These DIY necklaces also make the perfect homemade gifts for moms and teachers. Handmade gifts, especially jewelry, is an easy gift idea for Mother’s Day that mom will definitely love.
How do your kids create their happy? My boys are rough and tumble boys all the way. Climbing, skateboarding, biking, jumping, playing in the dirt; you name it, they will do it! But they also LOVE art and creating projects. They take so much pride in their artwork and spend hours painting and making crafts.
OOLY’s Lil’ Poster Paint Pods offer a fantastic palette of colors fit for a cosmic space theme! I loved the neon colors in this set, they’ve made it possible to create fantastical, “galactical” planets as a great paper mache project. These brightly colored planets would make great props for a school project, a space themed birthday party or just to hang in a child’s bedroom! And the perfect accompaniment to the D.I.Y Alien and Spacecraft from my previous blog.
I LOVE art supplies. I can’t get enough of them. As you can see from my Instagram page, the only thing I love more than art supplies is rainbows. When it comes to taking my art supplies on the go, it’s important for me to have a carrying case that’s not too big or too small, but something just right. Something Goldilocks would approve of. I really didn’t think such a case existed until I saw the OOLY Mighty Pouch. I can’t believe how much I can fit into this expandable case. I’m often taking supplies on the go for both myself and my 6-year-old so this pouch works great for both of us. You can even fit a mini iPad inside! While I love the bright colors that the Mighty Pouch comes in, I thought it would be fun to create a personalized pencil pouch and make it more my own. Below are a few ways to personalize your own Mighty Pouch!
We decided to acknowledge some of the special people in our children’s lives who have helped them grow and learn by giving them plants, decorative flower pots, and signed flags that say “Thank you for helping me to grow!” This fun craft makes a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or even a teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week.
