DIY Rain Cloud Blocks Inspiration from La Maison de Loulou here. You could paint the other side with a sun and flowers. For a good post on safe paints and sealers for kids’ toys go here. There is so much information on the internet about safe ways to paint toys.
DIY Portable Desktop Sandbox Tutorial from Nellie Bellie here. How much more fun is this than a zen garden? She made this from a wood box from Michaels and input from a 10 year old. However, this Altoids Tin DIY zen garden that I reblogged is pretty cool.
DIY Slinky Dog Tutorial from Brassy Apple here. You could make an elephant slinky, dinosaur slinky etc… This is a really easy tutorial.
This blog is for my crafting alter ego. I did lots of crafts with my very artistic mother growing up and continue doing them with kids now. I love really good kids' crafts that hold their attention and mine.
