Mod Podge + Preschooler = Great Fun!

Logan has been keen to practice his scissor skills and asked the other night to do a craft with "paper and scissors". I took some origami paper that I had and cut it into strips -this allows him to make a cut with one snip and is a good start to learning to use scissors.
To add to the hand-eye coordination, I gave Logan a bowl for him to cut over and try to get the paper to fall into. He was very happy to sit and cut away!

Last week at Walmart they were clearing out the bottles of Mod Podge for a dollar! Knowing they are closer to eight bucks each, I grabbed one of each kind. Mod Podge is excellent for kids -it's non-toxic, it's washable and it multitasks as it is a glue, finish and sealer. We used the Mod Podge Sparkle and the Mod Podge Glow-in-the-Dark.
Using the sponge brushes again, Logan stuck the scraps of paper we got to a Coffee Mate can.
I held it for him and rotate it around. Logan enjoyed finding spots were we needed to put more paper.
Once it started drying we starting to see the sparkles. We mixed some more sparkle and glow-in-the-dark Mod Podge together and gave it a thick coat.

Afterward we went into a dark room to see it glow! Very impressive! We're going to turn this into a snack container for Grandpa for Father's day -this way he can easily find his midnight snacks! :D
