This cool craft is super easy and perfect for kids who love to doodle.

Free 3D Minecraft Paper Doll Printables

Do your kids love Minecraft? My two boys simply adore the game and we've made tons of Minecraft crafts this past year. When my eldest made a cute 3D paper Steve from Paper Pixelcraft my younger son wanted a paper doll too, but there were just too many parts for him to cut out and fold. So I ended up simplifying the doll design and leaving it blank so that he could draw in his own details. Since both boys enjoyed making these simpler Minecraft paper dolls, I figured I'd share the designs here too.

Ready to color, cut, fold, tape, and play?

DIY Pressed Flowers in a Floating Glass Frame Craft

 I love seeing the pretty flowers on our neighborhood walks and hikes, don't you? Maybe that's why I adore making pressed flower crafts. This past month we've made pressed flower wooden trays and moon and star contact paper suncatchers. And today I'll share some lovely pressed flower glass frames that the boys and I made. These came out so pretty, I think they'd be perfect to keep, or give away to someone special.
