The Ultimate Guide to 50 Craft Supplies

I am happy to be partnering with 50 other bloggers to bring you the Ultimate Guide to Craft Supplies. Each blogger has taken a craft supply and created a guide for crafting with that supply. The project started on January 1st with Craftulate’s guide of Googly Eyes.

A sample of the guides you won’t want to miss:

You can see the entire list on The Ultimate Guide to 50 Craft Materials!

I chose socks. This may seem odd, but once you see some of the cute things you can do with them, you’ll love it! I have rounded up over 40 craft ideas to put those mate-less socks to use. Or those super cute holiday socks that you found on clearance for 10 cents.

These crafts can be made with kids, but there is a wide range of skills required. I aimed to make this a guide you can return to again and again.

5 Super Simple Last Minute Valentine’s Day Activities

5 Super Simple Last Minute Valentine's Day Activities for Kids from Vicki-Arnold.com

Did you realize that Valentine’s Day is this coming Friday? If my kids weren’t constantly reminding me to sign up for our homeschool group’s party, I might have forgotten. I’m not much on holidays, aside from Thanksgiving and December.

I’ve been working on some things around here and in the process I rounded up a few super simple activities to try with my kids this week. I thought I’d share them with you, too. And tomorrow, you are getting my first C post (I’m really rocking this routine, aren’t I? <insert eyeroll here>).

Most of these came from my fellow Kid Blogger Network bloggers. You should see those Pinterest boards! No, really, go look. And then look at this board, too. You’re welcome.

The blog Hogar-Mujer has these really cute heart bookmarks that are easy to make, but the blog is in a foreign language so I don’t know if I have permission to share one of their photos or not. So, you will just have to head over and see the photo tutorial for yourself.

This final one may not qualify as “super simple” so I am just including it here as a bonus. I am hoping to have some puffy paint left to make these DIY window clings from The Connections We Share.
