I love making galaxy art. It always looks so pretty and is really easy to make. I made galaxy rocks that are really fun to make with kids. You can hide them in fun places for people to find or keep them for decorations. The galaxy rocks were my inspiration for this craft. These galaxy ornaments are not only super fun to make but they look so cool! This technique I used with my marble ornaments just added a galaxy flair. The perfect craft for kids or adults. They all turn out a little bit different. If you add more of one color they can be more of a colorful galaxy.
My daughter loves penguins more than any other animal in the world. For homeschool we did a whole unit study on penguins. I know a lot about penguins at this point. We also have done some fun crafts and made penguin treats. I have a bunch of those on the blog that you can check out. At the end of our penguin unit we did a fun day of winter penguin games including penguin ice hockey, marshmallow penguin soccer, sledding, and smash the ice. Some of the games I was planning on using sugar cubes but I just used what we had that was marshmallows and lucky charms. My daughter liked the lucky charms idea. Of course winter penguin games have to include some icy fun. Penguins love the ice and snow. These games are really easy for kids to play.
My daughter is obsessed with penguins. She has a bed full of penguin stuffed animals. We did a whole school unit study about penguins. I know everything there is to know about penguins! I get why she is obsessed with penguins because they are just the cutest animals ever. We also have made a bunch of penguin crafts and treats over the years. My all time favorite one I’ve made is walking penguin donuts. Check them out to make as well as these penguin plate crafts. The funny thing is we have only lived in warm weather. I get cold when there is a slight chill in the air and bundle up under blankets. My girl is part penguin but I am a wimp with the cold. I love visiting the snow but I don’t know if I’m cut out for visiting the penguins. I’m sure she will one day visit the penguins but I will just stick to penguin crafts and treats.
I love making simple treat bags for kids and class gifts. If you are making Christmas gifts for a group these snowman treat bags are really easy to make and adorable! You can add more embellishments to them or keep them simple as I did. These work for party favors, class parties, neighborhood gifts. Put candy, little gifts, or gift cards inside. I love snowman decorations. They are the cutest and easy to make. Plus, you only need a few materials and they are inexpensive.
What you need to make these snowman treat bags:
If there were snow around here it would be melted. I live in Florida and we don’t get snow around here. That is why I decided to make some melted snowman crafts because I only know melted snow. Plus, they remind me of Olaf melting in summer and I love that character! This is such a simple craft for kids of many ages to do. I won’t be doing it with the littlest one because he would be eating the fake snow but it was a fun one to do with my daughter.
Blue paper plate, you can also color a white plate blue
My daughter was obsessed with Frozen for the longest time. She was I think 3 when she first saw it. We watched it about a bazillion times and I have those songs from the movie burned into my memory. Luckily the music is good. She dressed up like Elsa and Anna for the longest time. Not just special occasions but going to the grocery store she was dressed up in costume. The funny thing is now she isn’t as into the girly stuff. She used to want an Elsa braid every day, for me that was just a side braid because I can’t make any braids. Now she never wants to wear her hair up. They grow up so fast! At that time I also started makin snowflake wands for parties. I have a post for those pretty wands. They go perfectly with these ice princess pipe cleaner crowns. We made different pipe cleaner crowns that my daughter loved and decided to make some for an ice princess. It is a perfect little winter craft for cold days.
Christmas is a time for fun, joy, and crafting! My daughter likes crafts that are quick and easy. She also loves anything to get in the holiday spirit. We made these cute little pipe cleaner snowflakes for a simple craft. I made them extra colorful with colorful beads. To look more snowy you can add silver, blue, or white beads. You just need a few things to make them
Materials for pipe cleaner snowflakes:
Silver, blue, or white pipe cleaners
First take a pipe cleaner and cut it into 3 pieces.
I love the marble trend trend and ornaments are the most fun to marble! There are different ways to marble but this technique is easy and fun to do with kids. This one I made solo but my daughter joined me for galaxy ornament decorating. The key with these diy marble ornaments is to have at least 3 colors. I would say 3-4 colors are best. Also to make sure it is rotated enough to cover the clear spots. I could see these being fun for a girls night with friends or play date with kids. Also, as a diy craft for a Christmas party.
Since we put up our Christmas tree early I got really inspired to make some ornaments. What I love about ornaments is you really can never have too many! The tree has plenty of room. It also is a great way to remember what your family was doing or into during a certain time period. Kids can decorate ornaments and each your you build on your collection of kids creations. I also like to make a few myself like this snowflake starfish ornament. We love by the beach and have beaches decor and I wanted to make a few ornaments to match our home. I’m not doing a whole theme for the tree because I grew up with a collective mix of ornaments and I want to continue that tradition. Next year maybe I will theme out a mini tree just for my own enjoyment! For now I let my daughter have free range of the tree. We have some Mardi Gras beads on there and random groupings of ornaments. It’s nice to have a few of my own little creations like this starfish snowflake ornament and then my daughter helped make a few others. Kids can easily help make this ornament. They could add extra colors for fun!
