Today, my toddler and I were in charge of the play group at our church. It is a great way to meet other moms and for the toddlers to run off some energy. My toddler took a nap afterwards which is rare these days.
As part of the play date, we supply a craft for the toddlers. This time they made kites with paper, string and ink bingo dobbers.
I precut a 8×11″ paper into a kite shape. Then let the kiddos dab the ink wherever their heart desired.
Sometimes the toddlers splattered the ink but it was pretty cute. My daughter only used pink, purple and blue. I love seeing her personality show through her choices. Once she was done adding color, I hole punched the two sides and tied a string. With her completed kite, she ran around the room holding onto its string to let the kite fly.
