The time we spend with our children is precious. We sink into everyday life. Anxiety to catch everything and we are busier with work, while we leave our children without spending time together! And so they end up in front of a screen!
There are so many things we can do with children … Of course starting with the game! Playing is a process that can help them at any stage of their lives, even the whole family, to bring it closer. It can help at younger ages when the game is considered more “lonely”. At an age when children have started learning more and more about the world and have so many questions! In the ages of pre-adolescence and adolescence, there are many times we have lost communication with them!
At the same time, we can deal with and make small constructions, depending on the age. There are so many things we can either show them how to do or do together.
In our case, at some point, I noticed the need to put his markers in a pencil case. So, I thought of creating our improvised pencil cases. I started looking for ideas that might be useful, so that we can spend creative time together, instead of buying new ones. So I want to show you what we did with my little creature to put his markers.
One idea was to use a box of well-known coffee, thread, Canson paper, eyes, a bottle cap. It may not have turned out perfectly, but it was our construction … You can see the result below …
The second one we tried to make was a marker case with a cardboard box, toilet paper, colorful wrapping paper, craft glue. See the result …
The essential result
He loved it and uses both constantly!!!
Needless to say, you can put your child to decorate his pencil cases as he wants!!! Give him the opportunity and let him create the pencil case of his choice. It can be decorated with different materials. From stickers of his favorite heroes to buttons, threads, and whatever he wants.
Perfection is not always the result. Sometimes perfection lies in the enjoyment of the process and the time we dedicate to our children!
Give them the freedom they need and they will amaze you with their ideas and taste!!! So get to work with your child immediately!!!
