Spin Art Streamers: 4th of July Craft for Kids

Spin art is a classic, fun activity that kids absolutely love to create! But creating streamers as a 4th of July craft was the last thing on Henry’s mind. I tried for many days and many approaches to create these. Sometimes I just don’t win. Okay, a lot of times.

Mother’s Day Craft for Kids to Make: Flower Cards

I am totally loving these flower cards the kids made for a Mother’s Day craft and gift for Grandma [and myself!].
