DIY Easter Wreath
GoodGrandma℠ decided to make an easy DIY Easter craft with two-year-old grandson, Jude. The kindergarten teacher in me wanted him to have a learning experience as well as have some fun. I found a free Easter wreath printable from Preschool Play and Learn.com. I gathered the needed materials and set out for our playdate.
The main IDEA of this project was to introduce scissors to Jude. Parenting.com recommends teaching toddlers how to use scissors between the ages of two-and-a-half and three. I would agree! If your child or grandchild knows how to correctly use scissors before starting kindergarten, they are ahead of the game. This is not only helpful to the teacher (who isn’t able to work one on one with each and every student long enough) but this saves the child from frustration in a classroom setting.
Jude and I discussed scissor rules, the do’s and don’t’s with scissors, and I left him his own pair of child scissors to practice (when mommy says it’s okay). I was proud of Jude! He didn’t give up and was excited to try something new. I love and miss this part of teaching; learning is FUN!
