Flower & Butterfly Crafts Round-Up

Spring is in the air, which means it’s time for fun spring crafts. Flowers and butterflies are essential to spring-time so I thought it would be fun to do a round-up! Here is a list of our flower and butterfly crafts, both printable and non. Don’t forget to PIN the above image, or share this […]


Butterfly Sun-Catcher with Printable

Sun-catchers are one of our favorite types of crafts to make. They are fun to make and always turn out really cute. See: Turtle | Heart | Earth… You only need a few materials — the printed template, scissors, contact paper, and tissue paper cut into small squares. Open & Print: Butterfly Sun-Catcher Craft Directions: […]


Jackrabbit Craft with Printable

Here is another craft I have been sitting on since before my baby was born 2 months ago. Um, oops! It’s funny how a baby can make time just fly right by. I’m really enjoying this newborn stage. I feel like with my first daughter and her prolonged NICU stay, the beginning went too fast. […]


Fuzzy Stick Bubble Wands Craft

Yesterday was a rainy, dreary day that kept us indoors. We went out to a local museum the day before so we were looking forward to having a quiet day at home. I brought out our craft supply cart and we went to work on these fun bubble wands. We made a Wire Bubble Wand […]


African Savannah Collage

We enjoyed making this savannah collage with the african animals we crafted recently. My 7 year-old was really into this. She helped draw the background, pond, and mountain, and did the majority of the coloring. We used a length of easel paper and then just taped the crafts onto the background. It turned out wonderfully!


African Savannah Animals Round-Up

The Savannah Grasslands of Africa was such a fun biome to “study” with my seven year-old daughter. She came up with the idea of making a bunch of animals from this particular area of the world, and I thought it was a great idea. We sat down and made a big list of animals with […]


Red-Billed Hornbill Printable Craft

Remember Zazu, the feisty bird from the movie The Lion King? Well, he’s a Red-Billed Hornbill, the same type of bird I’m featuring as a craft today! When coming up with a list of African Savannah animals, we chose to include this one for some variation. We have lots of mammals and needed a bird […]


Leopard Printable Craft

Another addition to our African Savannah animal list is this Leopard. This big cat has always been one of Lorelai’s favorites. When she was younger, she crafted these baby big cats (make one a leopard!) and was excited to do this adult version. She had fun with the spots and got quite creative in a […]


Gazelle Printable Craft

Continuing on with the African Savannah theme, today I’m posting the Gazelle craft we made last week. Lore (7) was really funny when she was painting these crafts. She’s usually really laid back when picking out colors to paint her animals, but she insisted on making the Savannah animals realistically colored. So that meant lots […]


Realistic Lion Printable Crafts

When coming up with a list of animals for our African Savannah unit, the lion was at the top of our list. In the past, we have made a cartoon lion craft and a paper plate lion mask, but this is the first realistic version. We decided to go for the whole family this time […]


Wildebeest Printable Craft

Lorelai and I are working hard on completing our African Savannah theme this week while she’s off of school for Spring Break. I doubt we’ll get all of the crafts up on the website in that short of time, but they will be posted soon. Today I’m sharing the Wildebeest craft I designed and she […]


Baboon Printable Craft

On our mission to do an African Savannah theme during our spring break, we came across the baboon! This cheeky (hehe) primate was fun to find and design, and Lorelai enjoyed painting & assembling him. Grab your printable copy below and check out the fun baboon facts at the bottom of this point. Enjoy! Open […]


Warthog Printable Craft

Lorelai and I are working on a new theme during spring break — the African Savannah! One of the first animals that came to mind in that category was the warthog. We recently watched Lion King and Pumba is one of the characters in that movie that we both loved. Designing and crafting this one […]


Kingfisher Printable Craft

Kingfisher birds are found all over the world, and the species we did is brightly colored and beautiful! My 7 year-old decided to try out her new neon paints for this craft and they worked perfectly in capturing the brightness of the kingfisher. Grab your copy of the printable below and enjoy! You can also […]


Cupcake Craft with Printable

Mmm, cupcakes! This sweet craft is a printable one! My daughter chose to use our sparkly “cosmic” paint for her cupcake, but regular paint or crayons/markers will work, too. Open & Print: Cupcake Craft Print above and enjoy! Printable Instructions | Terms of Use | Facebook Page | Pinterest


Googly Eye Monster Crafts

If you’re looking for a fun craft, look no further! This was one my seven year-old came up with and I designed. She wanted to make “googly eye monsters” with the hundreds of googly eyes we currently own. We’ve made several monster crafts in the past, including Handprint Monsters & Characters from Monster’s Inc.… we […]


Book of the Week #12

» Week 12 Featured Book: Bad Kitty » Author: Nick Bruel » Illustrator: Nick Bruel Lorelai chose Bad Kitty for this week’s Book of the Week. She has been saying for weeks that we should feature this book. She recently bought this book through Scholastic with some chore money she’d earned and immediately fell in […]


Valentine’s Heart Sun-Catcher Craft

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we have been enjoying all of the heart crafts. =) This is not our first heart sun-catcher craft. You can see our previous ones here and here. I prefer this type, though, with the shape outlined and colored and the inside a tissue collage. You can find […]
