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

trollcraft

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 […]

Laminate Butterfly Craft

laminatebutterflies

We are always looking for fun ways to use the craft supplies we have. Our friends at CraftProjectIdeas.com sent us a goodie box with crafty stuff recently and we’ve been having fun coming up with crafts with the materials. The “scoop” craft sticks, fuzzy sticks (pipe cleaners), glitter glue, and gems, and magnets that we […]

Button Owl Craft

buttonowls

We have quite the collection of craft supplies after years of making fun crafts. I’ve been cleaning out our stash and recently came across these jumbo buttons. Last week we made some Clothespin Button Spiders, and today we made some mini Owls! We are still huge fans of owls here, so this was the perfect […]

Handprint Witch Craft

As I mentioned in our Handprint Monsters post the other day, we are huge fans of handprint crafts. I started doing them with Lorelai (7) when she was just a baby, and we have continued the fun throughout the years. Last weekend she made this adorable Handprint Witch! This one is super easy. Check out […]

Fennec Fox Printable Craft

fennec

The Fennec is probably one of those adorable animals out there — at least in my opinion! My mom recently bought my seven-year-old a t-shirt that has an illustration of a Fennec. She suggested I make it into a craft. While this one doesn’t look like the shirt, it’s still pretty cute. And instead of […]

Handprint Monsters Craft

handprintmonsters

Handprint crafts are our absolute favorite, but I have to say that these sparkly & fun handprint monsters take the cake. They turned out SO cute and were a blast to make. We’ll definitely be doing this one again. I found this glittery/confetti paint at Michaels on a recent trip and snatched it up. It […]

Hercules Beetle Printable Craft

herculesbeetle

October seemed the perfect month to post this creepy little bug! This is a Hercules beetle, a horned beetle native to the rainforests of Central and South America. My husband gave me the idea to design this craft, and my seven-year-old was definitely on board to paint it. We normally make sweet, smiling animals. This […]

Clothespin Button Spiders

spidercraft

I love quick and easy crafts that take minimal materials, and this one fits that bill perfectly. I bought these mini clothespins from Michaels earlier today. It hit me almost immediately that we should make button spiders with them. They turned out SO cute. I hope you get a chance to make some! Materials We […]

Sabertooth Tiger Printable Craft

sabertoothtiger

After recently watching Ice Age, my daughter requested a sabertooth tiger craft. Diego, the character in the movie, is really cute. He’s tough on the outside and a big teddy bear on the inside. We love him! So I designed a craft. It’s not an exact replica of the character, but it’s still fun! Don’t […]

Printable Jack-o-Lantern Witch Craft

jackolanternwitch

It’s that time of year for Halloween Crafts! These are my absolute favorite. A little spooky, a lot of fun! Well, this one isn’t spooky. It’s a Jack-o-Lantern with a witch hat, a suggestion given to me by my daughter. Grab your own template below and enjoy!! Open Jack-o-Lantern Witch Printable Printable Instructions | Terms […]

Printable Soldier Craft

soldiercraft

Finding time to do crafts these days is pretty hard with Lore’s school schedule. She gets out so late, and between homework, dinner, and bathtime, there really doesn’t leave much time for art projects. The weekends have been pretty busy, too. I caught a pretty nasty cold/bronchitis from somebody at her birthday party so we […]

Printable Sheriff’s Badge Craft

sheriffbadge

Howdy crafty people! Today I’m posting this fun Sheriff’s Badge craft. This is a full-page craft. You can probably mess with your printer settings if you would like it to come out smaller (to pin on your child’s shirt for pretend play, for example). This one is straight forward and is all one piece. We […]

Pretend Play Set: Library

library

Do you have a little reader? I do, and she loves everything about books and visiting the library. It only made sense to design a printable Library set! This set includes the Book Checkout Wand, a Library Card, an Overdue Book card, and a Check-Out Receipt. The best part? It all fit on ONE page. […]

Cowboy & Cowgirl Printable Craft

cowboy

Having lived in Texas for nearly her entire life, my almost seven year-old daughter loves cowgirls! She was happy when this craft landed in front of her last week, and she happily got to painting right away. The great thing about this printable is that it has TWO heads – a boy and a girl, […]
