I woke up today, and took one look outside and knew that today would be a lounging about at home day. The sky was gray, and while rain has been in the forecast, it has been dry so far. It seemed like a perfect day to tackle something off our 80 things to do this summer list. I mentally went through the list, and make a collage was the winner.
The girls and I flipped through a few magazines and found images we thought would work and I set to cutting them out. While I was cutting, I remembered that when I was a kid my grandma would occasionally mail my sister and I cut out images from magazines. I don’t have any memory of what we did with them, but I do remember being excited when they arrived.
We hit a bit of a snag when I realized that we didn’t have any glue in the house… Luckily, I found some craft glue for a Christmas craft in the laundry room, and was able to make that work. India has already selected her cutouts, and had a story to go along with them. Hadley was more interested in rubbing glue on her fingers.
We didn’t collage for long, but I think that the girls enjoyed it and we will do it again as I am sure we have not seen our last gray day this summer.
What crafts do you remember from childhood?
