Getting kids crafty December Blog Hop

Hello, I recently became a designer for get kids crafty. Each month there is a blog hop with a different theme showing ways to get kids crafty. You can check out the Facebook page here Get Kids Crafty Facebook page

I'm a stay at home mom right now and I'm crafty so why not get my kids more crafty.  I thought this would be an extra fun way to do it.

 You can use your own crafting supplies, kids crafty stuff or anything you can find to be crafty with.  I hope all these crafts inspire you to be crafty with your kids this holiday season.

This months theme is fireplace/s'mores theme. 

I decided to create a s'mores stick sign as a ornament for our tree with my son Riley. He's 2 1/2 so together we created a fun ornament as a Christmas gift for daddy! 

Our first step was to find a stick outside to make our s'mores sticks. So we went on an adventure outside to find that. 

"I found it Mommy!" 

I wrote out "Daddy, I love you s'more much" in white crayon so that Riley could use distress inks over it and create a resist on the crayon. Watercolor paint could also be used.  Riley used two different colors of distress inks that he picked himself and he just sponged them on the paper. We used Carved Pumpkin and Lucky Clover distress inks.

Then he added cotton balls to the end of the sticks to create marshmallows at the end of the sticks. He loved this step! 

Riley then helped me trim the paper around the saying we inked up. 

He then helped me punch holes in the paper to add Ribbon to attach the paper to the sticks. 

Here is the finished craft!

Get Kids Crafty May Blog Hop Gardening theme

It's that time of month again where I share a fun crafty project that I made with my kiddo Riley for Get Kids Crafty. Hello and thank you for joining us for the May Get Kids Crafty! blog hop! We are thrilled to have you! Our theme this month is gardening and our kids have created some AMAZING projects to share with you! We had a lot of fun creating our project this month. We made a bumble bee mobile.  Both my kids love the song bringing home my baby bumble bee. Especially my youngest Liam, it seems to usually calm him down when he's upset.  So we created this fun project to the theme of the song.      First we had to die cut our bees, Here is Riley playing with an already cut bee in the Big Shot machine.      Here is Riley turning the handle on the Big Shot machine to cut out all our bees. We had to do 16 in total one for the front and back as you will see in a little bit. Here is what the finished bee looks like and the die cut that we used from
