Kids' Crafts

 Welcome again to the A to Z Blogging Challenge! Today's letter is K and I'm focusing on Kids' Crafts for the day.

 Doing crafts with kids can be fun! But you don't always have the best outcome...
The point is, though, that they had fun!

We used to go to a story time weekly in Michigan that did a craft after the story, and ended up with a fridge full of kid crafts!
Here's the pink pumpkin in detail, I came up with that for her after we read Pinkalicious' pink pumpkin book.

One of my favorite crafts that we made recently was a little pennant flag.
 It's really simple! Just fold a piece of construction paper in half and cut a triangle out.
Take a stick and stick that in the fold, slather glue on one side to glue the sides together, then decorate with crayon, markers, or even better, sticky back fun foam! I have some left over from other crafts, so I've been having some fun with it. 

Can you tell? (I had to keep looking at reference pictures for the mice)

One more fun craft is this pot o' gold, that we made for St. Patrick's Day
I feel bad, my daughter didn't get to make any Easter crafts, have to make that up to her with some fun spring and summer crafts! Her birthday is coming up, I'm pinning some fun ideas on Pinterest for her party! Follow me on Pinterest for more fun ideas!

Thanks for joining me again for the A to Z Blogging Challenge! Join me again tomorrow for something that starts with L!


  1. Awww these are so cute! You and your daughter must have lots of fun doing these! The crafts-covered refrigerator is a treat!

    From the A-Z neighborhood,
    D(ee) is for Deecoded

    1. We do have lots of fun, though sometimes I end up finishing the craft for her! All those crafts on the fridge are still in a box, I haven't decided what to do with them since moving. We ended up with a LOT more before leaving Michigan. Don't know where I'll put crafts if we have another kid and they're both making stuff!

    2. You can just select the best ones and keep those?
