A Dozen Kid Crafts for August

So instead of Throwback Thursday, I’m sharing this roundup of fun crafts for the hooligans.  Because maybe by August you need a little creativity boost…I certainly do, and I have the supplies for most of these already on hand, so I don’t have to make a trip to the store with kids and chaos in tow!Untitled-1


I found lots of great ideas at Joanns….just click on the photo to go to the idea page.
