This past Christmas I bought my daughter a mermaid tail blanket. She can hardly leave anywhere without it. She loves sleeping in it and wearing it around the house, pretending to be a mermaid. I knew with her love of mermaids she would adore this wooden spoon mermaid craft. Now she has some little mermaid friends to play pretend with and put on fun puppet shows for me. If you have mermaid fans at your house, they are going to love this simple mermaid craft too!

Since the school year is almost over you might be starting to think about fun teacher appreciation gifts to give to your child's teacher to say thank you for a great year. I was looking at some fun yellow party favor bags in my craft closet and decided they would be perfect for holding candy or a gift card for a teacher gift. For a special twist, we turned them into a cute bee DIY teacher gift bag that is super simple to make and is just perfect for a simple candy gift or a gift card. I've also including a printable label that reads Thank you for "BEE-ING "a great teacher to complete this adorable teacher gift.

We've been looking for fun ways to use up all of our extra sticks after making our cute owl craft the other day. My daughter picked up one stick we had gathered that had a Y-shape on the end and she observed "Hey, this looks like ladybug antennae." She is so clever! So we used up some of our leftover sticks and made this adorable ladybug stick craft for kids. The stick antennae add such a fun touch to the ladybug craft. Your kids are going to have so much fun hunting for special Y-shaped sticks and then making this cute ladybug!

Some people are ridiculously in love with cats or shoes, but me...you can call me the crazy owl lady. I love, love owls and owl crafts! The kids craft stars challenge this month is all about sticks so after collecting a few handfuls we turned them into my most favorite thing of course, an owl. This stick owl craft for kids is so fun since it is made almost entirely of nature elements. You can create an entire afternoon full of fun by going on a nature walk to collect all of your supplies and then come home to make this adorable owl craft.

I feel the same way about foam cups as I do about paper plates. You can pretty much make any kind of animal you can think of out of them. Our collection of foam cup crafts keeps growing and our latest is this super cute foam cup bee craft. It makes a perfect kids craft for spring or summer time or when learning all about bees.
