The original plan was to make valentines cards for the kids friends, we probably still will but the first piece has been turned into a diary.
I wrote a post over on my other blog about the process but I wanted to share with my followers here as well. It's nice to take a break from crochet once in a while, although to keep it yarn related you could always add a few scrap pieces to your paper. Technically we used yarn to stitch the pages in.
It's that time of year again... We should be showing the ones we love regularly just how much they mean to us. But sometimes it is nice to make a little more effort on Valentine's Day.
You don't have to go out and spend a fortune. These crafts are quick and easy to make. They also make good projects for children who want to do something for their friends.
These Hand Sewn Valentine's pouches are perfect to present little love notes in and are great for children and adults alike.
Children will love the simple design and with a little help they should be able to stitch them up themselves.
These Valentine's DIY Love Bugs can be made with things purchased from the dollar store and children will have so much fun decorating their own. One eye or two, pink or green, so many different options :)
With a video tutorial to help along the way you can't go wrong.
It's the school holidays here. The summer ones that seem to go on for years, but in reality are only 6 weeks long.
We have been making the most of it though, with a trip back home to Invercargill to spend time with family over Christmas and various other holiday activities.
One of these was 100% Summer where my 5 year old daughter made this dream catcher. I always thought they were quite difficult to make, but they are actually super simple.
When I got home I decided to look into all the Kids options on Creativebug, I have had a subscription for over a year now but haven't really put it to use or kept up with all the new video tutorials available.
I have made a list of the few activities I want to try with the kids.
