Last month I guest posted over at Paging Supermom with a Super Tip. I shared how I use construction paper to occupy my kids on a rainy day. My boys are filled with tons of energy, and when we can’t go outside and play I need a way to keep them busy indoors.
Chalk up the Paper
Make a Paper Chain
My two boys are four and five-and-a-half years old so I let them use safety scissors, but I still do the majority of the cutting for them. With the help of a glue stick they make construction paper collages and paper chains. When they use up the glue stick or get bored with that, I introduce a piece of chalk, crayons and markers. I find that by giving them new items here and there, instead of everything at the beginning, it keeps them interested longer.
