The weekend will be here before you know it, so now's the perfect time to start making your plans for how you'd like to spend your days off.
There are few things more fun than working on craft projects together with your kids.
They're away from their various electronic screens, you get some quality family time, and you might even end up with some amazing decorations to hang up around the house.
So, without further ado...
Let’s get crafty!
(Don’t worry; none of these crafts require the use of a power drill.)
1. Yarn Block Printing
All you need for this craft is some yarn, some blocks of wood (or anything block-of-wood-shaped), some paint, and paper. When you’re done, you’ll be left with an awesome piece of modern art.
2. Giant Sunflower
This is a great way to upcycle those oatmeal containers that typically end up in your recycling bin. I can totally see a bunch of these being used to decorate a kid’s room.
3. Star Garland
Here’s a dainty garland you can make using only a bit of stone clay, some baker’s twine, and hot glue. Obviously, you could make any shape, so don’t feel limited to stars only!
4. Flower Pounding Tote Bag
Looking for a way to blow off some steam? Grab some greenery and flowers from outside, tape them to a tote bag, cover them with a light towel, and lightly tap with a hammer. The color and shapes of the flowers will transfer to the fabric, leaving you with a beautiful spring-inspired tote bag (and your stress will be relieved, too).
