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 http://www.workitmom.com/bloggers/workingonmotherhood, 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!
Whether your yard is ready for spring planting or it’s still buried under a foot of snow, these crafty critters will help get your kids excited to explore the great outdoors and its creepiest, crawliest wildlife.
Here we have your classic egg carton caterpillar from WikiHow. My sons have made these at daycare every spring.
I love this handprint caterpillar, which doubles as a keepsake (via Pinterest, source unknown).
Here’s a video showing you how to make a magnetic dragonfly clip, perfect for hanging up more kid art in your kitchen. (From Parents, photo by Scott Little.)
…and the tie-dye coffee filter version (from I Can Teach My Child).
Leave off the wings and make these easy-peasy pompom caterpillars, great for the littlest kids learning their colors and/or perfecting their fine motor skills. (From Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.)
