    After cutting the foam into smaller pieces, it's up to your 4 year old to create a masterpiece. All they have to do is attach the pieces to a larger piece of cardboard. The Craft Train suggests mixing paint with the glue you use to adhere the foam pieces to the cardboard piece.

    You can actually do this every year as Mama Papa Bubba suggests. It's a great way to track your child's growth and also do a fun craft. What 4 year old doesn't love getting a little messy?

    Bubble Painting

    Dish soap, food coloring, a piece of paper, and a straw are all you need for this craft from Housing a Forest. Have your kids blow the bubbles and simply lay the piece of paper onto them so the paper absorbs the food coloring.
