My Mental Block

I always feel like I should be doing lots of crafty little things with the kids, especially Sophia who is home with me all the time. But I have had this block against doing so for the longest time, and I know why: I hate crap. I hate making things just for the sake of making them, when they are not useful and functional and cannot be kept for long periods of time. What is the point of making some paper thing or some thing that is just going to be torn up and recycled in two days? I'd rather make stuff with the kids that can actually be used, like Christmas ornaments or something.

So if anyone has any suggestions for such a toddler-friendly activity, please do let me know! I know she would enjoy it, and I would feel so much more like participating.
