Do you like this story?
Last week my kids had an afternoon filled with non-stop fighting. I couldn't take it anymore...so we did a craft. It seriously works every time!
We picked up some books about Ants at the library so making this picnic ant craft was perfect!
After the ants were dry, they used a black sharpie to add the details to the ants. (We got inpatient with the drying time so I whipped out the blow dryer to dry the paint more quickly.) Luke accidentally turned a couple of his into spiders with 8 legs instead of 6. :)
Andy added antennae to the ants as well, and he added a couple black spiders. Later in the afternoon Andy came and gave me a big hug and said, "Thanks for doing the ant project with us Mom!" It was so sweet. It is small things like that, that make me love doing crafts with my kids.
Here are a couple of fun books that go along with this craft:
