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.

Olympics Craft: Olympic Torch

The 2018 Winter Olympics have begun! This year’s Olympic Games is being held in PyeongChang, Korea.  The city will host Alpine Skiing, Bobsleighing, Cross-Country Skiing, Curling, Figure Skating, Freestyle Skiing, Ice Hockey, Luge, Nordic Combined, Short Track Speed Skating, Skeleton, Ski Jumping, Snowboarding, and Speed Skating.

 The Olympics are such a fun event to watch on television. One of my favorite parts of the Olympics is the opening and closing ceremonies. So much goes into planning and creating the displays and parades that open and close the festivities. One of the great parts of the opening is the lighting and the running of the Olympic Torch. It travels to the Olympics in such a grand ceremony that it makes an incredible display.

 Since the torch is such an important part of the opening ceremony we thought it would be fun to let the kids create their own Olympic torch at home. Thank you to Classy Mommy for such a fun and simple craft.

 Classy Mommy has a very simple tutorial that will make it easy and fun to build your own Olympic torch at home. So head on over now to follow along. And be sure to check out all the other fun ideas she has for crafts and activities at home.

Valentine’s Day Crafts

This month we celebrate the day of love. We can love so many ways in this life. We have hearts that can grow with love every day. A heart never stops growing, there is room for so much love. In my life alone I love my mom, my dad, my brothers, my sisters, my husband, my daughter, my sons, my dogs, my best friends. Love is endless.

Love can be expressed in so many ways. It doesn’t always have to be with money. During the holidays we can get caught up with spending money to show our love and appreciation. But our love can be shown through acts of love as well. I adore when my husband does things for me around the house, I adore when my daughter helps take care of her younger brother, and I love when they work on things together to make me smile.

Valentine's day crafts

This heart string craft is the perfect craft for valentines day. It is simple, fun, and it embodies love. It does require nails and a hammer, so a parent may want to help with this craft. But once the nails are set the string is very fun to assemble.

Thank you to Reality DayDream for the simple beginner string craft. Be sure to head over to Reality DayDream and see all of the other fun crafts you can try at home. We promise you will LOVE it.
