“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Kleenex but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #KleenexTarget http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO”
It's that time of year - - yep, sniffles abound! When not feeling great, cuddle up on the couch and watch movies, but what else? The kiddos like to stay occupied - bust out the couch crafting!
Yes, it's true. We battle sickness with crafts :) Crafting supplies and Kleenex, what more could you need?!
The trick it to keep it really simple - if you're not feeling that great, you don't want to tackle a complicated project. I thought fuzzy stick and pony beads were the perfect thing - easy to assemble with tons of freedom to make whatever you'd like. We started by making ornaments, but branched out in to other fun as well. Which was perfectly fine - roll with the flow!
Don't forget to have Kleenex nearby - - if you're like my house, whomever has the runny nose is carrying the box from room to room. You just can't be without it! You can even use THIS COUPON to get $1 off Kleenex 4 packs or larger (you know I love a deal!) when you shop at Target.
Things to note:
--I love using fuzzy sticks with pony beads - they are easier for younger children to thread on the beads than twine, etc
--They are easy to manipulate - when you bend them, they hold their shape easily.
--Tons of color choices out there!
--To make something longer, just twist the ends of two sticks together.
--Everyone loves this craft - from my 5 year old to my 11 year old, everyone had to make some.
A glimpse at the ornaments they made - they're already on the tree:
After making those, everyone started getting goofy with the fuzzy sticks - - mustaches all around...
And glasses and a mohawk - endless possibilities!
So grab your Kleenex (with COUPON! when purchased at Target), blanket, favorite movie, and crafting supplies, and hunker down and enjoy laying around :)
