Looking for something fun to do on weekends with the kids?
Lakeshore Learning, the educational supply store, offers free crafts for kids every Saturday from 11am- 3pm. They have a fun and cute craft themed to the current month or holiday. Kids love to create, especially hands on. Crafting is not only a good way to entertain children, but it fosters development of motor skills, color and shape recognition, and experimentation with glue, paint, scissors and their own imaginations.
I took the kids last weekend and they did a Make and Play guitar craft. They were pretty cute! There are plenty of supplies spread out on the work table for kids to get creative. They started by decorating a paper plate and bowl glued to each other. The Lakeshore craft leader stuck a popsicle stick in the top and added two rubber bands as the guitar’s strings.
She’s painting glue onto one of the shapes she chose…
The finished product! She was so proud. Sorry, she kept moving the guitar so it’s a little blurry.
Stop by Lakeshore Learning Stores this weekend for a fun craft for kids!
