Nothing is better than celebrating the 4th of July with good weather and some outdoor fun. The ladies at CreateForLess have put together a tutorial for a patriotic ring toss to keep young and old alike occupied until it’s dark enough to light off some fireworks.
Now that summer vacation has begun I’ve been on the lookout for easy crafts we can do on the go using materials we find. It may only be early June, but it has been over 90 degrees all week and we’ve found ourselves hanging out at the river a little every day. The little ones always collect rocks by the river, and come to think of it, where ever we travel. So I got to thinking, why not make use of some of those rocks in our crafts this summer? Here are some crafts you can make with rocks from the park, nature hikes or even in your own backyard.
This first idea is a great craft and game to play on camping trips. Story rocks are fun and easy to make, and they make relaxing around the campfire even more interesting. Kids love hearing and telling stories but they usually need something to get the story started, these rocks are the perfect inspiration for group storytelling.
The air is getting chillier, the days are getting shorter and the holiday season is right around the corner. I’m spending more time at home crafting and starting to wonder what I’ll be giving friends and family for the holidays. Here are some gift ideas to crochet and knit for your loved ones. I’ve included classic crochet patterns such as hats and scarves and some fun whacky gift ideas for kids and kids at heart as well!
A hat for everyone on your holiday list. There are so many styles to choose from. Here you will find classic, unique, and adorable hat patterns for adults, kids and even infants.
I just fell in love with these rabbit and bear patterns. They also include patterns for different outfits for your new cuddly friends. These patterns and photos are wonderful inspiration to beginners like me who aspire to gain more knitting experience.
