So maybe I'm a bit obsessed with using everything I find for crafting purposes...but L loves her SPICE JAR STENCILS so much, I just had to share! I usually turn our old spice jars into terrariums, but toss the little plastic lids with holes. Lately I've been saving them though, giving the lids to L to use as stencils!
We've found that markers work best for this craft. If you color the dots, then rotate the stencils carefully and color more dots, you can make all kinds of flower or sunshine patterns!
You'll be amazed how quickly your children will perfect the stenciling technique. At first, L had trouble holding the stencil in place while coloring in all the dots, but within 5 minutes of playing with it she had no problem!
I was happy just making flowers, but her 3 year old creativity expanded our flowers into sunshines and even fireworks! I love watching little minds at work!
Really this is a super simple activity, but your little ones will love it nonetheless! Enjoy!
