Keep the family busy this weekend with these fun projects.
Gather together your developed photos and take a day to organize them in a scrapbook. Your kids can help decide which photos
will go in the scrapbook and they can help with the page layouts. You will love preserving your favorite family memories.
Keep kids busy with this toy that they'll enjoy long after they're done crafting it. Concerned about it getting dirty? Luckily
you can throw this guy in the washing machine and he'll come out like new.
This beautiful craft is a great way to let little ones explore their creativity, while making something that's a treat for
the ears and eyes.
Tap into their creative spirit and imagination by letting them create rock animals they can play with all sumer.
Bring the beach home! Make this cute craft out of clamshells you collect on vacation and it'll feel like you never left.
These adorable hair clips are as fun to make as they are to wear! Let your daughter embrace her personal style as she makes
her own accessories.
Have fun painting a sea of these cute fishy plates. But be careful -- these pretty plates are for decoration, not eating off
Change up your everyday dining room placemats and napkins by affixing colorful buttons along the edges. Use a variety of shapes
and colors to keep things vibrant and interesting. You can use buttons that you’ve collected from clothing tags, or you can
purchase matching buttons from an arts and crafts store.
Transform your ordinary glass vase into a colorful centerpiece. All you need is a pretty cloth napkin and some bright ribbon.
Let your kids help decide which colors would look best, then make a trip to your local grocery store for some simple flowers
to fill your vase.
Create these pretty scalloped felt pillows for either a kid’s bedroom or playroom. Get your kids to help you pick out the
colors and help line the edges.
Use old brooches, large buttons and clip-on earrings to transform your refrigerator into a colorful work of art. Let the kids
help you search the house to find items to use as magnets, then get together at the kitchen table to securely glue small round
magnets to the back. Use your attractive new magnets to proudly display artwork and good grade reports.
Turn your next meal into a family affair by letting kids help out with the preparation and cooking. Choose easy recipes like
Low-Fat Mac n’ Cheese with Peas or Sloppy Toms, so you can enjoy each other’s company without worrying about a complicated recipe.
If the weather won’t allow for outdoor play, create your own sandbox indoors with rice, beans, oats and other dried goods.
Find a large bin to fill with the dried goods, and use shovels and other plastic toys to help kids create their own castles.
Encourage kids to use their creativity and create their own terrarium. They can pick their plants and add their own toys or
items to the container. It’s a no-mess alternative to a houseplant.
Give kids a chance to get their hands dirty while learning how to garden. This is a simple Saturday afternoon project, and
within a few weeks they will be thrilled to see their hard work in bloom. We suggest starting with a basil plant so you can
make fresh and yummy pizzas when the leaves are ready for plucking.
