I'm always on the hunt for quiet activities to keep my kids entertained during church. We have a mini backpack that is reserved specifically for Sunday mornings to keep the activities inside fresh and a little more exciting than things they get to play with regularly.
Crayon rolls are adorable and fit the requirements perfectly for a church activity. I have had this on my to-do list for quite some time, so using scrap fabric, I put one together. "Skip to My Lou" has an excellent and easy-to-follow tutorial that takes all of the guess work out of the measurements.
The girls loved using it, and the novelty of it seemed to make them stay interested in coloring for a little while longer than normal (I know it will wear off, though!).
While we are on the topic of church...
Beginning Wednesday, I will be teaching the 1st grade Bible class on Wednesday evenings. I wanted to create a cute, yet thought provoking board for the class, but I was having difficulty coming up with any ideas. While searching through art supplies, I came across some plain clip boards. I was inspired by this post, and decided to decorate my bulletin board around them.
You know that I love dirtying my hands with mod podge, so I was eager to get started applying the coordinating paper. The process was quick and virtually fool proof - don't you love projects like that?
The pictures were taken with my phone, so please forgive the poor quality.
I am thinking that I would like to put together a few more clipboards for around the house. They would be great for holding lists, chore charts, homework, etc.
Do you have any clipboard ideas? What about suggestions for quiet activities for use at church, on a plane, etc? I always love hearing other people's ideas.
