DIY mason jar fairy lights are surprisingly easy to make for the entertainment value they offer.

DIY Mason Jar Fairy Lights - DIY Joy

Unlike many DIYs that have long lists of supplies you may or may not find readily available, this one just uses glow in the dark paint, glitter and pretty much any clean jar you can find. I do recommend you get a few different colors of glow in the dark paint to maximize the fairy cool factor, but any craft store and even Walmart will little jars or tubes of this type of paint. A fun and creative craft that can be enjoyed even if you do not do a “perfect” job painting it, this one is inexpensive enough that you can afford to throw it away or at least give it away when you get tired of it. This cool glow in the dark craft is a neat project idea for kids and teens, but I have to admit that adults find glow in the dark fairies to be mesmerizing as well…. How to Make Minion Stick Puppets.

Felt Owls from Styrofoam Balls. Kid's Craft: Felt and Pine Cone Elves. I think I am falling in love with felt again.

Kid's Craft: Felt and Pine Cone Elves

Actually, I know that to be true. One reason is the wonderful wool blend and 100% wool felt that is so readily available. My go-to source for wool blend felt is Benzie Design’s Etsy shop. Remember the felt turkey tutorial and the felt pine cone owls? 32 Easy Homemade Bird Feeders. Making homemade bird feeders for your backyard is a fun way for you and your kids to get to know which birds are native to your area, and a great way to help out your feathered friends when their food sources are scarce in winter-time.

32 Easy Homemade Bird Feeders

Every winter, here in my daycare, we make homemade bird feeders to scatter among our trees and gardens. We like to keep things on the simple side here, so we always use common household materials to make our feeders. The hooligans always love the process, and they get so excited when they discover birds and squirrels nibbling away at the feeders they made with their very own hands. DIY Lava Lamps Tutorial.

It seems the hot new thing going around on Pinterest are sharpie mugs so I thought I’d give it a go. I remember as a child my mom bought kits that you colored on the picture frame or mug with special crayons then poped in the oven to bake your art on. So I thought this must be along the same lines, just a cheaper way of doing it. Since we already had tons of Sharpie markers and when I stopped in the dollar store I picked up two white mugs for only a buck each. Summer Fun with Sidewalk Chalk. Kids Craft: Felt & Pinecone Owl Ornamants. It is time for another kid’s craft (you may remember our felt and pine cone turkeys) and this one though we are making it for holiday tree ornaments can be used all year round.

These cute little owls come with three different personalities and with this pattern you can mix and match to make your own little characters. Felt is such a great material for kid’s crafts and if you have yet to try a luscious wool mix felt, you need to treat yourself and buy some. The wool blend is to nice to the touch, easy to cut and looks great when you are done.
