Summer Fun for Kids from Crayon Box Chronicles


Heather of Crayon Box Chronicles beautiful baby girl Savannah Hope was born earlier this month, after two in-utero surgeries. She has had a third surgery since birth for CDH, and she and her family are taking life one day at time. I’m joining a group of bloggers who are showing support through donations, fundraising, and by highlighting Heather’s blog. Crayon Box Chronicles is a delightful, sensory-rich blog featuring art and play-based learning for little ones. I have highlighted three of my favorite posts from her blog below, and hope you will drop by her blog, and, if you can, add a donation to the Prayers for Savannah Hope Fund.

DIY geoboards are all over the blogosphere, but I love Heather’s use of fabric loops instead of your classic rubber bands – much gentler for little hands! She has also written up a very easy to follow DIY geoboard tutorial.

Foil painting is another activity I have seen quite a bit online, but Heather shares a secret tip for getting the paint to stay put – using a very common household item! Click through to her foil painting post to find out what it is!

Once again, Heather takes a classic activity and gives it a fun twist using a delightful range of sensory materials! Her rainbow sensory collage printable is pretty cute, too!
