Crafts



When I was a kid, I used to love working on any type of craft I could get my hands on. I still do. Take a peek at Leah, who is peeking back at me through the cute little finger puppets we made yesterday.

Anyway, the real reason for this post is to tell you about Kids Craft Weekly, a free e-mail newsletter that features craft projects for children. Amber, who is a mother of two living half way around the world, also has a craft blog called The Pointy Sister. As usual, I am just blown away by such talent all these crafty blogging moms have!

Hi Stephanie
I just subscribed. Since the creative part of my brain never developed I am always happy for some new ideas for activities. Thanks!

Finger puppets are super cool. I just got a catelog with some great ones. I will have to look it up.

I LOVE those kind of things. I still have (somewhere) a marionette I made when I was about eight. It looks awful now but I had so much fun with that thing. It was some kind of ostrich-giraffe mix LOL. I named it 'Frumpy'. Looking back, that name certainly fit.

Those puppets are so cute! I would pay money for those!

I love crafts too. I used to make all sorts of things with my sister when we were younger.

More recently, I've been painting pottery.

I love crafts too. I'm usually doing stuff for my neices and nephews. I'll subscribe too, since one day I'll have my own little one to play with.

Mom said: I remember you always drawing for hours and hours. You loved doing crafts. You always did have a great imagination. You and your sister were and still are very creative. You sure don't take after me.

Stacy said...

This is great! I was just looking at some craft books to start a file of things for the future crafting afternoons with Tori.

Thanks for posting this link!
