Hello!  Since it's Kid Week here at THURSDAYS,  I'd like to share some fun activities to keep those kiddos' hands busy.  I found so many great crafts, and managed to narrow it down to three of my favorites. I hope these ideas will capture the imagination of not only the kids in our lives, but us as well!  Happy Crafting!

Ice Cube Painting.

Painting on fabric with ice cubes seems like the perfect end-of-summer activity for kids! I came across this fun idea on Share & Remember and I love how beautifully the fabric turned out. It's as simple as adding watercolor paint to water in ice cube trays, freezing them, and heading outdoors for some fun!

Cardboard Instruments.

Kate, author of the fabulous blog Mini-eco dreams up some really great & kid-friendly crafts. One of my favorites is her interpretation of simple cardboard instruments.

Natural dye for homemade playdough.

I had to include one more craft from Mini-eco! In this post, Kate shares a great recipe for natural playdough, including how to add color from natural dyes extracted from strawberries, tumeric, oak tree bark, rose petals and others.
