St. Patrick's Day Crafts

Pin It now! I ordered Dawson a table and chairs set two weeks ago and last week it came in! I was able to put it together while he was napping and when he woke up I was anxious for him to try it out, so I had a couple activities set up for him.

First of all I printed out a St. Patrick's Day page for him to color. I have tried coloring with him a few times since before he was even a year old and he really hadn't gotten the hang of it. He was more interested in eating the crayons. So I really didn't expect him to do much, but I figured we would try again anyway and he totally surprised me! He colored! On the paper (and on the table, thank goodness for Mr. Clean Magic Erasers!) and he did such a great job!

I love how he was actually moving the crayon back and forth on the paper. Yay!

Don't you just love it?! I am so proud!

Next up was a sticker collage. A few weeks ago I saw a post over at Three A's and a C where she did a sticker activity with her daughter who is about the same age as Dawson, and I knew I wanted to try it with Dawson, too!

I handed him the stickers and let him put them wherever he wanted. I had to push the stickers down after he placed them because he kept trying to take them back off.

Here is how his sticker collage turned out:

He had a lot of fun and so did I. I am happy we have a little table for him to do crafts at now, I'm sure we are going to get a lot of use out of it.

We just started a "work" craft table at our house. We do projects after dinner to start to wind down the day.

Go Dawson! I can't believe I 1st used a magic eraser this past month- they are wonderful! My little man decided to color the walls with pen (and the white door).
