    Rainbow Mask Kids’ Craft

    Playing dress up is one of the many wonders of childhood.  As a matter of fact, my youngest son wore his Spider Man costume for an entire year, really!  He only stopped wearing it because all the seams were ripping out and the legs up to his knees (plus I threw it away while he was sleeping. Hey, a mom has to do what a mom has to do).   Aren't there days when you just want to be someone else for a little while.  This rainbow mask kids' craft is a fun addition to any costume or enough to just wear on its own.  How could anyone be sad while they have something like this on THEY CAN'T!  SUPPLIES FROM THE BAG Paper plate (9 inch coated)2 pipe cleanersScissorsBlack Sharpie marker4 colors of medium sized pompoms (mine took 17 for the biggest row) Elmer's glueCotton ballsHole punch In case you...

    2 Rocking Birds Kids’ Crafts

    I was inspired by a project that I saw recently from Crafty Morning. Her sweet little love bird was so adorable, and my creative brain went into high gear. I wanted to take that cute little bird and kick it up a notch. Not only is it fun to make the craft, but it is even more fun if you can play with it afterward. Even better, if it can be used with other toys or made to be part of a story. With that in mind, I took that cute little love bird and made it into 2 rockin' chicks. This just required a couple of little tweeks, and (don't worry) I will hold your hand through the process. You will love these rocking birds kids crafts and want to make more. Use your imagination and design your own...
