May Arts - Summer Kids Crafts

I"m back to a normal posting schedule, hopefully!  Nothing to do now but wait for the Ribbon Lady's decisions on the final DT picks.  Good luck to everyone who is in the final round!!  Lucky Ribbon Lady is at CHA in Chicago this weekend.  Sure hoping they bring it back down south soon.

Ok...I've got a fun way to keep the kids busy for a little while and a way to help beat the heat too.  Head over the May Arts blog for two fun tutorials on making paper fans.  One for the older kids (and mom!) and one for little ones to help with.  Both use things you already have around the house.

The first one is nice enough to give as a gift, I think!  Perfect for these "dog days of summer" or to file away for Mother's Day and birthday gift ideas.   Be sure to tell the Ribbon Lady what you think.

I'll be back with this month's treat for you followers...I didn't forget!  ;-)  It's been an interesting week, doctors talking about knee replacements and such...I think not!!  We'll go the PT and brace way first, right? 
Pin It!
