Bleeding tissue paper painting is a fun alternative to traditional painting. These bleeding tissue paper shamrocks are a fun and easy St. Patrick’s Day art idea.
Bleeding tissue paper is one of our favorites ways to paint. It is fun. It is messy and it produces very cool results. We have made a few bleeding tissue projects for Christmas and then Valentine’s Day. With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we had to make one for St. Paddy’s, as well. I love these bleeding tissue paper shamrocks because they are so simple.
Watch a lighting storm come to life with this storm in a cup luminary craft.
I love the rain. When I was a little girl, I would get excited when it would thunder and lightning. My daughter is a lot like me in this aspect. A while back we made it rain in a jar. Yesterday, we made it storm in a cup.
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Sea Star. How beautiful and glittery you are.
There is nothing quite as wonderful as watching your children create. It is a fascinating and beautiful thing. My little girl and I spend a lot of time creating together, but my favorite projects are the ones that she comes up with on her own. This lovely sea star was one of her ideas and she was so eager to share it with me.
Science and art combine in this amazing and simple rainbow experiment. The kids will love to make, explore and paint rainbows.
The other day, my daughter picked up a CD and was fascinated by the rainbows that formed on it when she moved it around. We held it under the light and moved it all around and admired the bursts of color. The colors were so beautiful. We wanted more and had an idea to try to paint our rainbows.
If your kids are Trolls fan, you have to try this cute and funny paper plate craft inspired by Cloud Guy.
We bought the movie Trolls last week. Since we bought it, we have watched it three or four times. My daughter loves those adorable Trolls, but our favorite character is by far the cloud. His part is a small one, but it is memorable. She loves him so much, that a Cloud Guy craft was a must.

The “Cloud Guy” looked like a simple enough character to make, so I wanted to make one with my daughter.
If you are looking for a simple Valentine’s Day project that is also great for developing cutting skills, these easy scribble hearts are just the thing that you are looking for.
I am sure that I have said it to you before, but my daughter loves hearts. She is always cutting them out of construction paper and coloring them or drawing designs on them.

One of her latest creations was the inspiration for this simple Valentine’s craft.
I come from a family of artists. When I was a little girl, I used to love looking at my aunt’s and uncle’s artwork. My aunt used to make beautiful landscapes and scenes using nothing but grains and I loved them. My daughter and I have dabbled a little with grain crafts. We made colored oat fall trees and textured shape mountains.
You don’t have to be Irish, to want a little bit of the luck of the Irish on your side. If you are looking for a simple St. Patrick’s Day craft, these painted rock shamrocks are perfect. The best part is you can find most of your supplies in your backyard. All you need for these simple sham-rocks are rocks, sticks and some acrylic paints.
I used to love in old cartoons when the characters would fall in love and their eyes would bulge out of their heads filled with hearts. This would always crack me up. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought that these love goggles would be a quick and fun project.
My daughter has had a lot of questions about leprechauns. “Are they like an elf?” “Where do they live?” “Do they live in gingerbread houses?” These are just a few of the questions that I have received from my little girl in recent weeks. We looked up some pictures of leprechauns and where they live. “Mama, the leprechaun’s house looks like my fairy door.” Leprechauns and their homes are indeed enchanting and magical just like the fairies that my daughter loves so much.

Because of all of this, I thought that making a leprechaun door would be fun for us to do.
