    Default Craft ideas for 15 month old

    I want to do some little craft gifts for the family from DD. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe a little bauble or something that she can decorate? I haven't really done craft with her yet as she's so young (she does guided painting and stuff at daycare).

    Thanks!

    Finger painting is always good fun. I use to just strip my boys naked and let them go wild lol

    Depending on how advanced your child is will depend on what sort of stuff you will be looking at.

    Maybe cut out a shape (star or xmas tree) and stick clear contact to it and have your DD put pre cut up umm.... whats that clear stuff called??? lol I cant remember..... I use to cut up different colours and then they stick it to the contact and it makes a nice hanging picture with the sun shining through it....

    I saw some kits for mugs at bunnings today so maybe something like that. I can get her to do handprints on them or something. Hmmm...

    Xmas related.. Brown or plain coloured paper cheap per roll get her to do hand and foot prints all over or go bananas with some Xmas shaped stamps. Lay the roll out on a flat surface. Go nuts with paint and dry. Roll it back up and you have divine personalise Xmas gift wrap that is super cute and easy!

    You can get ceramic paints from spotlight too. My DS-6 did a mug for fathers day with fingerprints and drawing. They have paint pots and felt pens. All sorts of Colors. Paint on a plain mug then bake. It's pretty good stuff. Months later after daily use and hand washing the pic is still clear.

    Pic is sample. Ours were a bit different. But similar idea. U could use plates too!

    Oh. I just remembered also. Last year I got some cute baubles from spotlight that have a space to insert a pic. U could take a cute pic and put some text over it 'merry Christmas 2012' etc.

    Nice little item that would be cute to see brought out each year. I ttly forgot about them. I bought heaps to use as gifts this year. : )
