I love inspiring my kids with messy art projects and crafty activities. My kids regularly ask to do craft projects and I’ve learned some tricks to minimize the mess. I’ve also found some great kid-friendly art supplies that are easy to set up and put away. I keep play dough on hand, create sensory bins that can be quickly stowed away and collect an assortment of kids’ art supplies. These eco-friendly art supplies are fun and they’re made with ingredients derived from the earth!
We’ve been going through a lot of paint around here. This crafty potato stamp painting activity is fun and creative. All you need is a paper bag or paint paper, several potatoes and craft paint!
If you have young kids then you know that kids like to stay super active. When I’m not saving my 2-year-old from daring stunts, I’m often crafting or painting with my girls. After nap time in the afternoon my kids often enjoy some screen time. They like watching shows such as the new Netflix series from DreamWorks Animation, “Trolls: the Beat Goes On“. My girls thought the Trolls movie was colorful and memorable with an upbeat soundtrack they like to dance to. The trolls-mania continues with the release of all new episodes that continue the journey with Poppy, Branch and the rest of the Trolls Village as they embark on even more Troll-tastic adventures!
Happy spring! This last week was a busy one; we were getting ready for Easter and it was Spring Break. Here are some of the highlights from our week of creative spring-inspired kids’ projects.
Do you sometimes struggle to come up with creative activities for the kiddos? My kids often have extra energy on days they can’t go outside. This means we get to do creative projects, make a DIY sensory bin, or practice learning new skills through play. Did you know kids learn something new from practically everything they do? Think about it. When kids ride a bike they practice balancing. When kids color they are practicing motor skills. When kids eat lunch they are discovering favorite foods or possibly trying new foods. Every day is like a maze of exploration for kids, which I think is fun! Here are some imagination-inspiring activities for kids to do on a rainy day.

Here are some fun glitter slime recipes to inspire your kids’ next science project.
Childhood can be such a fun time of learning and creating. I loved doing sewing projects and paper crafts as a child, which helped me becoming a resourceful adult and gave me a love for color! My kids also doing crafty activities like these cute tissue paper butterfly sun catchers. This project teaches kids cutting and gluing skills as well as critical thinking as kids decide which colors to use. Every butterfly design can be completely different!
