So a few Sundays ago I tried to come up with a fun and easy craft idea, but failed in the "easy" department since it involved so much clean-up.
But yesterday I nailed it.
Here is what you do: take a piece of paper. Cut out the largest triangle you can. Then, with a ruler and pencil, demonstrate to your kindergartner how you can turn one triangle into two by cutting it from one point to another side. Then, show her how THOSE triangles can be made into two more each. Then, make even MORE.
See how they get tinier and tinier but they are still triangles? Endless fun.
Then, guess what she did? She started making stuff out all those triangles. If you glue three together, you can make a fish with a fin and a tail! (we lost it--no photo, sorry). And a mask, if you cut out some holes for the eyes, and so on...
I am so proud.
