We love creating here in our house, and sometimes it's helpful to have a good list of ideas to inspire us.
When given the opportunity to check out Project Kid: 100 Ingenious Crafts for Family Fun, I was was pretty sure we'd all love it.
Author Amanda Kingloff currently contributes to FamilyFun, Parents, Women's Day, All You, Parent & Child, and HGTV Magazine, among others. She says "This book teaches kids that objects they interact with every day, from the yarn pom-pom on their winter hats to mosaic tile on the shower wall, can be handmade." What's better than watching your kids get excited about something they've made, or seeing them make new connections in the world around them?
I let the kids look through the whole book to pick something to do first. It was perfect for our week of Spring Break!
They voted on some colorful butterflies. After quick trips to the craft store and hardware store we had all of our supplies.
The kids loved their painted butterflies!
We can't wait to work on more of the ideas in the book. It will be great for summer vacation, and maybe even craft camp. Where are your favorite places to find kid's craft ideas?
