So we’ve got dinner covered.
And we’re baking with the kids.
Now let’s make things!
Any long time reader on this blog knows that I’m not much for crafting – I’m more “craft adjacent”. I don’t sew or knit, and don’t own a Cricut or laminating machine (though I covet the former).
I like easy crafts that look appealing and can be made with household or easily ordered items. And I was pleasantly surprised at how many of these I had gathered over the years!
Salt Dough – so easy and versatile, a perennial crowd pleaser.
Seed Bombs – perfect for Earth Day, and for the 10,000 walks you’re taking every day.
Bird Seed Hearts – sweet and easy.
Flubber – can we ever have enough?
Placemats – take those class valentines and make a cute keepsake!
Cupcake Cones – cause everything tastes better in a cone.
Seed Paper – kids go nuts for this one.
Craft Caddy – if everyone is spread out all over the house, this easy caddy keeps things portable and in-place.
Paper Cones – fun to fill with flowers or candies and hang outside a neighbor’s door!
Envelope Template – sending cards to friends and loved ones? Use any paper you have lying around to make a fun envelope to mail them in!
Crayon Vase – dress up a tin can with this charming little DIY.
Heart Egg – because even breakfast can use a boost.
DIY Soap – easy, fun and completely customizable!
Clementine Votive – one of my personal faves.
Paper Pots – another easy craft for Earth Day, and looks pretty cool too!
Paper Cupcake Liners – run out of cupcake liners? You can make your own with parchment paper!
Orange Bird Feeder – one of the easiest, yet happy-making crafts you can make!
Have fun and please let me know what you make! 🙂
