Back in the old days of my blog, I wrote frequently about homeschooling, crafts, and activities to do with your kids. In the past couple of years, I have pivoted somewhat and now write much more on physical and mental health, but that does not mean I no longer homeschool (I do) or craft (I do) or do lots of fun activities with my kids (I do that too). It just means that I haven’t been talking about it as much here. Last year, in the spring, I made these fun sun catchers with the girls on Easter weekend, took … 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

Cross Resist Paintings for Preschoolers and Big Kids

How to do Cross Resist Paintings for Easter or any time of year

This is one of those projects that I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. We tried some resist painting using stickers a few months ago. It went well at first, but the stickers got too wet and let behind half of the sticker paper on the canvas. Someday, I’ll blog those pictures. The finished paintings look great, but the process was more difficult than I expected. Because we were making crosses this time (for Easter but really, is there a time of year when the cross is not timely and relevant?), I knew painter’s tape would work out … 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
