Her first Pinterest craft..
Posted November 22, 2014on:
Before bed, M and I sometimes browse Pinterest on my phone.
She LOVES looking through the Christmas pins, so we’ve been finding some toddler-friendly Christmas crafts to do.
One big shopping trip to Joann’s later, we had enough supplies to start working on these Christmas crafts.
M and I started with this pin. Clicking on the picture will take you directly to the pin. Clicking here will take you directly to the pin’s website.
These items were super easy to find at Joann’s AND they were reasonably priced. All these items costs less than $10 and we have enough to make about 10-15 candy canes. Perfect to hang around the Christmas tree this year.
M loved stringing the beads onto the pipe cleaners. She started off following a traditional candy cane pattern of alternating red and white, but after awhile I let her just do her own thing. After finishing the first candy cane, she was so proud of herself. She held it so carefully so she wouldn’t ruin the shape and would look at it many times.
She wanted to make a second one. She started off ok, but being three years old, the lure of just playing with the beads was just too strong. So I finished the second one for her, and I let her continue to play with the beads. We counted them, lined them up on the ground, and sorted them by color. It was a great learning opportunity AND a super fun craft!
I can’t wait to work on more Pinterest Christmas projects with her!
