Make a pretty decorative butterfly out of a most undecorative item: coffee filters!
Valentine’s Day is only a couple of days away and I’m sure there are more than a few of you who haven’t even thought about your class valentines yet. Instead of running to the store, try whipping up one of these homemade valentines. They’re unique, memorable, and best of all: easy.
When I was little, I loved creating paper hearts this way, so I’m sure you could talk a kid into giving you a hand to create their valentines. These favors are super cute, and so easy to make, you’ll be done in no time.
I was looking for a fun alternative to the typical candy valentines, without making me into that “boring” mom who “never” gives anything fun. I think these Pencil Arrow Valentines will be “write” on target! I made these with stuff I already had around the house (except the fun pencils), and they are easy enough that even young crafters can help you!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I mean how can you miss it with all of the pink and hearts all over stores. Elyse’s school (aka daycare) is having a little party and I wanted to be sure that she had something festive to wear for the occasion.

A great farmyard animal craft idea for kids – learn how to make a pig planter out of an old plastic bottle!
We’re right in the middle of winter with only spring to look forward to. Lots of kids start to get a little cabin fever when it’s too cold for them to go out and play. Lots of kids also love penguins, so it only makes sense to entertain them by making some penguin friends to get them through the winter!
Not only is this penguin adorable, but it also reuses plastic bottles which can help keep the real penguins’ ocean homes safe. Make a whole Waddle of penguins! (Can you believe that’s actually what you call a group of them?)
