I love to do creative things like taking pictures, scrapbooking, and playing around with images. I’m also a teacher, so you would think that this mix would give me a head start when it comes to crafts, but it doesn’t. It would be nice to have more of a knack for doing crafts with my kids, but I love that my son gets to do all of that at preschool and comes home with a nice complete craft that I didn’t have to come up with or cut supplies for. I will admit I love painting with the kids and if it wasn’t for the mess, I’d love it even more. So my plan is to start by attempting some simple crafts and working my way up from there.
There are some great ideas in the magazines we get and I also love sites that give easy crafts and activities. Then there’s finding the craft supplies. Local craft stores are one way to go, but I’m always up for the nice convenient option of ordering online, like at factorydirectcraft.com. If you’re one of those parents that love to do crafts (good for you and your creative energies!) you’re probably always looking for kids craft supplies. I would guess that having a good supply of them means that you can come up with a craft project easily like you would a new recipe.
So I could use a little help here. Any ideas for some simple and fun projects? What websites do you like to use for craft ideas? What supplies should I always have on hand?
