Keeping the kids busy, happy and enriched without spending frivolously is my daily challenge. After school we ride bikes, bake muffins, go to the library, work in our garden, kick the soccer ball – do something active. But there comes a moment when they’re ready for some down time and if I’m not prepared with a craft project they usually ask for TV or device time. So I save all kinds of paper goods, household items, shipping materials, old fabrics/clothes, plastic bottles, toilet paper rolls ANYTHING that can be used. I squirrel it away and save it for craft time. We always have art supplies (I pick up things I see on sale) so we sit at the dining room table and just create. There’s always a holiday, birthday, event, occasion coming up so that’s typically the inspiration for our project. We transform junk into decorations, cards, goofy gifts for whatever is coming up. Craft time is creative time!
