cousins and I went to play BINGO almost daily. On the last day of the cruise people were tossing their dobbers in the trash, I on the other hand had big plans for them! I happily collected TONS of bingo dobbers from fellow patrons! No lie, I probably packed 30 bingo dobbers home with me!
Brandi & I showing off all the dobbers I collected after the final BINGO game! Sorry there’s a bad glare, I blame that (haha, see my last post) on my sister Alex who was taking the photo and failed to mention the glare!
I get the dobbers out, the kids grab the ones they want and then go at it! Sometimes they ‘dob’ other times they ‘paint’ with them, either way they have fun! We also have a big box of stickers, I dumb the box out and they have a hay day with adding stickers to their masterpieces!
Dobbers are a CHEAP and fun craft activity for young kids, especially if you don’t want to deal with the messiness of real paint! I bought several lots of stickers on Ebay, just random stickers. Doesn’t matter what the stickers are, they just love sticking them on paper! Oddly enough, toddlers always seem to stick their stickers on top of each other…strange!
We’re always looking for craft ideas, what are some of your favorite kids crafts?!
