Accordion Folded Flowers

Spring is definitely in our neck of the woods.  And that means two things:  flowers and parties. Yup!  The flowers have gone gangbusters and we've celebrated tons of friends' birthdays in the past two months.   I think that's why I felt inspired to make today's super nifty flower craft.  These accordion folded flowers are such a nice way to bring the loveliness of Spring indoors.  They'll look great adorning your home or as pretty party decorations too!

Window process art (and our favorite 25+ art books!)

There is something about process art that really appeals to me.  When my son and I are free to just explore materials, there's more room to be creative (and a whole lot less pressure on both of us to make things "look right.")  We get to explore, create, and talk with each other.  Now, I will always love cute kids' crafts.  (Googly eyes and glitter will always hold a special place in my heart!) But lately I've just had enough time (and energy) to put out open-ended projects for us to do.

Here's a recent window process art activity that we recently did together...

Shiny Art Necklaces

These shiny aluminum art necklaces contain everything that I love about kids craft all rolled into a single craft.  They allow kids to freely create art without worrying about making things "right" or "perfect."  They're super easy to make. (My preschooler didn't need help at all!) And they use everyday materials.  (Fancy-shmancy materials aren't needed!)  Annnd... the resulting craft looks pretty smashing, wouldn't you say?

Easter Egg Printing

I've been wanting to to try printmaking with my preschooler for awhile now.  After seeing this great  Easter Egg Printing post from The Artful Parent, I thought I'd give styrofoam printing a try.  Styrofoam printing is cheap and doesn't (really) need any special materials.   Sounds great, right?   Today's Easter craft is making these neat Easter Egg Prints with your kiddos.

Egg-cellent Easter Egg Printing!

20+ Colorful, Rainbow Inspired Activities and Crafts (and books!)

Feeling colorful lately?  Looking for fun and easy rainbow themed crafts and activities?  Or maybe you're just starting to peek around for St. Patrick's Day Crafts?

I've currently got rainbows on my mind.  But, with a new baby at home, we've kinda been in survival mode (aka, crafting... and sleep happen pretty infrequently...)  So, while we adjust to this new norm, I thought I'd comb through the blog's archives to create a roundup of 20+  colorful activities and crafts.
Hope you have fun and get inspired by the posts below!

Paper Blossoms for Chinese New Year

The quest for easy Chinese New Year Crafts continues!  I've been reading up a bit on the holiday to help me explain it to my older son.  Recently I learned that we often see plum blossom flowers decorating homes around this time of year.  Apparently they represent perseverance, courage, and reliability.  (Beautiful, right?)  Well, we don't have any plum blossom flowers around here.... but we do have pink tissue paper and twigs.  So we grabbed our crafting materials and then set to making ourselves some really easy and beautiful flower decorations for the New Year!
