I grabbed these grates from the microwave. If you have a toaster oven - you could use that too!
The paper rolls were from someone's birthday.
I tore them into strips and then had them weave.
Everyone was focused on this activity.
My one year old plopped into my lap and wanted to do it too.
It is times like these that make me realize how important it is to stop and "play" with my children.
They need it, and pretty soon they turn 5 and don't "need" me anymore.
I encourage you to pick an activity and DO it with your children.
They truly love to explore and learn WITH you.
Also - save the crepe paper "scraps" I will be using it in another activity. Recycling! YES!
