A few weeks ago I posted about my mom confession that I’m a lousy projecting mom. But after some encouraging comments, I realized that maybe I just needed to try easier projects…ones that didn’t take up an entire day, or ones that my child could actually do himself with only a little help from me, and ones that he’s actually interested in. Revolutionary, I know.
So we’ve been tackling a few easier projects together lately, and just this little change has made a big difference. I mean, I still don’t love to craft with them, but I’m getting better.
Our first project together was some easy monogrammed tote bags. Both boys absolutely love books, and every time we go to the library they can go a little overboard and then I end up carrying the stack of thirty books out to the car by myself (all the while trying to keep both of them from running in the street). So the new rule is that they each get a tote bag, and they can bring home as many books as they can carry!
- Tote Bags (I got mine in a goody bag a few years ago; similar here)
- Fabric Paint
- Sponge Brush
- Freezer Paper
Now take to the library and let your kids enjoy filling their special tote with books!
