Buckeye Caterpillar Craft

Good morning! I am soooo behind on posts here. I literally have 2 months worth of crafts and printables backed up. We visted my family for the whole MONTH of June and we didn’t stop the craftiness. I’ll try to keep the posts coming regularly, so keep an eye out! (You can ‘like’ our Facebook […]

Buckeye Butterfly Printable Craft

buckeyebutterfly

Last year, we went on a realistic butterfly kick and made the following crafts: Blue Morpho | Tiger Swallowtail | Monarch | Painted Lady. Since it had been so long since our last, I decided to make a few more templates, this being one of them. Buckeye Butterflies are very beautiful, with large circular spots […]

Squid Printable Craft

We seem to be on a sea animal trend lately! I’ve recently posted a hermit crab, a crab, and a lobster. Lorelai used to be TERRIFIED of squids, but she was all giggles when making this one (she thought it looked funny). You can print the free template below! Printable Instructions | Terms of Use […]

Hermit Crab Printable Craft

Summer is well underway in the U.S. right now, and what better crafts to make than cute little sea critters? Recently, we have also made a crab, a lobster, and a squid. My six-year-old daughter also made this cute hermit crab. You can grab the free printable template below. Enjoy!   Printable Instructions | Terms […]

Painting with Squash

Making art and painting with alternative paintbrushes is always a fun venture. In the past, we have used evergreen leaves, flowers, celery, and even spaghetti – and it was all very well received. Of course, my daughter isn’t one to shy away from getting her hands dirty – in fact, the messier it is, the […]

Lobster Printable Craft

Last week I posted this Printable Crab Craft that Lorelai made at the same time as this lobster. It’s quite a bit of cutting with all of the little legs, but it’s a good project for a rainy day this summer. =) Print below and enjoy!   Printable Instructions | Terms of Use | Facebook […]

A-Z Nature Crafts & Activities

aznaturecrafts

My daughter has always enjoyed being outdoors, so it came naturally for her to love doing nature crafts. From fun collages she put together with the bits of leaves and acorns she found on our walks, to printable nature-related crafts… she loves it all! I decided to put together an A-Z list of crafts we […]

Zinnia Printable Craft

zinnia

I know, a zinnia seems like a pretty random thing to design a craft of, but there is a reason behind it. I was looking for a plant with the letter “Z” and my mom suggested this one. Zinnias are such beautiful flowers with many, many petals. The printable I made is very basic – […]

Stargazer Lily Printable Craft

Stargazer Lillies are such beautiful flowers! A few weeks ago, I posted a printable Iris and Daffodil, and designed this lily. My daughter had fun trying to make the flower look just like a stargazer… I think she did a great job! You can find all of our other flower crafts in our Flower & […]

Gorilla Printable Craft

Good morning, crafty folks! Today I’m sharing this gorilla craft that my six-year-old painted yesterday. I love how she used her watercolor paints here to blend the blue, purple, and black paints together. She made this cartoon gorilla craft a few years ago, so we were due for a newer, more realistic one. Print below […]

Howler Monkey Printable Craft

How about this Howler Monkey Craft? We have made several monkey crafts in the past — Monkey, Circus Monkey, Paper Plate Monkey, Orangutan Craft — but never a howler monkey. My six-year-old really loved this one. She did notice that he only has 3 legs, and I explained it’s because of the angle of the […]

Printable Watering Can Craft

Gardening and watering flowers is something my daughter absolutely loves to do. It came as no surprise when she asked for a watering can craft template. She chose to paint hers green with pink spots. A big thanks to our friends at CraftProjectIdeas.com for the paints & paintbrushes we used for this craft. Print the […]

Cardboard Puppet Theater

Puppets are an all-time favorite here, especially our Storytime Puppets. Lorelai still plays with them regularly, so when I suggested making an actual puppet theater for the sets, she was thrilled. The great thing about this puppet theater is that it’s not complicated at all. I didn’t even write out instructions, just tips, which you […]

Clothespin and Cupcake Liner Flower Craft

You can never have too many flower crafts, right? Especially when you have a little girl at home who loves them! Lorelai and I made these clothespin & cupcake liner flowers last night and we love how they turned out. It’s such a quick and simple craft, anyone can do it! What You’ll Need– Clothespins, […]

Braided Friendship Bracelets Tutorial

Last week, my six-year-old daughter came home from school and announced that she and three other girls in her class had formed a club – The L Club. They all have names that start with L and they are all best friends. Seriously, how cute is that? She wanted to make friendship bracelets for everyone […]

Printable Princess Craft

princesscraft

Princess Crafts have always been a hit here, especially when my daughter was a toddler. At six and a half, she has mostly outgrown the princesses, so I was surprised when she asked me to make a new one. I readily agreed. You can see all of our old princess crafts in the Character Section, […]
