Family Craft Ideas

with Leah

I'm Leah--wife, mother, editor, writer, photographer, and rickrack apologist. There's craftiness in my DNA, but between the kids and my work and the house and the television and my blogs (http://www.agirlandaboy and, among others), I have to keep my projects quick and easy if I hope to finish them before my boys (born December 2008 and July 2012) graduate from college. You're a working mom and you're busy too, but if you still want to get your craft on, join me here for some fun projects!

Spring is coming, ready or not. (But I think we’re all ready, aren’t we?) Here are some fun showers and flowers projects to welcome my favorite time of year.

I love this colorful spring branch from Inner Child Fun. You could also do this on a real branch and display it in a vase.

These coffee filter umbrellas make pretty suncatchers. (Idea from High Five magazine; photo from Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles.)

These pretty paper flowers from the Seasoned Mom make a great bouquet, and great use of all those cute cupcake liners I can’t stop buying.

Daffodils are always the first spring flowers to bloom around here. These are adorable. (From Baby Centre UK)

Cotton ball rain clouds three ways:

With sew-on raindrops, from Stacy Vaughn (great for honing those fine motor skills)

And if you have the time, these 3D raindrops from Mini Eco really kick things up a notch.
