For my Pheonix Comicon cosplay, I didn’t want to spend $20+ on a shirt I was sure I could make. So, instead, I painted the shirt design and this is how I did it:
Hi everyone. 🙂 Last weekend I hosted a Steampunk Disney party. I made some pretty awesome decorations so I decided I would share how to make some of them.
I made tinkerbell shadows to decorate the lightswitches in my house. They were surprisingly easy once you got past the drawing.
Hello! A few days ago my siblings and I did a fun project that made them occupied for hours afterwards. It’s really simple and you can have a lot of fun out of it. We made water bottle tornados. They loved to watch the sparkles swirl around.
All you need is a (water) bottle, water and sparkles. We made a plastic water bottle one and a glass Jones bottle one for the older kids, Reese, who is twelve and still wanted to participate.
How are you today? It’s the first of May, can you believe it? It is also 2 holidays today. A US holiday, National Day of Prayer and a Pagan holiday, Beltane-Samhain. Many of you are likely asking, ‘Are you Pagan?’ I am not a Pagan, I just like to respect all religions. So if you are a Pagan or a Wicca, good for you… Please enjoy today.
Either way, there are not a lot of crafts or recipes I can do for either one, so instead I’ll make a Cinco de Mayo craft for you today, Easter Egg Maracas. If you have some of those plastic eggs leftover, suddenly you have a new project. If not, I’m sure they are on sale just about everywhere.
Today I am posting my second craft… Easter bunny masks. I suppose they could be worn anytime but it just so happens that tomorrow is Easter! 🙂 Whether or not you celebrate Jesus’s resurrection or the candy and egg traditions that have come to be, hopefully you can find some enjoyment out of these masks. The bunny masks are super easy and fun for kids to help you make.
All of the materials you likely have on hand. You’ll need at least one paper plate, some crayons, a pair of scissors, a tapestry needle with some thread of any color, and some glue (I like Elmer’s but any will work).
So here is my first craft post… an afikomen bag. For those of you who do not know, afikomen is special matzah. The word itself means dessert and the passover seder is not finished until the afikomen, which is hidden, is found usually by the younger kids. The afikomen bag is what holds the matzah so you can hide it.
Now that the little lesson is over…. onto making this. So this is fun to do with your kids but it is easier if you do it with them one on one. This does require a little kid with a needle so be sure to go through with them what not to do with a needle (like poking themselves or others with the sharp point)
All you need is a piece of felt, a tapestry needle, some thread and some sequins or form of decoration and glue to put it on. That’s it!
