If you’ve ever visited Pinterest (and made it out to tell about it!) you’ve read the notes on the crafts pinned to all those little boards. And I search for the ones that maybe a 3 or 4 year old could do. Well, they all say the craft is quick, easy, simple, even easy enough for a preschooler to do. I lead a cute group of kids in a preschool-like environment over at Tumble Time and we like to teach them crafts. Problem is, I keep believing the Pinterest notes about how easy they are to complete! Lauryn and I tried to test out some pine cone elves but after losing 2 mittens and 1 elf shoe in the sewing machine (it got eaten and I’m not really sure where it went!), we’re thinking we might give up on it.
And then there’s the cute little branch Christmas trees some nice lady said she did with her small child who was learning to tie his shoes. Problem is, I’ve been tying for a really, really long time and this craft is almost too difficult for me. Something tells me this might be one of those times a mom wants us to believe Johnny did his own family genealogy report. Not buying it! But all joking aside, I did manage to help the 3 and 4 year olds through this cute little Rudolf craft and we all loved them! And I only burnt one finger with the glue gun!
