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:
- Fabric Crafting for Kids
- Learn and Play with Crafting Poms
- The Ultimate Guide to Crayon Art and Crafts
- Food Gets Crafty
- The Ultimate Kid’s Guide to Crafts and Activities Using Cups
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.
