Kids squabbling? Driving you a little crazy? How about a quick little craft to keep the kids busy while you get something done. You most likely have all the supplies on hand…
Hanging Wall Pocket:
Supplies to decorate the pocket
(We used Crayons, construction and tissue paper and glue.)
Cut one of the paper plates in half. Each wall pocket is a full plate and half plate. Decorate the plates. We didn’t get too fancy, just a little coloring and gluing different paper shapes.
Then while they ate lunch, I lined up the plates and punched holes along the pocket with the hole punch.
I gave them a little bit of string and let them “sew” up the wall pocket. They needed a little help keeping the plates steady while lacing them, so I added a little staple to the bottom of the pocket.
Tada! Aren’t they cute? so proud of their creations!
