St. Patrick’s Day Fun: Edible Crafts

St. Patrick’s Day is a fun day for all kids, you do not even need to be Irish. You can enjoy the fun of the holiday with a little it of crafts and a little bit of snacks. All you need is some cereal, some marshmallows, and a little leprechaun to help you out.

Thank you to Jonesing to Create for such a fun idea. This little rainbow cloud craft is not only simple and fun, it can also be quite delicious as well. After all, who doesn’t love a craft that you can eat when you are finished? Isn’t that why Gingerbread houses are so popular at Christmas time? Think of these sweet little rainbow clouds as the Irish version of a gingerbread house.

The tutorial is very simple, which makes this an excellent craft for kids of any age. It can even be great for toddlers and will help them with their fine motor skills since they will need to thread cereal to make it work.

We love this craft because the kids enjoy making things, and we all enjoy looking at their creations. But things can get crowded around here with so many art projects. This art project is great because we build it, we take a couple of pictures and enjoy it, then we eat it! No clean up required! Those are my favorite kinds of crafts!

Head on over to Jonesing to Create for the full tutorial and some other fun ideas that will last all year long.

Heart Hedgehog Craft

I love a good holiday craft. Raise your hand if you are one of those moms that decorate for every holiday. GUILTY! I love to see the decorations and feel a little uplifted by the sweet colors and cheery appearance.

I especially love it when my kids’ art crafts are displayed for the holiday season. I love to look at their little crafts and remember the day we made them, how old they were, and see how much they have grown.

I try to do crafts with my kids at home. Even if it is only something small. For Valentine’s Day this year I wanted to do something different. Not the routine heart designs. That is when I happened upon this adorable Heart Hedgehog craft. It has the traditional heart and colors of Valentine’s day, but the little hedgehog is just so darling I couldn’t stand it — I just had to have it.
