Toddler crayons... What does one do with a whole bag of old, unwanted, crayons... some that are perfectly good - just extremely illogical for small hands... and others that are broken and of no use to anyone?? Why, recycle them into toddler crayons, of course!!! Like most families with toddlers... no matter what the child's temperament. you always end up with a bunch broken crayons.... Fact of life. Those thin, elongated little buggers, are just not designed for a toddlers chunky hands, or their beautiful, spontaneous spurts of swirling energy & creativity! Toddler crayons...

Clouds on the ceiling in Crafts for decorating and home decor, parties and... - StumbleUpon

What a tender project we've found at ohdeedoh! Let your children fly their imagination in their own room with these great clouds hanging on the ceiling. You will only need cotton or polyester batting to shape the cloud you'd like to create, pinching and pulling it until get the desired cloud; next, form a spiral with a wire along a pencil and wherein one end you will create a circle (with the help of pliers) to tie the fishing line. To end, join wire with batting with a corkscrew movement and hang it on the ceiling with Scotch tape.

i saw this craft after the years of different butterfly punch art and i was finally ready. i had pictures of annie painting the paper but they have disappeared. the first step is to watercolor paint on paper.paint all over with pattern or with out....less water makes for brighter colored paint.and let it dry. then punch out as many butterflies as you can. i bought this martha stewart butterfly punch at joann's.they are not cheap but it was on sale and they do have 40% off coupons quite often.and THAT punch is really cool.VERY easy to use! it's in two pieces so you can punch out from any part of the paper not just on the edge.VERY COOL.i get why it costs more than the other brands....quality.it's martha!

Tutorial: Homemade Sidewalk Chalk | oh my! handmade goodness by Michelle Vackar, Modern Handmade Child One of our favorite outside activities at our home is drawing with chalk on the driveway. You can play hopscotch, four-square, and of course draw and create silly stories. My daughters and I were talking one day as we played hopscotch about how to make chalk and I thought to myself, let’s try it! It ended up being quite a lot of fun. What you will need: • Toilet paper or paper towel tubes • Scissors • Duct tape • Wax paper • Small bucket or disposable container to make the recipe • ¾ cup of warm water • 1 ½ cups Plaster of Paris • 2-3 tablespoons of tempera paint • Paper bag or a “mess mat”

Capture the Details: Easter egg craft - suncatchers! The kids and I made some pretty Easter egg decorations for our sliding glass door. They are super easy to make, too! You will need: crayons in pretty colors, a crayon sharpener (usually built in to the larger crayon boxes), wax paper, invisible thread, a small hole punch, an iron and old towels. I chose bright 'girly' colors for my eggs and so did Sarah.
