Creativity and craftiness are not my specialty. In fact, I would definitely label myself as creatively-challenged. I don’t have an artsy bone in my body.
BUT, I wish that I did. And now that I have kids, I really want to try to instill at least a little bit of creativity in them. I want to encourage them to make and create without feeling hindered by my own lack of creativity.
I have a few concerns about doing regular craft type activities that keep me from getting started with crafting with my kids – besides lack of craftiness, of course. I don’t know how to handle the materials and supplies needed for crafts, as well as what to do with the crafts once they are created. So I’m wondering…
How do you do “frugally green” crafts with your kids?
How do you feel about using supplies or materials one time, and then possibly recycling or throwing them away? And if you don’t throw them away, how do you deal with the organization and storage of completed crafts projects?
So, all you creative and crafty mamas (and dads too!) out there, I want, and need, your tips and advice for doing crafts with your children while still being a good steward of your resources!
