Its about time for a kids craft at the Ginger Life Blog!
Although my husband and I don’t have kids, we are certianly kids at heart. I have proof.
1. We have a new favorite
Ice cream that is. The “Krazy Kookie Dough” Ice Cream from Blue Bell has risen to first place in our never ending search for favorite ice cream flavors. And look, this marketing is clearly geared towards kids.
2. We have to go see the newest kids movies in the theatre. Always.
Frozen, How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Lego Movie….You name it we were there, in the theatre on opening weekend riding it out with all the chatty kids and their parents “shhHH”ing every 2 minutes.
Why? Because we LOVE kids movies.
My recent favorite is Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. I can’t help but cracking up at this cleaver film. It was this movie as well as my job as an Occupational Therapist (OT) that inspired this lovely fine motor kids craft. As an OT I am always trying to find great crafts to promote strength in little hands. This can help kids with grip strength which in turn can allow them the ability to do a number of fine motor actives: writing, buttoning, cutting, stringing beads…this list goes on. Of course a child rarely needs JUST strengthening, but its almost always a good place to start.
