I know that there are a lot of moms out there would be satisfied with that first “I am a Girl” or “I am a Boy!” footprint stamp that you get from the hospital after your baby is born, and leave it at that, but not me. I have been stamping, painting, brushing, and molding with my little ones and their itty bitty body parts ever since they were a day or two old. I have folders and folders of crafts to do with a baby on my computer. I’ve even tried to do crafts with my babies while they were in utero – but that’s a story for another time.
I think the main reason I craft is because it’s a way to capture the now. It’s a tangible way of living in the moment and being present, by constantly trying to preserve it. Even as I write this, my daughter is asking when I’ll be done with work so we can do handcrafts – that’s how trained my kids are. But even if you’re not a natural born crafter, there’s no reason not to try to have fun. After all, you don’t have to be a master crafter to accomplish these crafts. (In fact, it’s more fun if it’s a hilarious Pinterest fail than a picture-perfect rendition.) So break out the brushes, prep the paints, and great ready to do these 10 crafts with your baby.
