It's the first of the month, and time again to craft with us. I know we could probably do a craft post more frequently, but everyone has craft ideas, and Pinterest is full of them. When Babysitters In a Pinch posts a craft; we've done it, tested it, and will usually share pics that will never, ever look perfect because we are really, truly, crafting with kids; not doing it for THEM.

Crafting doesn't have to be finger painting, glue, water colors, crayons, play-doh etc. It can also be about introducing children to different artists, and trying to imitate what they do.

Some of the biggest frustrations that caregivers have are that they have to be a little more strict because they feel responsible for the safety of your children while they are in their care. Babysitters also worry about your home because we don't know if your children are allowed to use furniture as jungle gyms or bouncy castles.

Crafting with Babysitters In a Pinch

Can I just start this blog off with: I am sick to death of pictures of children online doing crafts that turn out perfect, AND everything is soooooo clean! Every craft I plan will inevitably be messy, and so messy that I will wish I hadn't done it. Plus the ones the kids do don't even come close to the picture of the craft they were making! So drop the expectations and remember that this should be all about fun, learning, sharing, and achievement for you and them.
