If you’re in my same boat, crafty DIY site WhipUp.net has a cool solution.
The inaugural issue of the Action Pack Mini-Mag
is all about paper and beeswax, with instructions for making origami
boats (dipped in beeswax so they really float), beeswax candles and lip
balm with printable labels, plus how-to steps for drawing bees, and some
kid-friendly recipes using honey. Of course, some activities will
require a little adult supervision, but for the most part this is cool
stuff that kids over six can do themselves.
Download the 22-page
PDF and print it out — or better yet, be green and read it directly
from your laptop or iPad. It’s not free, but for me $5 is a small price
to pay for a few buzzworthy projects to curb the boredom. -Julie
