create packs : encouraging open ended creativity

January 15th, 2014|Categories: crafts|Tags: , |16 Comments

You would already know my kids like to craft from much of the content that is shared here on the blog. You’ll know that I do, too. And although things have been really busy lately with a new baby and Christmas and holidays visiting family, we are still crafting most days, though a little differently. As much as we love and continue to make things that have an ‘end result’ to achieve, such as rocks that look like bugs or paper plates that look like koalas, we are big big big on open ended creating […]

{craft} egg carton jingle bells

December 15th, 2013|Categories: crafts|Tags: , |1 Comment

We love to make our own ornaments for the tree and the kids always love to see their creations hanging proudly! These egg carton jingle bells are really easy and very cute! Just cut out your egg cartons so you have the little ‘cup’ shape. I spray painted ours gold because it’s easy and quick! {I also only spray painted the tops, it would probably look nicer if you spray painted the insides too, we were just in a hurry to make something so I didn’t bother!} I poked holes in the top of each with […]
