When Big Sister was much smaller, she loved a lot of things, but most of all she loved (not including her family of course) Elmo and Sprout's "The Good Night Show" with Star and Nina. It makes me very sad to think that a) she has lost interest (mostly) in Elmo and b) that we don't get Sprout with our new cable provider. Baby Genius will have to love it online.
But... we did a craft for my husband's birthday and I found the instructions on The Good Night Show website! And bonus, there's a great list of other crafts to do with young 'uns! Click here for a link to a very easy Stained Glass jar craft from Nina and Star. (Note: the picture isn't of the one we did but it looked very similar.)
Big Sister and I had several suggestions/variations:
1) In the spirit of Reuse/Recycle, we used a clean baby food jar! It's a great size for something like holding a tea light, spare change in the laundry room, paper clips on a desk, etc.
2) We did a 1/2, 1/2 water and glue mixture... it was easier for Big Sister to "paint" on the jar.
