Chinese New Year Pig Watercolor Paintings

Did you know that this Chinese New Year is the year of the pig?  A couple of nights ago my boys and I began making our annual Chinese New Year Crafts together.  One of my good friends is an art teacher and she painted some lovely pigs with her students.  I loved her idea so much that I wanted to try the activity out with my two boys too.  (Thanks, Alicia for the awesome idea!!!!)

Tada!  We all had fun trying our hand at painting some watercolor pigs for Chinese New Year!

Fa La La Llama Paper Snowflakes

Are you ready to make the cutest llama winter craft ever?

Ahhhh!  I introduce to you this llama snowflake design!  Ok, ok.  I've gone kinda bonkers with paper snowflake crafts.  But I can't help it... I  just looooove them so much.   And we don't get snow here in southern California.... so I have to make do with these paper flakes.

 Today's paper snowflake design is sooo cute and quite possibly my favorite-ist design of all time.  (Don't tell my other designs.)   (And can we talk about my word choice here?  Favorite-ist?  Well, it's not a real word, but it gets at the heart of things. I just really love cute paper crafts.)

Handprint Christmas Peace Dove Art

It's time to start making Christmas crafts! Yesterday we put up the tree and it was so, so sweet to see my preschooler oohing and ahhing over the lights.  Today I tried to keep the Christmas-y momentum going with this super easy paper plate dove craft.  Inspired by Imagination Tree's sweet dove handprint keepsake, we made our own version using paper plates instead of salt dough.  (Anna's craft is really, really lovely, so definitely check out the post for another fun idea.)

Easy Stuffed Owl Craft for Kids

I'm not sure why, but when I think of fall crafts for kids, I think of owls.  My littlest guy has just entered that sweet age where he seems to enjoy drawing, cutting, and gluing.  It's fun for me because now we can start our own crafting journey together.  Our first craft of the school year was this adorable stuffed owl.  My little guy really loved making it and proudly proclaimed "I love it.  It is so cute" when he finished.
