Kids’ Crafts: Wreaths

We love making wreaths for all the seasons. You can get pretty creative when making wreaths with kids and use a variety of household and crafts materials to make some unique seasonal decor. Here are some of my favorites.

Dip Dyed Craft Sticks create a beautiful sunburst effect which is fun to make and guaranteed to brighten any door this season. This would also work well for making a sunburst mirror for the kids’ room.

Kids’ Crafts: A Burst of Color

Whether you’re experiencing the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having here in Portland or the strangely chilly weather in the NE these bright tie dye crafts are sure to be a crowd pleaser. Traditional tie dye can be kind of messy so I’d recommend a warm day in the backyard for those projects, but the Sharpie tie dye experiments and the tie dye clay can definitely be indoor activities as well. I hope you enjoy these Tie Dye favorites!

Clay is fun and easy to work with for kids and adults. The bright mix of colors is fun to create and use to decorate clay pots and coasters. These would also make great gifts for teachers and grandparents!

Kids’ Crafts: My Favorite Flowers

There’s nothing cuter than hearing a 1 year old correctly identify and say the word ‘Hydrangea!’ Here are some awesome flower crafts we can make at home using a variety of supplies we have on hand.

Peonies are my favorite flowers from our garden. The only thing I don’t like about Peonies is how quickly they bloom and drop their petals. Here’s a tutorial for how to make lasting tissue paper peonies in all of your favorite colors.
