We Made It: Unicorn String Art

We Made It: DIY String Art

Although I've seen string art projects on Pinterest for a while now, I've never tried it out myself. And I still haven't. Nope. Chris decided he wanted to help the kids make their own nail art over the Labor Day weekend. 

I'm usually the craft-project leader at our house, so I was excited to see how they did. While I was busy working on a new tutorial, they Googled different images, hammered away, and got their string on! The one pictured above is Eleanor's unicorn. Chris even offered up some scrap wood from his shop and added an eyelet so she could hang it! 

I guess I should make one too, huh? How does your family create together?

We Made It: Cereal Box Chicken

We Made It: Cardboard Box Chicken

We Made It: Cardboard Box Chicken

I'm collaborating on a local project and we're making chickens! Out of cardboard cereal boxes! I found this awesome tutorial over at Krokotak. I have never worked with cereal boxes like this, and it was a lot of fun to see it come to life. I used Mod Podge and tissue paper for the head and body, and a permanent marker to squiggle on the eyes. Looking forward to making a whole flock of these!

We Made It: Cardboard Cat

Cardboard Cat

I'm starting a new series sharing some of our favorite projects we've made from how-to's by our fellow online creatives!

Today we made this cute Puss n' Boots Cardboard Art Cat made by my gal Michelle McInerey of Molly Moo for the Kids Activities Blog. 

Made of cardboard and popsicle sticks (and your color medium of choice), this makes a great co-crafting project for kids and parents. 

What are your favorite crafts to do with your kids?

Encourage Creative Play with Lego Juniors


Creative Play with LEGO Juniors



I don't think I've ever met a kid that didn't like LEGOS. Even I grew up playing with them, and they just keep getting better and better. With four kids between 4 and 11, it used to be that we only had easy and hard sets to choose from. Now LEGO has introduced LEGO JUNIORS, for the in-betweeners, and even my four-year-old can join the big kid play.
