Now that Adelaide is at school most of the day (7AM-4:30PM it's breaking my heart every time she comes home and is confused at why I am serving her dinner), Arabella and I have lots of one on one time. She's great at playing by herself but I can tell she misses her big sister. I am trying help occupy her on the day she doesn't have preschool. Bella's attention span for crafts is very small so I thought painting the sugar cubes might be a perfect easy craft for her.
Maybe you have a child that has a short attention span for art work too. This might just be the thing for them.
Sugar cubes-the cheaper the better
paint brushes, bowl, towels
piece of cardboard (to paint and build on-paper works too but my kids tend to use too much water)
