Ideas for Kids

Moving on to my board of things kid related, here are 13 Kid Projects that I want to help my kiddos accomplish in 2013...

This headband holder from FunnyGirlDesigns - I think my girls could attempt to make something similar, AND it would solve our massive headband storage problem.  In theory.

Make bouncy balls, as shown at Curbly - because that's just cool:

I can't get over the cuteness of these tiny bow and arrows at The Brooding Hen - a rare project that is both cute to me and cool to my 10 year old:

Get Trevor to make a Skateboard Swing, like at CedarWorks:

For a summer project, make a ton of Tin Can Windsocks like Random Thoughts of a Supermom:

Make tons of puzzles and then put them together again and again... see details on the picture puzzle at Impress Your Kids:
father's day craft

Tell the kids what a Lava Lamp is, then make one - like S.L.Smith (I don't know why this picture got squished!)

Make Marble Races, then maybe they'll play with them for hours... tutorial at A Girl and A Glue Gun:

Picnic at the Drive-In - cutely seen at Oh, Hello Friend - I can only do the drive-in every other year or so, so I guess I have to go this year...

Drive in movie picnic..

Glowstick Ring toss - - this has GOT to be fun!  Over at Momma Did It:

Glow in the Dark Party {ring toss}

Martha Stewart shows how to make Pipe Cleaner Creatures:

First, drink a lot of pop - then, make a Pop Tab Headband like at Hairstyles for Girls:

Get a paint by number then blow it up to a gigantic size - genius!  See this at Lil Blue Boo:

Glow in the dark ring toss is genius!

Wonderful crafts. I can't wait to try some. Though I don't have kids, so I may need to borrow my cousins.


Nice. Pop tab ribbon headband for my girl:)


How cute is that little bow and arrow?!
