It’s that time of year when the kids go back to school and the artwork comes back with them. If you’re like me you probably have a on-going gallery exhibit on the refrigerator door featuring all their latest masterpieces. I thought it would be fun to make some little magnets to commemorate this special time of year. Some back-to-school magnets! What’s more back-to-school than a bunch of little apples!
We’re always looking for cheap or– better yet– free materials to craft with here, so we’ve played around with crafting all sorts of things out of those big plastic gallon milk jugs over the last couple of years. The type of plastic they are made from is pretty versatile as far as crafting goes. We have two crafts here to show you.
April showers bring May flowers — flower hair clips in this case. This is a quick low-sew project that you can make for your favorite little girl. With just some scrap fabric and a hair clip, you can make a simple, stylish accessory that any girl would adore.
We’ve been admiring those Ukranian dyed eggs, called Pysanky for quite some time. They are amazingly beautiful and delicate wax resist artworks, that look like they would be very fun for an adult to attempt or an older child, but probably utterly frustrating, too fiddly, or downright impossible for the younger kids, so I thought we’d try making a more simple craft that mimicked the technique, but with more simple tools and on a much larger scale.
