Crafting for those with visual perceptual issues…

I struggle sometimes with kindergarten crafts.  For example, we made this turtle one time.  Now, I don’t remember exactly what the situation was, but I know the kids I “helped” had turtles that turned out a little different from the other students.  Other challenges include making those fancy smancy criss cross pies (name?  lattice pies?).  I had a particular occasion when I messed up the pattern, and my sister had to stand there and tell me “over…under…over.”  I’m not the most artsy, craft-oriented person.  Every once in a while I punish challenge myself and take on a little craft project.  This is what I’ve been up to lately…

This was a salvaged frame from Goodwill about 3 bucks, sanded, and repainted. Then, I just got colored paper and printed out what I wanted it to say.

What a mess! That’s the problem with crafting. These are delicious. Just a 16 oz bag of pretzels, 2/3 cup of vegetable oil (I tried coconut oil this time…not as good!), 1/2 cup of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes stirring twice in 300 degree over. Presto!

Basically, these were all pretty simplistic crafts.  That’s certainly the best kind.  🙂  Have a happy weekend.  Here’s a H picture to start it off right!

  1. Oh those kindergarten crafts… I usually ended up gluing my fingers to the paper instead of the foam animals we were supposed to be using! And forget coloring inside the lines… I could never be a kindergarten teacher; it requires way more talent and coordination than I have!

  3. Hello there! This article couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept preaching about this.
    I will send this article to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a very good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!
