Kid culture is ever changing. It can be tough to keep up will all of the fads that come and go. Silly bands are out; snap bracelets are long gone; fidget spinners are taking over the world… and so on. So what is a mom to do if she wants to surprise her daughter with some fun and relevant craft ideas, but she doesn’t have time to keep up with the trends? It’s easier than you think. Emojis are one popular cultural icon that does not seem to be going anywhere. Here are four easy, kid-pleasing, low-mess craft ideas that your daughter will love—and that you will love to do with her.
Sometimes emotions can be pretty overwhelming, can’t they? Even as adults and mothers, who are in charge of lots of big important things (like our dear daughters’ welfare), we can sometimes find ourselves unable to hold our feelings inside, but aren’t sure about the most productive ways to express them. Now think about being a little kid with little experience in how to express yourself, and add on a small vocabulary, and the inability to understand why we can’t always have things our way. No wonder our daughters’ moods sometimes devolve into temper tantrums! That’s why finding new ways to help kids learn to express themselves can be so useful (not to mention fun).
