There are simple and easy things you can do so you can keep the process more pleasant and enjoyable. Remember, you need to show your kids how to keep tidy and clean every day not only while you are crafting together.
- declutter– starting a crafts when all toys, blocks, and snacks are around is the worst idea. You need to tidy your crafting area and make sure the table surface is clean and there are no uneccessary items around.
- sort and organize- when crafting you need different types of tools: paterns, decorations, coloring and cutting tools. It would be easier to sort them before you strat your project so you can find everything you need in a seconds before you glue your fingers. Use boxes and jars for the small decorations and items in order to have a well-organized crafting area.
- clean after crafting– once your crafting projects are completed it is time to clean and put everything back in order. All cut offs, small pieces of paper and empty glue tubes go to the trash. Sort the other leftovers and keep them organized in boxes and jars.
It is time to get glued and make the coolest paper plate crafts your kids will have fun with!
