A Mixed Media by Sabine.

A Mixed Media by Sabine.

A couple weeks ago I put together an art box for Sabine with a bunch of odds and ends from crafts I did years ago. The box has some blank notecards (our personal favorite for painting because you can later fold them and send them to grandparents!) stamps, stickers, papers, punches, crayons, glitter, cookie cutters, etc. This week we added these awesome little Crayola Paint Pots. They were just a few dollars at Target and are PERFECT for little hands and fingers.

We keep all our arts and crafts in an IKEA tub that has a lift out bin on top. Very handy for all the little things. It fits perfectly in our hallway wardrobe, too, so it is super easy to get to.

The top part of the tub has small stuff, crayons, paints, punches, stamps, etc.

The bottom has a big container of glitter, large punches, the glue gun and other glues. This is a fun box!

I knew that I would be parking Sabine in front of the TV for at least an hour yesterday to work so we started our day off with waffles and crafts. She had so much fun expressing herself! I’m really excited to seeing her taking to crafting. She inspects everything with such care and is so proud when a project is finished.

After we painted, glued punches, colored and glittered our card we moved on to inspecting the paint pots and painting our placemat.

And when all is said and done, the art is hung on our fridge, the paint cleaned up, supplies returned to the box and we move on to our next task!

    I so want to do arts and crafts with my daughter but she usually a) eats the crayons and b) flings stuff EVERYWHERE. How do you manage? Or is Sabine just that careful? I would love to do some card painting….

    Love this!! My 19 month old twins are on a crafts kick right now as well – and crayons are all the rage!

    I love this! My 19 month old also loves to create art! We just bought some bingo markers, they are the perfect size for little hands to grasp and don’t get AS messy as other paints.

    Isn’t this so much fun? I love doing arts and crafts with the quads.
