How to Fold Origami Paper Claws

Ever think about making paper claws? Do you have a kid who loves Wolverine, cats, or monsters?  Then today's origami craft is for you!  We're taking a short departure from my typical uber-cute and colorful origami projects for some more ferocious ones.  RAWR! As a mom of two boys, our home is constantly the sight of roughhousing.   Both had a blast pretend fighting* with these easy-to-fold claws.  So grab two sheets of paper and let's get folding! 

 (*And let's be honest, real fighting too... ack!  Summertime shenanigans currently abound over here...)

Faux Henna Tattoos for Kids

Have you ever heard about Henna tattoos? These are beautiful temporary tattoos that people around the world apply during certain celebrations or rites of passage.  (You can read more about  Henna tattoos here.)  Years ago, I attended a Mehendi Ceremony and completely fell in love with all the beautiful designs that the artist applied to our hands. That was the first (and sadly the last time) I ever got Henna done.  Today's post is an attempt to recreate the beautiful details of the Henna tattoo... in a very kid-friendly way!

(Kids can draw them + they're completely washable too!)

Christmas Word Doodle Art Challenges! (Free Printable included!)

The countdown to Christmas is on!  I love this season and usually share tons of easy Christmas activities and crafts.  But this year it's been tough getting into the Christmas spirit.  With all the wildfires in California, we've been more somber and going slightly stir-crazy staying inside.  (The smoke is pretty bad.)  So today I'm sharing an activity that we recently did.  This fun, no-prep, and creative Christmas activity helped us to pass the time while stuck indoors.

Word Doodle Art Challenge: Can you transform words into pictures?

If you've been on my facebook page lately, you'll see that I really enjoy sharing videos of people doing creative things.   (I love getting inspired!)  Recently, I shared this super neat video of an artist transforming words like "unicorn," "cat," and "fish" into pictures.  My son and I enjoyed watching that video so much that I made some more "word doodle sheets" for us to try out together!

MAGIC Color Transfer Art!

Did you ever play with carbon paper as a kid?  (Hmm... have I just seriously dated myself here?)  I LOVED that stuff.  You stuck it behind a sheet of blank paper, went to town doodling, lifted up your carbon paper and then ooh la la!  Instant copy.  So, so cool.  Today I'm sharing an easy and fun art activity that hearkens back to good old carbon paper.  We're making ourselves some colorful, color transfer art!  (It's like making your very own rainbow carbon transfer paper!)
