It's pretty hard to find crafts for toddlers that don't involve paint, glue or other messy things. I'm sure that most mom's don't mind those, but this mom sure does. You see, I am the proud owner of a Tot that will eat anything she thinks looks tasty. This includes paint, glue, crayons, carpet fuzz, plastic flowers and the tops of magic markers.
So I was quite excited to find this little craft in an old book my mother in law gave Tot a few months ago. All you have to do it get a paper plate, color the back of it (with the utmost of surpervision for those of you with hungry, creative kids), cut some lines in the middle and there you have it: A Hat! I added a little chin strap by punching two holes and threading a ribbon I had, but it's not necessary.
Tot promptly broke hers, but I had foreseen that event and made one, too. And if I say so myself, and I certainly do, my hat is utterly charming. Perhaps I'll wear it outside while weeding (if I ever did that), or to a party. I think it would go quite well with the nose stud.
Anyways, Tot loved it and it's a great craft to make that requires almost nothing and it super easy. So there you go, that's What Works For Me this Wednesday.
What works for you?
