Thats the first thing me and my colleague said to each other when it was time for all the kids in our classroom to go home.

I had big plans to make the decorations for Em's Easter birthday party. They were all crafts that came from toilet paper or paper towel rolls, and I thought they would be an easy touch to her party, something homemade by her brother and me. But as the date approached and I had more and more things on my plate, the crafts were pushed to the wayside. It was all well and good because her party was beautiful just the way it was, with…Continue

Easter has come and gone and after a wonderful celebration with family and friends, I am left storing my baby chicks and tucking away my Easter books until next year. But what about those stupid plastic eggs?
As far as I…

This is a story of a happy little craft that was relatively painless to make and resulted in a very pretty flower arrangement that perhaps will adorn our table at Easter. But in order to fully understand how these flowers rose from the ashes of crafty destruction, you'll have to go back one post (or click here) and read about their humble beginnings. Plus, you won't know how to make the egg-shaped…Continue

Note: Feel free to use this tutorial as a lesson on how not-to-craft. This is the anti-craft.
As my kids have grown older I have found an inner craftician that I never knew I had. This should give all of you with craft anxiety hope because I am truly as creative as a wet sock. I have now spent more time (and money) in craft stores in 2011 than I had spent in the past 30 years of my life…

Yesterday was the first day of spring! Hooray! Are you ready to celebrate spring with your children? I know I am, even though it is snowing as we speak (another 4" or so...oh, bother). But snowstorm or no, it is officially spring and that deserves a celebration! And what better why to celebrate than with a craft? Well, a party would be fun, too, but we're fresh out of cupcakes. This craft took about 15 minutes and it only required materials I'm sure you…

An easy, basic craft that eased the transition between dinner and bedtime. A little filler that reminds us that there are animals out there in the winter wilderness who might like a little help getting through the last few weeks until spring.

I haven't done a crafty project in a while, and I thought, "It's about time you did one, people are getting bored over here."
So here goes... my first attempt to make my own jewelry. (Other than that one time I thought I was cool in 8th grade and made myself a button bracelet. Haha. I was lame.)
I have been lusting over this bracelet from…
