We love to craft with recycled materials. They are some of our favorite supplies. And they are cheap, pretty much anything we are done with using from a box, can, or paper tube! That’s what we are talking about in today’s video for our Kids in the Craft Room series. There are so many fun […]

We are getting better at sewing and it’s time for a little more difficult project, although it is still easy enough for a beginner. We’ve sewn a fabric bookmark, a t-shirt bag, and now we’re sewing up a cute little drawstring bag. It’s perfect for all your little charms or marbles to fit inside. My […]

Now that we’ve done a little practicing by making a fabric bookmark, my son is ready for our next project: Sewing a T-shirt Bag. This is probably the easiest project out there. All you do is sew one long line. That’s it! And it makes such a fun and functional piece. The best part is you don’t […]

My son has been begging me to let him sew on my sewing machine ever since he was little. There’s something about that needle and thread and the fast whizzing sound of the machine. But I’ve been hesitant to do it, thinking he’s not old enough, the “mom” in me being overly protective. Now that he’s […]

How often do you join in when your kids are creating? Doodle Names is a drawing project that parents and kids can enjoy working on side-by-side.

We talked about our favorite kid craft supplies and our favorite kid friendly adhesives. Now here’s how we store them. Thanks again to ConsumerCrafts.com for sponsoring this […]

This cute little caterpillar was just begging to be stitched onto a card! I love to stitch greeting cards, so I thought I’d try my hand at adding a few beads to the mix. I think this little guy turned out perfect. He’s ready to display or be gifted to someone for spring! Supplies for […]

Usually paper and scissors go hand-in-hand, but not for this project. We’re tearing paper and layering the pieces to make colorful landscapes. Each one turns out completely unique and beautiful, and all you need is paper and a glue stick. Choose a background paper and tear a strip from your first color. Leaving some paper […]

When we think of spring we think of new life and nature. On the farm there’s all sorts of new life in the spring. Baby chicks are hatching, piglets are born, calves are by their mama’s sides and cute farm babies are abundant. Children love farm animals, so why not put together these craft stick […]

Do you know much about the Kiwi bird? I didn’t either. But, my son could tell you almost everything since it was his 3rd grade report! It’s a native of New Zealand, is as big as a chicken, has a really long thin beak and is the color of the kiwi fruit. Here’s my son’s […]

We like to try making origami from time to time, but we’re definitely still beginners. With only a few simple folds to make, these origami picture frames are a perfect project for kids (and beginner grown-ups, too!). Plus, these little frames make great displays for around the house or to give as gifts. Supplies for […]
