At this point in the season, we are dreaming of the end of winter and love to start planning spring break ideas just to get ourselves warm. Cameron has tried on every bathing suit she owns. Twice. And Kane has his suitcase at the ready. So the kids were super excited to try out a few new travel activities for OOLY!
When I was a child I could not wait to make valentines with my mom every year in early February. We would put all our materials out on the dining room table and spend an entire afternoon with doilies, clip art and rubber cement. I’m calling these valentines old school because there’s nothing digital involved with these fun love notes – just stickers, markers and a little creativity!
My favorite holiday is coming up, and I cannot wait!! I absolutely love Halloween because it’s a time of year when you can be as creative as you want. These midnight DIY trick or treat bags are easy to make and fun to decorate for kids of any age. I call them “midnight” because they require creating art on a black as night background. Or if you’re like me, you might find yourself crafting at the stroke of midnight to finish a project!
How do you start drawing a mandala? I often receive this question, and there are many techniques you can use to start designing mandalas. My name is Susanne Braun, I’m a Dutch mandala artist on instagram, and in this blog I will show you the steps I use to begin drawing your own unique mandala!
Whether the kids just need some independent time or we are looking for activities to take on the road, I like to have a few go-to projects that don’t require a lot of set up or clean up! And OOLY has the perfect supplies to help out. Take a peak at a few of the projects we’ve got cooking.
