It's Craft Lightning Time! This month we are all sharing Kid's Busy Activities that can be dne in 15 minutes or less!
Whenever I start making something, my daughter wants to help. I should be nurturing that crafty desire, but most of the time I just want to get the project done. So, this time, I have a craft that can be done with your kids, and it will add just the right touch of spring to your home!
To make this you need the following:
Scissors or paper cutter
To begin with, we cut "spring-y" scrapbook paper into 1/4 inch strips. Then we curled them around a pencil very tightly. We gently slid them off to get circles like this:
Next, we cut out letters for the top. I used my Silhouette, but you could easily cut them out by hand.
We let it dry a little, then mounted it on an old empty frame. My daughter liked it like this, but you could really fancy it up in a better fitting frame and add some embellishments. I probably would have done more, but I promised to let her do it her way. (So hard to let go! But it will pay off down the road, I hope, as she learns and develops her own craftiness....)
