Pinterest Love ~ Educational Crafts for Kids

Have you heard of Pinterest? It’s a website where you share and “pin”… Well, things. Everything from crafts to fashion, from inspiring quotes to funny internet memes and macros. It’s a place to save ideas for decoration, for holidays – basically, it’s a huge time-suck. I Pin at least two-three times a week and once I start it’s really hard to stop. I wanted to share a few of my favorite Pins from this week with you from my board, “Teach Your Children Well”!

A “math wheel”! Use clothespins and a circle divided into sections. Let your children align the numbered clothespins with the corresponding number of decorated spots on the wheel. You can customize this so many ways; color the clothespins, use hearts or flowers or smiley faces instead of the asterisks.. Your imagination is the limit with this fun, educational craft!

Paper plates, a hole-puncher, colored paper and markers are just a few of the simple supplies you’ll need to make this fun counting caterpillar. You can find all of the supplies you’ll need, plus instructions on how to guide your kids through this craft here.

What do you do when you’ve got some Oreos to eat and a bored kid? Teach them about the phases of the moon! Get a paper plate and a marker and get ready to munch the Oreo cream to teach your children the different phases of the moon! Enlist their help to get the bite marks just right!

Hope you enjoyed the our first Pinterest feature. There will be many more to come – trust me! I love to Pin and share what I find on Pinterest!
