I thought I would post a couple of the little crafts we’ve done – some easy stuff that your kids can do on their own for the most part!

1. This was a Valentine’s Day craft. Nice and easy but she sure loved the hearts!

2. Dragons! Who doesn’t love dragons! Want to try it? https://www.homelovr.com/toilet-paper-roll-crafts-for-kids/ (this link has lots of other toilet paper roll crafts too!)



3. Squids! We didn’t have any yarn so we improvised with ribbon. Want to try it? http://momskitchenandthings.com/2017/06/26/toilet-paper-roll-squid-craft-for-kids/

4. Monsters & Butterflies! This was one of our first craft days actually! We had gone out and bought a bunch of supplies & containers – so of course Nova wanted to go craft crazy! The monster one we found on Pinterest, and the butterflies Nova came up with all on her own!

TIP: For the butterflies/dragonflies, we use clothes pins now. Works way better! http://www.craftymorning.com/how-to-make-clothespin-dragonflies-kids-craft/

5. Easter Eggs! We did this to decorate our front door for Easter, but you could make these any time of the year! I just googled some print outs for Nova to color and paint and we made a basket out of paper by weaving!

TIP: I made my own dotters with pom poms and clothes pins – but bingo dotters would be way easier! We just didn’t have any at the time.



6. Bird Feeders. Nova wanted to buy one every time we went to the store, but they are wicked expensive so we bought a $3 bag of bird seed and made our own instead!

Nova called this one Frankenstein!
