    We Do Things a Little Differently Here

    Spending time with your kids should be fun, relaxed, simple and stress-free.  After all, we all want to limit screen time and make more opportunities for hands on learning and fun, but there’s only so much time in the day.  You are busy!  (I get it!)  So, we’ve taken away the obstacles that are in your way of crafting with your kids by doing more with less and making every single amazing craft on this site and in our kids’ crafts ebooks from a master list of craft supplies, just 27 inexpensive supplies, that fits into one bag.  All you have to do is keep it stocked, like a pantry.  Prep once (fill the bag), and let me do all the hard work of coming up with fun craft ideas for you to make together as a family.  Then any time you have a minute in your day, a hands-on activity is ready to go.  What are you waiting for?  Fill that bag now!  It’s time to craft some memories.  Get the FREE printable supply list or use the Amazon links below to just fill your cart and go on with your day.

    And Now for the Amazon Affiliate Links...

    You may choose to just go to your local Dollar General, Walmart, Michael's or wherever to obtain these supplies. Be sure to shop your home first since you probably have lots of this stuff already. Just bring it together in one place. If you are an Amazon girl, like me, here are some links that you can use to quickly fill your bag. Just a few clicks, and you will be ready to go!
