Had a little crafting session with the two youngest granddaughters yesterday, whilst their Dad was putting in new disk drives in OH's computer. As I was sitting in the garden painting when they arrived, obviously they wanted to start off by doing some painting - the 2 yr old had the water colours out, and I allowed the 5 yr old to use the acrylics. She painted a great picture of her sister's old fashioned boy doll (shame I didn't get to take any photos). I also showed her how to do some Paint Fusion berries, pencil rubber flowers and the little swirly flowers! I do believe I have a convert!
They then discovered my Crafty Crocodiles stash and the eldest one wanted to make a spider - I got to do the messy part of painting the cotton-covered ball (my choice I might add for my sanity!) so this is the 5yr olds spider! I attached them to some stretchy cord.
Naturally the 2 yr old wanted to make one too, and this was her choice of colours (thankfully she wanted hers white). By the time this one had been jumped around on the cord - I think it looked more like an octopus than a spider!
