30 Days of Kid Crafts

A few weeks ago, Connie asked me if I had thought of doing some art since I’m not having a lot of success with words right now.  I have been thinking about the same thing lately, even though I’m not a real crafty kind of gal.

I haven’t gotten any projects started yet, but I’m thinking that I might try working on a small lap quilt.

Meanwhile though, I’ve been enjoying checking out all of the great craft ideas shared at Skip to My Lou’s Craft Camp. She’s compiled 30 days of 30 fun crafts for kids from 30 bloggers, and they look like a lot of fun.

I really like the string puzzle, string flower pots, glycerine soaps, embroidery (maybe making a quilt is overrated), pillow (I think my 9 year-old would like this one!), yo-yo balloons (ooh, another fun one), and smores on a stick.

OK, I just realized that a few of those are from her craft camp from last year, but wow, I just couldn’t stop myself from clicking through to other entries, and I thought some of you all would enjoy browsing her craft ideas too.

Prepare to be inspired!

(All except for you, Tia. I know how craft-challenged you are. Ha!)

P.S. – If you’re looking for some fun crafts to go along with read-alouds, Crafty Crow has a wonderful selection on her site!
