Today I wanted to post the projects I did for my first ever Mommy & Me class. I featured the stamp set from the January Paper Pumpkin kit - Filled with Love. I wanted to target kids between 3-8 but it's a little closer to 4-7. We did three projects and I had the kids rotate tables so that they could meet new friends and so could their moms. It was a blast. A little hectic but 9 kids between 4-7 will do that to you.
The third project was a simple Valentine's Day card using Notecards & Envelopes. This project had them using the Texture Boutique, which was magical for them. They used the Happy Hearts folder on a piece of Pink Pirouette that was cut to 4 x 3 1/2. They layered it will a glue stick so no mess at this station. They put the heart that was left over after I cut the second project on it and then stamped the saying on the strip of white and layered with dimensionals. "Stickers" are also a big deal at this age.
The cost for the camp was $5. I heard that wasn't enough but it covered my supplies and it was worth it watching all those little crafters enjoy themselves the way I do when I'm crafting. Paper Pumpkin kits are perfect for little crafters because they can't ruin the photopolymer stamps and the ink spots are easier for their little hands to work with than big pads. I know often we keep our supplies out of their little hands but sometimes, give them a scrap and some ink and see the artistry unfold. Their pride in their work will be worth it.
Have a craftastic day,
