For those who don’t know, this year I went back to teaching part time. It was a big change for our family, and my little boy felt it. At lot. The biggest thing he said he missed was that I never wanted to do crafts anymore. Getting everything out and coming up with something to do was just too much after coming home from school.
So I started the craft box, which is one of my more genius inventions. Every Sunday night, I sit down and pick out 5 crafts that look easy enough to do even if I’m tired. Then I prep the materials in an old mailing box. The kids can pick one craft a day out of the box, we do it, and voila! I am crafty mom again!
Anyway, the only way the box works is with super simple crafts, and this snake was a big hit. He only requires a few materials, takes just a few minutes, and the kids can play with him afterward. I chose to hot glue the wiggle eyes on for more security, but they will stay with Elmer’s glue if you give it time to dry.
