craft tuesday {easy kids crafts}

Happy Tuesday! I’ve decided it’s time to try something new so Craft Tuesday was born! Normally on Tuesdays (though few and far between) I post tutorials, but in my desire to be a more consistent blogger, I thought doing a Craft Tuesday would be more appropriate. Sometimes that will be a tutorial, sometimes crafty inspiration and sometimes I’ll share what’s inspiring me in the craft world. I hope you’ll join me on Tuesdays for some craft inspiration!

A few weeks back I journeyed to one of my favorite places – Hobby Lobby – with one of my best friends Leslie. We walked the aisles browsing when I came across the unfinished wood section. Little E was partial to the dinosaur so I got that for him and a birdhouse for Big E. Painting is one of my kids favorite crafts so getting these was pretty much a no-brainer. Once Big E got home from school we busted out the acrylic paint and they got started.

What easy craft projects do your kids enjoy??
