About Morgan

Hi there! I'm Morgan, the summer intern at Create For Less. I've tried my hand at scrapbooking, sewing, and knitting. After a bit of trial and error, I've finally decided that up-cycling and repurposing is my favorite type of crafting. When I'm not at the office or my other job at a tavern, I like to travel, take photos, and hang in the great outdoors.

Kids Crafts: Fairy Gardens

Fairies are kind of a big deal. I heard a story once about Fairy Specialists needing to be contacted while a road was being built in Iceland because it would have interfered with a fairy home. No joke. Plus they make the perfect fantasy world to keep your kiddos occupied for hours! So I’ve put together a couple of fun, fairy-themed crafts. Enjoy!

Flower Pot Mushroom House

How cute is this little gnome home? I know, I know, this isn’t a fairy craft, but gnomes need a place to rest their heads too. Plus, this would look adorable in your garden and you know it.

Kids’ Crafts: Washi Tape

Washi tape is perfect for kids crafts because it’s so easy to work with, and it’s not too sticky so it can be removed and reapplied super easily if your little one makes a mistake! Check out these cute AND fun projects for your kiddos.

Magazine Holder

You can use these to hold all those magazines you haven’t had a chance to read yet or (should I even say it when it’s only August?) your kiddos school papers and notebooks *gasp*.  You can use paper and line it with washi tape like our Think Crafts blogger did, or you can cover the whole thing in cool washi tape designs!

You can keep these animals as is or paint the whole thing (including the hair clip!) to create a super hip and cute accessory for your little ones.

Kids Crafts: Clouds & Rain

In just 21 years of life, I have managed to live in two of the rainiest places in the world: Portland, Oregon and Southern Ireland. And yes, I love it. 55 degrees and drizzly is my “sunny and 75”. So, whether your kiddos love cloudy skies and the sound of rain like myself, or they’re stir crazy and stuck inside because of it, I have some crafts for them!

Homemade Rainsticks

Is there a sweeter sound than rain falling? Not likely. With this fun craft you can hear that pitter-patter whenever your heart desires, plus it doubles as an instrument for whenever your kiddos want to put on a concert!

Kids’ Crafts Rock!

I love geology. When I was an outdoor school camp counselor at good ol’ Camp Cedar Ridge I got to teach a bunch of cool 6th graders about rocks.  I also love cute crafts. Put the two of those together and you get this post! So sit your kiddos down to do some of these fun projects, and maybe even teach them the difference between sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks while you’re at it!

DIY Crayon Rocks
