Crafty DIY: Sunflower Plates

I don’t know about you, but we have a lot of summer days that are just too hot for us to be outdoors. On those days we sometimes enjoy staying indoors and creating arts and crafts projects in the nice comfortable air conditioned house.

This fun project still makes us feel a if we are enjoying nature with its beautiful sunflower theme. Thank you to The Resourceful Mama for a great indoor project that still beckons us to the sweetness that is summer.

Sunflowers are a great part of summer. Here they grow wild in fields, but you can also plant them at home and see them bloom in your very own garden.

This craft is very simple to follow and brings those beautiful summer blooms indoors. Head on over to  The Resourceful Mama for a great tutorial.

DIY: Fidget Spinners

Fidget Spinners are all the rage right now. But what about creating your own Fidget Spinner at home? All you need is a little bit of help from one of our favorite Mommy bloggers, Sarah at Frugal Fun 4 Boys.

Sarah is always finding awesome ideas for her boys. We have highlighted her so much we think of her as one of our friends. She knows what boys like, and she knows how to keep them busy. Legos are such great fun for young boys, but they are also incredibly educational. So it is no surprise that she has found a way to combine them with the latest craze of Fidget Spinners.

Fidget Spinners are incredibly cool and fun gadgets that boys and girls are going crazy over. Originally created to help children with ADD, ADHD, And Autism, they help busy kids stay on task while still being able to fidget, move, and act.

This fun adaptation in Lego form is so neat and so creative we just had to share it. Fidget Spinners are great for any age and any child, so feel free to share with all of your friends.

Head on over to Frugal Fun 4 Boys to get the full tutorial, and make sure you have a good supply of Legos for the materials needed. Then enjoy your little spinner all day long!
