I love doing crafts with my daughter and I think it is important and valuable in her upbringing that she have arts and craft time on a regular basis. I think fostering creativity is an important thing and strive to nurture that quality in my children. That being said I am not gifted in the creativity department so when it comes to arts and craft ideas my poor daughter is being ripped off. Enter No Time For Flashcards, first of all I love the name it is so clever, second of all this site is just what I have been looking for.
Allie at No Time For Flashcards is an expert in the are of early childhood education not only is she a mom ( which qualifies her immediately) but she has been working with small children in various capacities since 1993 ( view her profile here). Allie’s site NTFFC provides age appropriate crafts, books, songs and other activities. It truly is a gold mine of information. I have only just started using her site and already have made several Christmas crafts to the utter delight of my daughter. Here are a few of my favorite Christmas posts she has:
There are so many other great crafts and lots of great book recommendations I could go on and on. I highly suggest in you are a mom to a young child to check out this site for lots of great ideas. Now I have a child who looks forward to craft time knowing it will be more than just crayons and a coloring book ( Thanks Allie). So what is saving your sanity this week? I would love to know please share I could use all the help I can get!
