Cute Popsicle Stick Easter Bunny Craft

When I was a little girl, my mom made this adorable bunny out of popsicle sticks and gave them as gifts to everyone she knew. I know she kept one for herself because my sister found it in her things, and I know she gave one to Old Grandma because she still has hers, too. I imagine that she gave them to my Granny and who knows who else. She was a very generous person. The Easter bunny’s face was attached to a baby food jar, and she kept paper clips and push pins and other small things in hers. … Read more

Easy DIY Duct Tape Binoculars Made from Toilet Paper Tubes

Easy 5-minute Duct Tape Binoculars Made from Toilet Paper Rolls

We made this craft back in January, when we were watching birds at the feeder in front of our living room window. Allie thought it was so cool to have her own binoculars to stare at the birds fifteen feet away. She carried those binoculars around all the time, abusing them as any 3-year-old would. Thanks to the duct tape, they stayed together. They’re still around here somewhere even now, 7 months later. Materials: A heavy pair of scissors Two empty toilet paper tubes A roll or two of fancy duct tape – A note about the tape in the … Read more

Valentine Suncatchers – Easy Tissue Paper Crafts for Kids

Finished suncatchers - Easy Valentine Suncatcher Crafts for Kids

You make a lot of heart crafts when you have two little girls. My girls just love hearts. They draw hearts and they cut hearts and the like to glue and paint hearts. Valentine’s Day is like our crafting heaven. This is the craft that kicked off our Valentine’s Day crafting, and I had actually forgotten all about it until I went looking for something in my photos. I was like, “Hey! Did I post that on my blog?!” and I came looking for it, and lo and behold, I had deprived you of it for a month. Sorry. Anyway, … Read more

Invitation to Craft – Making Valentines

Most of the time, when you make a craft, you start with a project in mind and then work your materials to create it. Right? No creativity is required (unless you designed your craft to begin with, but especially if you are copying a picture in a magazine or on a blog). Sure, you use your scissor skills, and you may notice how the colors are complementary or analogous, but you haven’t exercised your imagination. Sometimes, that’s important. Sometimes, you want to create a mailbox and a certain set of steps are required. You can’t just give your kids a … Read more

3D Paper Snowflakes – Christmas Crafts for Kids

3D Paper Snowflakes - Christmas Crafts for Kids

About a week ago, a man from my church told me that he needed to talk to me. My pastor said, “Run, Tara. Run!” I wasn’t sure if it was a joke, and I was supposed to stay or if he was serious, and I was supposed to run away from what was sure to be a forced volunteering. I stayed. (The pastor told me later, “The next time I tell you to run, run!” So now I know.) Anyway, the man in charge of our annual church banquet asked me to be in charge of decorations for the event. … Read more

Autumn Wreath Craft for Kids (Even Preschoolers!)

Autumn Wreath Craft for Kids (It's easy enough for preschoolers, too!)

I was wondering around the craft store few weeks ago, without my kids (which never happens!), when the fall flowers caught my eye. Each stem was 79¢, 99¢, or $1.29. I bet they’d be even cheaper now being that Thanksgiving merchandise is already on clearance. Because, you know, Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. So anyway, I was there and I thought all the flowers were pretty and that the girls would really like them. I bought an assortment, picked up wreath forms, and went happily home to help the girls make fall wreath crafts. I’m sure this is … Read more
