I have been having a great time putting together this weeks post from The Crafty Crow. Cassi has such amazing website linking to heaps of great craft tutorials to enjoy with your little ones. Here are some of my favourites. Enjoy!

1. Rainbow Stars

Theseare such gorgeous Waldorf inspired window stars from Garden Mama.

2. Gluten Free Play Clay Beads

Play Clay is a lot of fun, you can mold it, dry it and paint it. Jessica Wilson has posted this cute tute on Craftzine.


3. Creation Station

This is what I need to do at our place. A Creation Station is perfect way to manage all the bits and bobs that come with kids crafty creations. They can even help keep it tidy when you are done! (fingers crossed!)

4. Matchbox Bugs

Aaaah so cute, these remind me of the Bug family that lived on the window sill in Sesame Street. Make your own Matchbox Bugs with this cute tute from Sydney Mum, Coloured Buttons.

10. Mark Your Shadow

I love this idea. It is so simple as well as educational – I imagine it would also be a lot of fun marking the shadows. Good project for a few kids and – yippee! – mess free!
