Here’s a quick project for crafters young and old – a simple 4-sided diorama, ready to be filled with your scenes of choice. Start out by drawing a large circle on a piece of 12″x12″ card stock (I drew around a dinner plate). Then do the same of 3 more pieces of card stock, so that you have 4 in total.
We are well into the throws of summer here, and between trips to the beach, swimming lessons, picnics and playdates, my kids are always looking for an opportunity to be creative at home. Having the kids work on making a cardboard box arcade will provide hours of fun and entertainment as well make memories to last a lifetime. My children are able to do most of this with minimal supervision from me, but if your kids are smaller, you may want to help with cutting cardboard boxes as they can be very tough!
Tegenn has been desperate to make some slippers for quite some time, so she was quick to jump on the Super Happy Slippers project from Let’s Sew Together by Rubyellen Bratcher. They’re on the cover – she spotted them immediately!
Last week I shared an interview with Rubyellen Bratcher, author of the new book Let’s Sew Together and this week I’m sharing a few projects that my kids and I have been inspired to make.I honestly can’t think of a nicer family activity than sitting and creating something with my children. With a few simple tools, supplies, a little inspiration and suddenly all is calm and productive, fun and focussed. The kids appreciate this creative down time as much as I do.
