Bubbles are always a popular activity at my house and last weekend my two children and I made our own bubble wands. We spent about an hour putting together Arterro’s Bubble Wand Kit with my four year old daughter and six year old son…
My daughter, like most little girls, loves jewelry. I often sit with her while she is making bracelets and necklaces using her beads. I was looking for something new to do with her. This Artterro Collage Jewelry Kit was the perfect activity! She was still able to make jewelry and I was able to introduce new crafting techniques like decoupage.
In honor of Earth Day, we are making recycled crafts this month.

y little one just turned three and we’re still trying to hold the line on the birthday party escalation. Since she has a some friends, now, we had a few girls over for ice cream cake and crafts.
I’m not sure who loves the new Harumika Fashion Design mannequin more, me or my daughter. Anyone who has an interest in fashion would have fun with this toy. Harumika sets make a great present for a kid or a fun desktop creativity toy for an adult harboring a secret dream to become a fashion designer.
Kids love to express themselves through crafts projects, personalized products, and colorful accessories.
Shains brings all of this together in a fun, hip, eco-friendly and affordable way! Kids can easily spell out words and add icons to a variety of fun bracelets, necklaces or other accessories.
And, according to Shains, all products and packaging are made of recycled and recyclable content and everything Shains produces is certified lead free.
Summer is a great time for enrichment activities. Free from the daily grind of classes and homework, your child can explore his or her creative side.
Shop for art supplies on sale at local craft stores, or find wholesale arts and crafts supplies online at DollarDays. Many moms have a craft box (or craft closet) full of supplies to keep their kids occupied during school vacations and on rainy weekends.
I wasn’t bored much growing up. On rainy days and lazy Saturday afternoons, I’d be engaged in some craft project or interesting game. My mother, a teacher, has a gift for finding and organizing fun activities on a moment’s notice. Now that I’m a mom, I appreciate how easy she made it all look.
Some organized moms dedicate entire closets to craft supplies and keep file folders full of craft-ideas clipped from magazines and newspapers on-hand. But if that’s not your style, you can still entertain and educate your children with the fabulous art kits from Eye Can Art.
