I believe that young children are natural builders. They are fascinated by working with blocks, cardboard boxes and other stackable materials. Printable Robot Coloring Page - Dabbles.

Printable robot coloring page – Over the past week or so I’ve been on holidays and I’ve had the good fortune to spend that time relaxing at the beach. For so long I’ve been waiting for some spare time to spend sketching and doodling. I started with nature sketches of all the treasures I found while beach scavenging. The drawings turned out beautifully and I really enjoyed the challenge. My daughter saw me working on my sketches and asked that I draw something for her but something that was “fun like the blank faces coloring page” – definitely my most popular post to date.

I try to keep on the lookout for simple craft ideas I can do with my son, and recently found a few ideas in a book from the Dollar Tree called “Family Fun – Fun for Kids”. You can, of course, also find books at the library with craft ideas like this. Here is our version of some magnetic ‘Robots’ made out of tin cans. Here are the materials that we used: Printable Robot Masks. Transform into cool robots from the future with these awesome printable masks.

DIY Paper Climber. I found these cute climbing toys on Just Deanna, a fun crafty blog.

DIY Paper Climber

These cute little toys work much like the wooden climbers, but are SO easy for kids to create themselves. They are so simple to make and the kids had fun learning how to make them climb and then racing with them. This is a fun toy to make when talking about friction. Materials: sturdy paper.a straw cut into 2 lengths that are each about 2″ long.tape.string or yarn that is cut to about 6′.2 beads for the ends of the string The construction is really simple. Hook your little climbing toy over a door handle or a hook. We did have one of the strings break, I think from the friction. This is a really simple toy to make.
