Who says having a craft night with your kids has to be expensive? Not me. A big fan of the crafts in the Dollar Store and other cheapie retailers like them
, I go in once a month to stock up on cheap crafts I can do with Princess D and without her (a total godsend in the middle of toddler “I want” tantrums… pull one out and away she goes.
The other night we were planning a cute castle making craft when I realized I had no glue. *Gasp* Toddler threatened to explode so I ran to the craft shelf and pulled out a box of trusted pipe cleaners. A variety pack costing me all of $2. And away we went…
We also made crazy pens and the next day Princess D went around the house trying to make other things with the pipe cleaners.
End result, quality time was had by both Mom and Child, toddler tantrums were nonexistent, and toddler got to use her imagination. Nothing like watching your kid act out characters they’ve made up.
Have you made crafts with pipe cleaners? I’d love to hear about them:)
