This Raining Buttons craft is so adorable! Small buttons in all sorts of blue hues dangling off a white fluffy cloud makes this craft fun, unique and perfect for Summer time!
Jewelry making is not my thing. I think my jewelry making skills stopped somewhere in the 5th or 6th grade because I have never really made it past stringing beads onto stretchy cord, or making friendship bracelets, and those I haven’t done in a very long time.
CreateForLess recently moved our corporate office, and while moving is never fun, decorating a new space is. Right away, I noticed that there was no place for our incoming & outgoing mail and I knew a Mail Box Tray would need to be crafted soon. I love how this Button Lined Mail Tray turned out, and I hope that you enjoy it too.
Crafting and creating with young people is a learning experience for kids and adults. I like to use the prep-time as teachable moments. I might tell a background story about St. Patrick’s Day, how the tradition began etc. If they’ve never been to Ireland or seen pictures I might bring out my laptop and show pictures first of where Ireland is on the map and then of photographs of the landscape. Kids seem instinctively interested in geography, place, contrast, and of course, pictures, so I like to nurture these interests from a young age. Then I’ll introduce the activity and ask my little ones what they think might work and what might not. If we’re using something new I always like to model using the materials. Then I sit back and watch them discover and learn from their experience.
Kids can make this St. Patrick’s Day special with a lucky name plate for every member of the family.
If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.
