Who knows crafts are tons of fun! This is where you have a limited amount of crafting and miscellaneous items and see what you and your kid can make! Either you pick out the items or have your child.
Why Who Knows Crafts are the best!
- You (as the parent) can either create with your child or use this time as a chance to get some stuff done!
- You can use up old crafting supplies
- You will be surprised by what your child creates and will learn more about him/her!
- You can use anything!
You can literally use anything! There are a couple items that we use regularly and some that are rarely used. Make any combination of the items below and see what your kids create!
- Washi Tape
- Clear Tape
- Old Magazines/Newspapers
In this who knows craft I supplied my daughter with Washi tape, scissors, and colored dobbers (like the ones that old ladies love to use at Bingo).
Pick any combination of items. You can even throw in items from your kitchen. Have some sprinkles
that are starting to get old and sticky? Let your child use them on a craft the way they would glitter. It’s about thinking creatively with what your kid could use and then let their creativity shine!
Let them go! They will ask questions. Don’t tell the what to make! Just let them know that you are excited to see what they are going to create!
Almost every worthwhile career requires creativity. Having you child create regularly is key to their brain thinking outside of the box to solve real world problems!
Tell me what combination you gave your kid and what they made! I want to see pictures! Feel free to either post them or send them to me at Jenny@MakingitwithMommy.com
I can’t wait to see what you all made!
