Popsicle Stick Butterfly Kids Craft

After we made our Popsicle Stick Bee earlier this week my daughter asked if we could make a Butterfly to go with it just like we did with our Paper Bag Bee and Butterfly. "What a fabulous idea!" I told her and our cute and colorful Popsicle Stick Butterfly Kids Craft was born.

Fun with DohVinci + Enter to see your own Design on TV at KCA!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DohVinci for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Two things my kids can’t seem to get enough of lately is Play-Doh and Nickelodeon. Lucky for them, they have been getting a mixture of both with our new DohVinci Color Mixer. Right now you can submit your own DohVinci art design on their contest page for a chance to see it featured on TV at the 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards.

Simple and Cute Popsicle Stick Bee Kids Craft

We have been going full steam ahead with Bee Crafts the last couple weeks. We started with our Paper Bag Bee, then had fun making Balloon Print Bees and yesterday I shared a cute Tissue Paper Bee. I'm not exactly sure why I love them so much lately...but I think they are adorable so why not?! Today I think I'll finish off my bee obsession with this fun Mini Popsicle Stick Bee Kids Craft. So simple, colorful and so cute!

Tissue Paper Bee Kids Craft (with Free Pattern Printable)

We just got a slew of new books at our house from my daughter's preschool Scholastic book order. It's been a fun week of discovering new books and several of them have inspired crafts. One of the first books we read is called The Grumble Bee and it inspired this cute Tissue Paper Bee Kids Craft. I've included a free pattern for you to make the project even more simple.

Hatching Chick Craft (with Free Printable Pattern)

We have been having so much fun with Chick Crafts this year! I think this Chick Hatching Craft is the last one I'm going to share with you for the Easter season, but it might just be my most favorite one yet. Not only do you get to decorate an egg, but the chick slides in and out of the egg like it's hatching out. Too cute right?!

Bright and Cheerful Kid-Made Mother's Day Card

Of all the holidays in the year, we have definitely lacked in Mother's Day and Father's Day ideas here on I Heart Crafty Things. I'm hoping to remedy that this year with some fun ideas that kids can make for parents, grandparents aunts and uncles. Today I'm sharing this simple but adorable Mother's Day Card made out of one of our favorite materials, cupcake liners.

Cupcake Liner Mouse Kids Craft

My daughter and I made adorable little mice the other day and I'm excited to share them with you today. We've been working our way through the alphabet crafting with cupcake liners and this cute mouse craft turned out to be perfect for the letter M. They are super simple to make and are adorable!
