How to Make Best Friend Clay Necklaces

Did you own a best friend necklace as a kid?  One of my friends recently bought a pair for her daughter and best friend.  (They were groovy mood ones.  Girls' jewelry has definitely gotten cuter since I was a kid.)  I was so inspired by the cute necklaces that my son and I made our own clay friendship necklaces.  Aren't they fun?

(And even though these were made for friends, this would be a great gift to make for Mother's Day or Valentine's Day too!)

How to Make Origami Snails

Here's a super quick and easy origami craft that's perfect for spring or summer!  Lately, we've been bitten by the gardening bug.  My youngest and I keep sticking things into the dirt to see if they'll grow.  My oldest is not as keen on gardening as we are, but he loves folding origami.  So today I'm sharing how to fold these really easy and fun origami snails.

Gorgeous "Painted" Oil Pastel Crystal Sun catchers

Have you ever tried "painting" with oil pastels?  Every so often I feel all artsy-smartsy and pull out my big 'ol box of oil pastels and do an easy oil pastel craft with my kids.  This past week I felt the urge and we made these crystal suncatchers by "painting" with oil pastels.  The results were pretty gorgeous and the process was fun too!

Painting with Dandelions



One of our favorite Spring crafts is painting with dandelions.   Dandelions are such a funny flower because every kid loves them, but every home-owning adult seems to despise them.  We don't really have a front yard, so I personally adore them.  My youngest and I recently spent one morning picking the yellow flowers and blowing the seeds around (sorry, neighbors!)  Awhile back, I shared how we turn dandelions into dandelion chains and crowns.  Today, I'm sharing another fun craft to do with the yellow flowers- paint with them!

Smiley Sun Popsicle Stick Weaving

Sometimes it feels like we go in craft cycles.  Before, my son and I were really, really into origami projects. Now I'm starting to dream about doing more weaving projects.  There's something really beautiful and relaxing about the process of weaving.  There's a lovely pattern of movement and you always seems to get beautiful results. 

So, in celebration of the sunny and warm weather, I recently made this really cute smiley sun popsicle stick weaving.   If you enjoy weaving God's Eyes, you'll really enjoy this craft too!

Easy Printmaking Project for Kiddos: Colorful Initials!

Howdy friends! Today I wanted to just pop in and share this colorful, kid-friendly printmaking project.  I know, it's been awhile since I've shared a printing project here. (I've been shying away from messier projects lately because my youngest has now entered the VERY precocious and active toddler years. Ahhh! )  But, I recently took a printmaking course and was enamored with the whole process.... so I had to try out the process with my eldest.

Rainbow Snowflake Cutouts

Bet you read the title and thought... what?  Rainbow snowflakes?  Well, I had a tough time figuring what to name this rainbow craft.  Is it a snowflake craft?  Is it considered kirigami?  I'm not sure. All I know is that it's a cute and fun paper cutting craft for rainbow-loving kids to try out.
