I tried out the Art Bin Craft Caddy to help my organization, and I’m very happy with it. I was able to take the various items that usually clutter the table next to my crochet/knit spot and fit them all into the caddy in a neat fashion.

I bought this Magnetic Mini Tile Art kit for the girls. They each made 5 tiles for Christmas presents. I found the kit for about $11 on Amazon, so it was really a great deal! We really liked that the girls could design their own tiles to make them personalized.

The kit comes with 10 tiles, a magnet sheet with 10 pre-cut sticky-back squares to go on the back of the magnets, 6 colors of paint, and a paint brush. All you need to provide yourself is a pencil. (more…)

Diamond Dotz are fun for kids, too!

I had so much fun making my Diamond Dotz canvas that I was sure these would be craft kits kids would like too. Turns out I was right, Diamond Dotz are a big hit with the girls. I wasn’t sure if their attention span would last, but Kyla and Vada found it so fun that they finished them in a couple of days. There are also some smaller kits that can be done in one sitting if you don’t have the time or the space for a larger/longer project. So if you are looking for craft kits kids would like, look no further than Diamond Dotz!

Origami Cicada – this bug won’t bug you at all!

Folding an Origami Cicada the easy way!

These origami cicadas make no sound at all, they just sit quietly and look pretty. With my simple instructions for folding an Origami Cicada the easy way, you can fold your own origami cicada in no time at all. It’s a simple pattern I think looks best with paper that is a different color on each side. My dad who currently lives in Japan says that Japanese children love to catch cicadas and collect their empty shells in the summer. I haven’t seen to many cicadas here in New Jersey lately, so I say, “if you can’t catch them, fold your own!” Let’s relax, have a bit of fun, and start folding an origami cicada the easy way!

Make a post card using a Cricut

That’s exactly what I did for a dear friend of mine who put out a request on Facebook  – her child’s 4th grade class was trying to get post cards from all 50 states but they were missing a few. One of the missing states was NJ, where I happen to live. Of course I told her I would be happy to help out. I thought about it and decided I could to make a post card using a Cricut myself.

Quality and creativity go hand in hand with Canvas Art kits from Royal & Langnickel. These art kits come with a printed canvas and markers or paint. I got 2 of each for the girls to try out, though they would be suitable for adults as well (I was a little jealous that I didn’t have any to paint myself!)

Cool String Art by Lori Wenger is full of some of the neatest string art pieces you will ever see. They are not the spirograph-type designs I remember from my youth, but more random and fun.

The Origami Crane a favorite piece of origami for all, me included. The Origami Crane is a slightly challenging piece, but take your time, line up your folds neatly and it will turn out great! Here are step by step instructions to help you succeed.

Origami Crane from Jessie At Home

Many believe if you fold 1000 cranes you will get a wish. Personally, I love to fold them from everything I can! I have been known to fold them from cloth napkins at restaurants, programs at events, and little bits of scrap paper. They are just so fun to make, the Origami Crane a favorite piece of origami for you too?

Start the Crane with the Bird Base. The split section should be pointing down as shown. (more…)
