Paper Bag Fox Craft for Kids

I'm sure you probably already know how much I love paper bag crafts! The options for making paper bag crafts is endless and maybe that's why I love them so much. That, and the fact that I love seeing my kids play pretend with the puppets with their cute voices. One of my sons asked me if we could make a fox craft this week and I jumped at the chance to whip out the paper bags. We created this Paper Bag Fox Craft for Kids and it turned out so cute!

Back to School Bus Craft with Box Tops

A big thank you to General Mills® for sponsoring today's post. One way we love to gear up for back to school is by collecting Box Tops to turn into my children's school. Our school has been able to use their Box Tops earnings in the last few years to make some great technology purchases and I have loved seeing firsthand how beneficial the program is. This year to get my kids excited for the new school year we decided to make a fun Back to School Bus Craft with Box Tops that couples as a fun and unique way for children to turn in their Box Tops at school.
