I'm not exactly the artsy craftsy KoolAid mom who keeps styrofoam meat containers, carries a glue gun on a tool belt, or is always prepared for necklaces because macaroni is bought in bulk. (Don't get me wrong - we buy pasta in bulk, but it's for consumption, not crafting!) It becomes a challenge when summer boredom kicks in; kids are sick of the pool, and it seems too hot to fire up the oven to bake a treat, much less a clay sculpture.
- Popsicle Stick..anything! We seem to have a plethora of popsicle sticks this time of year, and we have had fun making frames, birdhouses, boats, lamps, baskets, puppets, log houses & villages, and one of the girls even made a purse. To add time on to the project...bust out the paints and glitter glue! (now if someone would just come up with an art project involving Otter Pop wrappers...)
