Due to a painful comment from Taderbug where she told me I NEVER did anything fun with them, I broke out the crafty stuffs and plopped down on the kitchen floor for some fun.
In the end I cried and tried not to yell as they both abandoned me half-craft to go play with their friends and left me to clean up.
I saw the idea for Modge Podge Shoes over on Ashley’s blog Make It and Love It a while ago. When I stumbled upon some canvas tennies at that big WAL-store for $1 I snagged the girls each a pair with full intentions of making them skirts and matching shoes.
I plan to do a lot of things. Much of it is on my Round Tuits list.
So I pulled out the shoes and some tubs of scrap fabric, my modge podge and some paint brushes and we went to town.
That is, until they thought their friends might be home and they left me to go back outside and play. You know, me and my glue and brushes and scraps all sprawled out on the floor waiting for me to pick them up. Yea… cuz kids ROCK like that.
Here’s where they stopped:
What craft have you been dumped in the middle of? Do you try to stick to quick crafts? How do you motivate your kids to stick to a craft that requires time and patience?
