You will all agree that keeping the kids gainfully engaged is a challenge in itself. I’m sure you have tried various things and I too have left no stone unturned.
After various trials, I have figured that my kids love crafts – much to my relief! I am a total DIY sucker to say the least. Like all you mothers, I am constantly juggling between kids, responsibilities at work, duties at home and family and social commitments. As a result I usually plan quick and easy activities that do not require too much prep.
- Finger puppets
This is a fun indoor activity and a great savior when the rain gods make sure that kids cannot venture outdoors.
Some card stock or any thick paper,
Googly eyes (optional)
Sketch pens / paints / crayons
Lots of imagination
Just draw the figures you see here on the paper. Colour the puppet in your favourite colour and cut out the legs/ trunk etc of the animal for the fingers to pass thru!
Its easy-peasy and super fun!
