The rat is 2020's Chinese New Year animal. Today I'm sharing a fun paper cutting craft that celebrates the rat. This project is enough that elementary kids can enjoy the art of paper cutting while also celebrating traditional Chinese culture and the New Year.

Halloween Skull and Ghost Soap Carvings

Looking for a super unique Halloween or Dia de los Muertos craft?  A couple of weeks ago, we tried our hand at designing, carving, and floating Ivory Soap Boats. It was so fun and easy. Ivory soap is the perfect medium for beginning carvers because it is airy and soft. (It's also relatively inexpensive! Bonus!)

Today's sugar skulls and ghosts are a bit more detailed than boats, but the results are so cute. I definitely recommend trying out this soap carving activity with kids of all ages. They are sure to have fun.

Easy DIY Clay Heart Mobile Craft

I love decorating my house with handmade items. Awhile back both my boys were really, really into Sculpey Clay (aff link).  In case you've never used this type of clay before, it's AMAZING! Once the clay is softened, you can basically manipulate it like playdough and then bake it in the oven to set it.  That's it! Super, super easy.

We've shared a ton of Sculpey Clay crafts on the blog over the years and today's heart mobile is one of my favorites! Kids can easily mix colors up to make cool, marble-like effects and then help out with cutting out hearts and stringing the whole mobile up too!
