During this time of COVID-19, many people are becoming very frustrated with entertaining their young children. Keeping little ones busy can be very draining. Parents should try to do arts and crafts activities with their little ones. It can be something as simple as a walk around the outside of your house and let the children pick sticks, acorns, pine cones, rocks, etc.. The children can then glue the object to paper, paint, trace, or create an object with them. Using items in the house is also possible. A project could be making a necklace or bracelet out of macaroni or beads, using an old sock to create sock puppets, use empty water bottles to create flower vases, draw a picture on a piece of paper and use dried beans to outline the jewelry. Below are some websites that can assist with art projects for your children.
