TP Roll Flower Egg


Paper Egg Craft #5


To me, nothing brings a stronger sense of panic than getting to the end of the Toilet Paper roll and realizing I forgot to re-stock the stash under the sink. But that same little, empty, cardboard-roll that inflicted so much anxiety & fear can also be the source of tons of fun and joy, as evidenced in this cute and simple craft.

Supplies:
  • 1 Egg cut out of white cardstock
  • Paint
  • Toilet paper roll, or paper towel roll.
Here's what you do:
  1. Cut slits into the end of a TP-roll and bend the edges back so it looks like a flower (shown below).
  2. Pour paint out on paper plates--whatever colors you'd like.
  3. Dip the TP-roll flower into the paint and stamp it onto the egg! 

**And even if it's not for Easter, you can also use this same technique to make a fun flower painting any day of the year!

Crafts & Activities for BOYS!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)




And if you are wondering where to get SUPPLIES for these crafts and activities, check out this post!

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes
(This game is also a great way for preschoolers to learn!) 
This Dinosaur building activity uses craft foam, which means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are truly endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
