My daughter found a box of assorted corks the other day. She was so excited when she found them and immediately wanted to know what she could do with them. Her excitement rubbed off on me and I had to find a project for the corks too. These champagne corks were perfect for our pumpkin patch.

Cardboard Haunted House
Hey all! Oh, how we have missed you!! We have been very busy and it has been a few months since we have done any art with you, but we had one craft we just needed to share. When we started making it, we didn’t know where it was going to take us, so unfortunately their is no tutorial and not many pictures, but we were so proud of it that we had to share with our crafty friends.
Pastel & Watercolor Dandelion
We are back with another pastel and watercolor art project. Dandelions may give me the sneezes, but they are just so light, fluffy, pretty and also the inspiration for our latest project. This pastel and watercolor dandelion is perfect for the kiddos and for the adults. If you are looking for a quick and simple art project for the spring or summer, this is it.
Pastel & Watercolor Peacock Feathers
Hello all! This week, we played around with pastels and watercolors to make some pretty and easy art. These pastel and watercolor peacock feathers were so quick and easy to make that my little one and I got a little carried away and ended up making a bunch. All you need for these are watercolor paper, oil pastels and some watercolors.
Ladybug Art with Free Printable
Who else here loves ladybugs? Raise your hand. I know they can be pesky, but goodness, they are just so cute. We made some adorable ladybug art projects over the weekend and just had to share them with you. And we included a free printable ladybug in case you want to try one of your own.
Paper Plate Hopping Bunny
We had so much fun with our last interactive bee craft, that we wanted to keep the interactive crafts going. This paper plate hopping bunny craft is perfect for Easter or just for the spring. Draw your own bunny or use one of our free printable bunnies. One was created by me and the other by my 8 year old daughter, who was so excited about this craft that she wanted to make her own.
Paper Plate Bumble Bee
We are already a few days into spring and we couldn’t be happier. We have been spending a lot of time outdoors and can’t wait to see all of our springtime blooms. When discussing with my little one what would be a good craft to make for the spring, she suggested this. We do a lot of interactive crafts and she thought it would be cute to make a bumble bee flying from flower to flower. She was right. We think this paper plate bumble bee craft came out absolutely adorable. Thanks little miss for the great idea.
Mosaic Sunshine Craft for Kids
Paper mosaics are a favorite of ours. This paper mosaic sunshine craft is simple and only requires construction paper, one piece of white paper and glue. If you are out of construction paper and can’t make it to the store, try tearing out pieces of old magazines to find the colors that you need. This is always a fun option. This craft is great for spring or summer. Let the sun shine in.
