Kids Crafts with Sara & Fleur

Whether you're a teacher or a parent with children you know how much kids like to create things.
This week we've dedicated entirely to the art of crafting with/for kids.

A few of our design team members have created some projects that you are definitely going to want to try out with your own children.

Today we have designers Sara & Fleur sharing their talents with us.

"TIc Tac Toe" Tin

I have loved crafting since I was a kid so its only natural for my get my son involved in crafts!  He loves doing things on his own and we enjoy creating together.
Recently we made this Tic Tac Toe game using Imaginisce products and a old tin! 

First we selected our papers from the Outdoor Adventures Collection and cut pieces for the sides of the tin (it was his idea to round the corners!).  Then we found a great chipboard sticker pieces for the top of the tin. 
Then the fun part started when we began to make our playing pieces.  He loves blue so he wanted to make his blue and I opted for red.  These little mini magnets are so easy to make with the iTop and Magnet Daddies!
This little tin sits on our kitchen counter and its easy to play a few games while making dinner or jotting down my grocery list.

Portable Art Kit
My youngest son is forever making up games, creating characters and making cards for them, his creativity is amazing.  He always wants to take some pencils and paper when we go out in the car so he can make some cards or draw something so I made him a portable art kit.  These are super easy to make and in fact he helped me make them.  

First glue 2 pieces of 12x12 paper together to make it stronger then score at 4” to fold up and make the pockets.  

I decided to make the pockets large enough to hold index cards so scored and folded them to that size and made sure I had enough of a flap left to add a large Brad Daddie and twine to keep the folder closed.  After I made his we made a few more for his friends.

Supplies: Patterned Paper – Imaginisce Outdoor Adventure, Childhood Memories, Good Dog and Endless Summer collections, Tool – I-Top, Imaginisce Brad Daddies in large, Imaginisce Paper Punch large, Twine – The Twinery


Join us again tomorrow for some more fabulous project ideas!
