Grandma's Bag of Tricks

What craft loving kids would not squeal in delight if grandma showed up at their door with a tote filled with craft supplies? I surprised four of my grands yesterday when I showed up at their door (mommy knew I was coming) for a couple of hours of crafting fun.

I also took along a vinyl tablecloth to protect our workspace and a small snack to share while we were together.

In the tote: A variety of construction papers, paper plates, paper sacks, googly eyes, pencils, crayons, markers, colored pencils, scissors, paper cutter, stickers, glue sticks, tape, stapler, and a ruler. 

They used their very creative imaginations to create some really fun projects from the supplies I had brought. We created a little art show display for mom to see when our crafting session was over.

Everyone was happy. Mom enjoyed the free time and the excitement of the kids showing off their artwork, the kids had a great time, and I adore crafting (doing anything)  with my grands!


  1. So funny. Great minds do indeed think alike, as my post today was about Grandma's Bag. :o)

  2. Wow, you have it all covered, even the snacks! I'm impressed.
