Crafting Tip: Play-Doh can be softened again by adding a few drops of water and kneading the Play-Doh until the moisture has been evenly distributed. If your child doesn’t want to play with it right away, you can wrap the Play-Doh in damp paper towels and place it back in the container overnight. The next day it should be good as new!
Paint smocks are a great way to keep your child clean while crafting. For a do-it-yourself smock, simply use an old, adult-size, button down shirt. Cut the sleeves shorter so that they don’t get in the child’s way, and you have a paint smock that keeps your child’s outfit from splatters and spills.
Crafting Tip – Not everything your child crafts is a masterpiece. Since crafts are often 3-dimensional, they can quickly accumulate and take up space. Say goodbye to some old crafts to make room for new projects. We gain value from crafting in the making of it.
