I’m so excited to share this fun craft with you! A few years back my husband and I went on a Caribbean cruise and on our different stops I noticed all of the wind chimes made with bamboo but for some crazy reason, I never bought one. I’ve regretted it ever since. Not only do I love how this wind chime turned out but I loved using Gemz by Darice to add a bit of “bling”. This really sparkles in the sun! [Read more...]
Every night before bedtime one of my boys asks me what fun thing we will do the next day. Most days we are too busy running around with sports, scouts and music lessons for too many extras but since they’ve been asking daily, I thought it was time to make something fun and easy.
Of course boys are obsessed with anything they can throw or shoot across the room, (Is it just my boys? ) so making a paper rocket was the perfect craft for them, plus it entertained them for quite awhile (bonus #1). And since these are small and lightweight, there is no damage done when they go shooting at one of your windows, or into your ceiling fan (because we all know that when they start shooting/throwing stuff it always hits the ceiling fan, so, bonus #2).
Paper Rocket Tutorial
Supplies you will need:
- Bendy Straws

These totally brought me back to being a kid again! What kid doesn’t like a kazoo?? And what mom actually does like their kids to have a kazoo? Ok, just kidding. My house is already loud so I figure, what the heck, they’re making music.
These are so easy to make.
