This craft was originally shared over at Brassy Apple. I'm excited to share the tutorial with you here as well. We love washi tape crafts at our house! When I get the washi tape out my daughter jumps with excitement. Our collection has grown to consume a gallon sized ziplock bag...I know, I need to stop. My daughter loves to take them all out of the bag, stack them in different ways and comment about their beautiful colors and designs. Since we have been reading some books about snakes lately we decided to make a simple Cardboard Roll Snake Craft that uses washi tape.

On our latest trip to the library we picked up Leo the Lightning Bug. It's a darling story about having confidence and believing in yourself. As a child I struggled with my own self-confidence so I love reading books to my children that act as a reminder for them to believe in themselves and their abilities. I especially love the concept in this book about "practicing" since we shouldn't expect ourselves to excel in all things on our first try. We made this cute Lightning Bug Craft to go along with the story.

I love making crafts with my kids that can be interactive for pretend play or that we can use to reenact a story that we've just read. I came across some darling Cereal Box Turkeys over at Plum Pudding recently and I loved them. I decided to make more of a kid-friendly version that my children could help me with and we are using them as Turkey Puppets. We used one of my favorite crafting materials to make them also, cupcake liners.

The one thing that's odd about about being a blogger is the fact that I have to be a step ahead in my holidays, always planning and preparing way in advance for crafts I want to do. So while Halloween isn't until next week, I already feel Halloween'ed out and I'm beyond excited to move on to Thanksgiving. A little sad, I know, but I really don't mind since I love crafting so much. That being said, we've already made a trip to the library this week and picked up some of our favorite Thanksgiving books and today we made this adorable Paper Plate Turkey.

I recently fell in love with the awesome DIY Spider Ring at Fantastic Fun and Learning. My daughter has been fascinated with rings lately so after seeing the spider ring I made one for her and she loved it! In fact, she loved it so much that I decided to make a Turkey version of the ring.
