Make Your Own Trivet
Find a fun way for your child to explore her yard at home or school! In this activity, she'll find all the 7-inch long twigs that are lying around, and then weave them into this useful kitchen stand for hot pots and pans. It makes a great gift for Mom or Dad, and it's a great way to use up those stray fabric scraps, too! This eco-friendly craft does not only benefit the lucky recipient, however; it will do wonders for your child's fine motor skills! Make sure to remind your kid to not pull any branches from a living tree, but instead have her gather only those that have fallen on the ground.
