Simple Crafts for Preschoolers

Page history last edited by Jane McManus 5 years, 6 months ago

Most of these suggestions you already know. The consensus for Storytime crafts is to make it as simple as possible. The majority of our colleagues suggested NO SCISSORS. To facilitate a smooth transition, MOST of the projects are precut, and even preglued, so that just the coloring and enhancements were left to the little ones. (PUBYAC July 13, 2009)

(Some members suggested NO CRAFTS, just music and movement activities. You're in charge, you make the call. Please add YOUR suggestions.)
