They’re the two words kids say that every parent dreads. OK, they’re not the only two, but the moment they’re uttered, it can sometimes feel like an impossible task keeping them entertained. Instead of leaving them to their tablets or the TV, this is the perfect opportunity to create long-lasting — and in this case tangible —memories.
How, you ask?
Pull out the coloring pencils, crayons and markers, and give the kids free reign to scribble their hearts away. And luckily for you, we have plenty of printable craft templates on hand to help kids embrace their artistic talents and let their imaginations run wild.
So plug in that printer, slide in some paper and — voilà! — suddenly those kids have access to hours upon hours of artsy family fun. And, hey, if you have other arts-and-crafts supplies lying around, turn these pages into a mixed-media art project. The possibilities are truly endless.
