This weeks crafting...

Trying to be more creative with my boys and their tiny attention spans!

We collected some twigs yesterday to make a pretty tree ( I had to eat a lot of chocolates to get enough wrappers!) This kept them entertained for at least 3 minutes.

Today I tried a bit of apple printing with some questionable apples. They managed a couple of prints each before they decided to paint their hands instead. I was planning on using the apples to make a number line, so might have to do some more to make enough. when I finish decorating the half pretty tree that is.

Interestingly my two year old manages to focus on these crafty activities for double the length of time of the five year old. A case in point about the negative effects of too much television on children's concentration.
