Just for Fun
Join us as we "bond
together" as creativity begins at home on this series of
Hands On Crafts for Kids. Enjoy a weekly feature using your
very own Family Craft Box filled with basic craft supplies.
Meet Franz Spohn bringing an artist's perspective to
imaginative projects that release your inner artist. Plus,
host Katie Hacker is joined by blogger Jenny Barnett Rohrs
sharing some hosting duties.
It's important to have
fun and today's projects are fun to make and to use. Katie
creates a fuzzy mustache board will tickle you. Franz and
his son, Axel play with paints, pencils, crayons, colors and
techniques to find new ways of expression. Jenny and Katie
let their imaginations go to create colorful pencil toppers.
From the Family Craft Box, add empty paper rolls and colored
paper to create a reversible playscape mat.
