How to make necklaces and bracelets with kids

Ever try making jewelry with kids?  We've dabbled a bit, but honestly, I've always been kind of overwhelmed by beading. It's one thing to string on some pony beads, but we've never tried adding on clasps or *gasp* crimping anything. The crafty folks at Dragonfly Designs sent me one of their DIY jewelry making kits to review... and let me tell you, the kids and I HAD A BLAST! (And we finally learned how to make real jewelry!)

Origami Fox Finger Puppets (And 9 Fun Fox books!)

Are foxes the unofficial animals for fall? I'm not sure, but I feel like I see foxes and owls EVERYWHERE. I'm jumping on the trend (late, as usual) with today's fox-themed finger puppets. It's an easy and cute origami project that the kids can play with once they're done crafting. (And keep reading to the end to get a list of our favorite fox-themed books too!)

Carving Ivory Soap Boats

Did you know you can carve boats from soap?  

Last week during an impromptu playdate, we tried our hand at carving Ivory Soap Boats. This was such an affordable, easy and fun activity that kept two 3rd graders engaged for about 1/2 an hour!
