Good morning and welcome to Day 24 of 31 Days of Resolutions!
While I love making things with my daughter, be it arts and crafts or food, I don’t do it as often as I should because it usually involves a lot of mess and a lot of cleaning afterwards. My daughter turned two 3 months ago and is really starting to enjoy creating things. She loves to draw and paint, play dough is always a hit, and she’s even starting to enjoy helping in the kitchen.
So today I’m going to encourage her adventurous and creative spirit! We’re going to paint! Gasp! Yes, it will be messy, but I’m going to embrace the mess and have fun with my little girl.
In case you need a little inspiration, I’ve rounded up some great ideas for you on crafts and recipes that you can make with your kids!
