More fast crafts, projects, and activities for another book from Sonlight’s HBL K program. Organized by chapter.
Chapter 1: The Cottage by the Sea
Using scraps of colored paper and random art supplies from around the house, create a picture of your favorite pet (or stuffed animal).
Build your own kite
Chapter 2: The Dog from the Sea

Try rock painting or have your child gather some small pebbles (marbles, polished stones, etc) and make pictures and patterns with them.
