Button Wreath Craft for Preschoolers

Aren’t these cute? I love button crafts, and there is no finer button craft than a little wreath. These are so easy to make that we were finished and had the glue gun put away in under ten minutes. The hardest part is gathering the materials and finding the right buttons, which is why I bought kits for these at Oriental Trading. Everything came prepackaged in little baggies with just the right amount of each color and even a little bow already pre-tied Perfect. So I’m going to give you instructions to make these, but know that gathering all these … Read more

Easy Popsicle Stick Snowflake Ornaments for Preschoolers

We’ve been crafting so much that my glue gun caught on fire. For real. I had to throw it out after flames shot out of it and it set off the smoke detector. Okay, not really about the smoke detector, but everything else is true. I love crafting with my kids. I feel the same way about crafting with them that I feel about cooking with them. I absolutely positively love doing it. Except for the mess they make. I could do without that. But anyway. I sat down one Saturday afternoon while the girls were playing Barbies, and I … Read more

Pine Cone Bird Feeder Craft

When I was a little girl, my mom had a red plastic bird feeder that she kept full of bird seed all winter long. She hung it in the large bush adjacent to our living room window, and all we had to do to watch the birds was sit down on the couch. I remember sitting there for hours, counting cardinals and identifying other birds as they made tiny footprints in the snow. A few years ago, we got an awesome squirrel-proof bird feeder, and Joe erected a twelve-foot pole in our front yard so that I could see it … Read more

Lamb of God – Sheep Craft for Preschoolers and Older Kids

Lamb of God - Sheep craft for preschoolers and older kids

The next day John [the Baptist] saw Jesus coming toward him and said, – Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” – John 1:29 NLT I like sheep and lambs. I think they’re cute, and they’re synonymous with spring, which has been sorely lacking in my part of the world this year (until this week, that is). Having seen lots of cute lamb and sheep crafts on Pinterest recently, I came up with a little lamb project for my girls to do. I had intended to write Lamb of God on their pink hearts and … Read more

Washi Tape Christmas Tree Craft for Kids

Are your kids obsessed with tape? Mine are, and they have been since they were old enough to know the word. Can I have a piece of tape? Please? Tape pleeeeeease? It’s like tape is something akin to candy, and my kids can’t get enough. Enter the washi tape craft. The best thing about this craft is that it takes the kids about 10 minutes to put together from start to finish, so it is great for a young preschooler to take on. Because the washi tape can be put on as carefully – or as wantonly – as the … Read more

An Island Grows Book and Volcanic Island Craft

Wouldn’t your kids love to make a volcanic island? It’s a super fun and easy activity that you will all enjoy. Our volcanic island craft began with the Love Books summer book exchange. This was our second year participating in the book exchange; last year we exchanged with 3 Dinosaurs and received The Rainbow Fish book and activities to go with it. I forgot to take a picture of the box, but it arrived beautifully decorated with beaches and islands. You can head over to Capri + 3 to see it before it was mailed. Inside the package was a book … Read more
