A little tipsy has been sharing Make a Memory ideas all summer. One of the latest ideas actually comes from Oopsey Daisy and it is for a Twinkie Party. It is such a cute idea and could really be morphed into so many other ideas. Anything that makes a memory is always fun :-)
This next idea is not so much a craft idea as really good information. I Heart Crafty Things wrote a great post on how to get your Three year old interested in crafts. I think it can apply to just about any kid; any age - she shares some great tips. I'm really posting this for my benifit so I can find it later but thought you all might enjoy reading it too!
Nothing But Country and loved it. I also enjoyed Shel Silverstein as a kid so reading one of his cute poems makes it even better. She does give a template/download if you happen to be a photoshop person. I'm not but I do have some Creative memory software that I think I could use to create something similiar :-)
Shhhhhh . . .don't tell my kids but I think I just found a Christmas gift idea for them! Dukes and Duchesses shoes a simple idea for Fort Making Kits. I love the idea - something so simple could create hours and hours of fun :- )
Dukes and Duchesses also shares a great way to make reusable gift tags for Christmas. I always seem to forget about the tags and end up writing the name in the corner. I really like this idea though!
This next idea is one I saw awhile ago and don't think I shared so I wanted to share it now. I heart Organizing shared a really cute idea for making an Art Caddy for your kids. I like the simplicity of it and just the over all look. Such an easy idea, yet it makes such a big impact :-)
Peas in a Pod and REALLY like it. It is inexpensive and would be easy to make.
Away we go . . . fits the bill. Wouldn't it make an adorable baby shower gift - something totally unique and homemade? I don't own a silloutte or anything but . . someone I know does so I could probably get a little help cutting out some letters :-)
Lines Across My Face shares all kinds of Ladybug ideas and some books too. (One year, we went to a historical village and the buildings appears to be moving - they were covered completly in Ladybugs - it was gross!)
The Idea Room for Apple Pops. These would also be cute at a birthday party or if you are working with your child at home and doing an Apple Unit :-)
I haven't shown a ton of new recipe ideas on here lately (or at least I feel like I haven't) but when I saw this recipe for Peanut Butter Oreo Ice Cream Pie over at Kevin and Amanda, I had to share. I almost got up and went and made this as soon as I read the recipe . . .except I didn't have any Oreos . . .that will be remedied quickly!
For awhile, I was seeing the Subway Art all over the place; than it kinda disappeared. Until today. I saw this great idea for a DIY "Eye" chart over at From Gardners to Bergers and just love the idea. I also love that she gives a link to make your own AND if you look close, when she created her picture wall, she included a frame around the thermestat. What a great idea.
I hope you have enjoyed this weeks features :-) I will admit, I did see one Halloween idea AND one Christmas Idea but I held off posting those yet . . .I think I need to wait until September LOL
