This should be one of the last babysitting post as summer is coming to an end! I am going to combine two days into one again!
The first thing we did was make marshmallow shooters! They really liked these! They are really easy to make also! These marshmallow shooters ended up in a marshmallow war! I didn’t know what I was getting into!
Materials needed: Dixie cups, balloons, mini marshmallows and also duct tape is handy!
Next we made was homemade paper spinners! These turned out really good! Also, a really easy project that keeps them entertained!
Materials needed: String, paper circles, cardboard, crayons, glue
Next they did a word search! I often find these things to pass the time!
We tried scratch paper with the right paint, but it still didn’t work too great! I was sad! You can try for yourself! You can you see how to do it on my last blog post!
I made a new cootie catcher! He had to do some writing. He wasn’t happy about that and didn’t do it! That didn’t go so well with me! She had to read! It lasted for 30 minutes and usually there is no talking, so that is really nice to have them busy using there creative mind!
These are some examples I put in the cootie catcher:
Go outside, read, do a talent show, teach me something, build a fort, be an artist.
Next we made minion puppets! I really loved how these turned out! They are really cute!
Materials needed: Craft sticks, yellow paint, blue paper, black pipe cleaners, googly eyes, black sharpie, hot clue gun
Next we made book corners! These are really my favorite, they turned out awesome and the kids enjoyed making them! They make good book marks!
Materials needed: origami paper, ruler, mechanical pencil, glue, a paper pattern (pdf)
Thank you for stopping by! Please tell others and share!
We started the day off with a game! We put masking tape on the ground and then we had pom poms and we tried blowing them with a straw and tried staying on the line of the tape! It was really challenging!
Materials needed: Pom poms, straws, masking tape
Next we did Origami! They loved that! The first thing we made was a frog and they loved making them hop over things! I had an origami book! Then we made faces if that is what you call it! I made a bunny!
Then it was cootie catcher time! He got to build a fort and she had to teach me something! She decided to teach me how to paint my nails! It was a ton of fun and they were using there creative minds!
Then we played Simon says draw! We have played it another time and had a ton of fun! It is where I say “Simon says” and tell them what to draw! It got really funny! It is a listening game!
The rest of the time we played with the doll house and did our own thing!
