Crafty inconsequential randomness in all its glory

Collage with little fingers
Yep, another Peelu & Lukey afternoon craft session. What can I say - we're addicted! Here's the start, it's really easy, just grab a bunch of stuff that little kids can glue down! Here you can see that we used several crafty items that we have on hand: dyed pasta beads, buttons, patterned paper, tissue paper, feathers, sticks, pipe cleaners, fabric scraps, foamies.
A handful here and there was enough for these two to choose from.
Oh yeah, I used recycled frozen lunch containers for their collage tray. These work great for contained crafts for little ones. And we just used regular white glue to stick everything down. I did direct them a bit to start with a background first, explaining that the "flat stuff" covers the black container easier and makes for a nice background for the more 3-dimensional objects. They just LOVED picking items and gluing them down!
Peelu sure can wield a glue bottle! And Lukey had some definite design ideas. They were so darn proud of themselves and excited to show their collages off!
Yay! Another great crafter-noon with two of my favorite mini-crafters.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
