We did this activity some time ago. It was actually to send a message to Papa via mobile wishing him a Happy Father’s day but it could obviously serve you for any type of message and best of all in … Continue reading
Is this really a craft? or more like a recipe. Well, I got inspired by this delicious candied orange peel recipe which we tried last week. However, I felt more inclined to include this post in a Crafty Tuesday due to the dedication my children showed when “cutting” letter shapes and then spelling out little words:) So it stays here (with other versions of orange peel ideas coming in the following weeks), as a craft instead of a recipe.
Cutting Orange peel is so easy and even relaxing for the little ones. They really concentrate when trying to follow a certain shape and the texture is so different from common paper or even cardboard as it requires little effort.
And just to fulfil the spelling purposes of these little fellows…
Needless to say, you can make up your own words in ANY language or alphabet as for the ingredients you will use:

Happy Crafting! Happy Reading! Happy Snacking!
Initially I was looking to entertain my kids with a fun idea I got from a game similar to this one.
I gathered some pins and thought fabric would do, but then saw that foamy shapes would work better and they would be easier for my 2 year old daughter to cut. We ended up with a couple of robots made mainly out of squares and rectangles.
But then as I was looking for more ideas I had these rubber bands so I thought of making shapes by pulling them around 2 rubber bands, then around 3, 4,etc. to name more shapes, but I let them to it while they figured out how to create something by themselves.
After that, even myself got stuck to the board trying to figure out which rubberbands were noisier, stronger, longer, etc. We had great fun!
They noticed that the sound of a single rubber-band could change when around 4 or five pins depending on its length and taut/slackness, you can see that some of the bands are shorter/longer or thicker /thinner, lots to talk about! and they were sooo amused, so much that first thing in the morning they there were again, trying shapes and listening to the beautiful sound strings of plastic can make. Lovely activity that again kept them busy for a good part of the morning.
I guess we will find so many more things to do with our cork board, until then we have stirred some interest in music, not that my son is not interested already in musical intruments but what a fun way to make the little ones understand where vibration/sound is coming from.
