Paint Bag Writing Tablet - Put some finger paint or tempera paint into a sturdy freezer ziploc bag. Seal it well and smoosh the paint around the entire bag. Children can practice writing letters or sight words.
craft idea for kids- monster pet rocks. Pre-paint rocks and they can draw faces. I have a lot of googly eyes I can bring in. This can be a cheap project. Maybe high school kids can paint the rocks. Maybe use half Easter eggs if short on rocks?
