I don't know if you have time to take them for walks outside, but if you do, you could give them each a small bag. Let them get grass, leaves, dirt, small stones, feathers if they find them. Then they can create a picture of your walk. Using some sort of card board (torn up cereal box? something like that) they could finger paint the background then glue on their finds.
You could also give them each a sheet of address lable paper, like you use in a printer, and let them make their own stickers.
I used to home school my kids, a very long time ago. I'll try to remember some of the other stuff we did.
When my daughter started sewing she used some old curtains and clothes to make pillows. That's how she learned to sew a straight line. She re-uses all my old clothes and her old clothes and makes shirts and those little skirts that you wear over your pants.
Yard sales and thrift stores are cheap places to get curtains and clothes that you can salvage the clothe from to use while you are learning. Good luck!
I love these stories! I do crazy quilting and crochet and my cat is always chasing the yarn , or the thread or attacking the needles. My oldest cat (George or fat cat) loves to eat plastic and lay on paper. My daughter draws alot and he is always laying on her paper when he thinks she has drawn enough and should pet him.
The newset cat (Seshey) likes to leave little things in my shoes. Usually the pull thing off a milk carton cap, but anything small and hard will do.
I have a craft room now, so I don't know how Seshey would react to my crafts, I don't let them in.
Dooney, my grandson (pictured in my avatar) was born the same day. He is the light of my life
