Family Tips

Sleeping on the floor of a tent was fun when I was a kid, but I guess I am now officially old…. because sleeping on the ground about kills me know. I wake up stiff, sore and grumpy. That is why I LOVE the idea of this Double Tent Cot if you like to camp this would be a great investment!

Would you rather spend ONE night in a high end hotel… or get this and spend a whole summer under the stars??? You can only pick one.  I love a nice hotel but that is only one night, I love that with the same investment I would have this forever and create countless memories!

Trolls Party Ideas Easy Crafts For Kids

Trolls Party Ideas Easy Crafts For Kids

What you need:

  • Pencils ( I got mine at the dollar store)
  • Fake fur, about an 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch square for each pencil
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Colored felt
  • Wiggly Eyes

I got my fake fur from Joanns Fabric. I was able to buy a 3 inch strip for only $1.24 (they were having a 40% off sale).  This strip was MORE than what I needed. But they said they had a “minimum of cut of 3 inches”.  I was happy to pay the $1.24.  If I wanted it could easily provide me enough fur to make about 60 pencils.  This craft is so fun and LOW COST too!

Start by cutting a 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch square of fake fur for your Trolls hair. When you cut the fur, use your fingers to create a part to try and avoid cutting off the long hair.  Use the hot glue to wrap the fur around the pencil. If your child plans to use the pencil, remember to leave the eraser exposed.   Glue your eyes on, and a felt nose. Easy as that you are done!

Easy Fall Art Projects For Kids ~ that are low cost, easy, and turn out beautiful every time!

Fall craft projects for kids, LEAF RUBBING perfect for school age children, girl scout or boy scout craft ideas that are both educational and low cost

Easy Fall Art Projects For Kids ~ Leaf Rubbing

Leaf Rubbing can be done any time of the year (that you can find leaves) but we always do it in the Fall. I think it is because we see the beautiful colors they turn, thanks for mother nature and want to recreate that in an art project.  This is a great project to make with school age children or adults. Perfect for church groups or even girls scouts or boy scouts as they learn about different trees or plants.

To make you own leaf rubbing all you need is white  paper, I normally use a sturdy copy paper. Coloring crayons with the wrappers taken off, and scotch tape. You will also need an assortment of leaves fresh picked, so the ridges or lines show up good.

Tape your paper on one edge to the surface you are going to work on. In the photo below I have it taped to my side walk. But taping it to a table works just fine too.  I found that taping the paper helps the paper NOT shift so much and makes for a prettier finished picture.  Lay the leaves you have collected under the paper, put the paper on top.  Start rubbing the top of the paper using the length of your crayon as the coloring surface. Use as many colors as you want, watch a beautiful  image appear.
