Recently, my friend Caroline (who has been a contributor here at The Southern Institute for quite some time) began working for PBS Parents website, creating an awesome video series called Crafts for Kids. Have you seen them?
Caroline has a lovely way of showing how to encourage creativity in your children. These videos are fun, quick, and totally doable! Watch out Martha Stewart, because most of us moms don’t have the energy to round up a gazillion items or make trips to the hobby store to stock up on supplies. We need fun projects that can be made with things that we already have around the house. That’s what the Crafts for Kids videos give us. One week there was a DIY Rocket…
Another week, she shared a DIY Water Bottle Boat. The kids and I made some of our own and took them to the local creek. The water was a bit low that day, but we still had fun with them.
You can subscribe to the Youtube channel or Salsa Pie Blog to keep see when the weekly Crafts for Kids videos come out. You’ll love them!
