Red-Billed Hornbill Printable Craft

redbilledhornbill

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

savannahcrafts-024

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

gazelle

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

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

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 […]

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 […]

Valentine’s Reading Challenge Printable

readchall

Whether you have a reluctant reader or a book worm, a reading challenge is always a good incentive to get your child reading – and keep them reading! My daughter happens to fall in the latter category; she’s never far from a book and usually has her nose stuck in one. I decided to make […]

Newt Printable Craft

newt

Whenever I think of newts, I think of that scene in the movie Matilda where the students put a newt in the evil headmaster’s water glass. It’s a classic! A reader suggested this craft, and I’m glad she did. Lorelai loved it. I made this one with only two legs. With the side-angle of the […]

Whimsy Christmas Tree Craft

whimsychristmastree

Christmas trees are my favorite thing to craft around the holidays. I decided to design a whimsical tree this year for Lorelai to make and she LOVED it. She used paint and “dot dot” paint markers to do this, as well as some gemstones that were given to us from our friends at CraftProjectIdeas.com. I […]

Egg Carton Turkey Craft

eggcartonturkeycraft

Thanksgiving is only a couple days away and we are just now making our first Thanksgiving craft of the year. That has to be a new (not great) record for us. This pregnancy is kicking my butt! But we did get around to making one, and it’s a cute one — Egg Carton Turkeys! Materials: […]

Troll Printable Craft

Just in time for Halloween! Here is a fun troll craft Lorelai made all on her own the other day. He was intended to be a darker color and have a club, but Lorelai lost the piece before she could glue it on. There’s one on the printable! Print below and enjoy. Open Troll Printable […]

Tasmanian Devil Printable Craft

tasmaniandevil

Tasmanian devils are fierce creatures. In most of the pictures I’ve seen, their mouths are wide open and their sharp teeth are very prominent. So I designed this scary printable to reflect their fiesty personalities. Lorelai immediately dubbed it as ‘CREEPY’ and had fun painting it. She made it even more silly by using blue […]

Printable Halloween Playdough Mats

playdoughmats

Halloween is just a few days away, and I wanted to share these playdough mats I made a while ago. One is a spiderweb and the other is a faceless jack-o-lantern (pumpkin). We have had a lot of fun with playdough mats in the past, though Lore is a bit old for them now. They […]
