How to create a 4th of July placemat for your 4th of July picnic. #4thofjulycrafts

We are excited to bring you a couple new Holiday crafts this week.  My son is out of school until he starts Kindergarten in Sepetember, so doing crafts is always a joy for us.  It is a great time to sit down with him and spend some one on one time.  Having a little sister now, he doesn’t get as much time with me as he used to. I remember doing paper weave crafts when I was younger, and thought this {Read More}

Father’s Day Gum Wrapper

Father's Day Gift Idea from fivelittlechefs.com #fathersday

I have already told you my girls LOVE planning for holiday’s. The day after Mother’s Day they started planning for Father’s Day! One thing they all decided is that Dad likes gum. He always has a pack in his car, on his dresser and in his church bag. My three year old now shares the love of gum (much to my dismay) and knows where to search to get a piece when she wants one. Dad doesn’t like this so {Read More}

How to make an easy Hummingbird Feeder for kids

How to make a hummingbird feeder from recycled objects

Hummingbirds are so fun to watch. Making your own Hummingbird Feeder is actually a lot easier then I anticipated. It can be done with recycled containers! The next time you or your kids drink anything out of a plastic bottle that has a screw on cap keep it and put it aside for this project. The next time you eat something out of a short squatty plastic container with a lid keep it and put it aside for this project. {Read More}

How To Make A Spaceship from an Egg

Using a large plastic egg, some colored paper, popsicle sticks and glue you can make a spaceship like Meet The Robinsons, Little Einsteins, The Jetsons.

One day while perusing the craft store I discovered a large egg. I thought surely there must be something fun that I can do with this, so I bought it. They come in a few different colors, but I chose the yellow. After some brainstorming I thought what if we made a spaceship. There are many different kinds that have an egg or a dome shape that kids who watch movies are aware of such as Little Einsteins, The Jetsons {Read More}

Christmas Tags using the Cricut Mini

Easy christmas tag using the cricut from fivelittlechefs.com #christmastags #cricut #kidscrafts

There are so many ways to dress up a present. We thought it would be fun to create a couple tags using the Cricut Mini. The Cricut has so many cartridges and options but we used the basic shapes that came free with the machine. We discovered the machine is easy for kids to use. They are able to visually see where the shape will be cut by reading the grid on the screen and on the mat. For the {Read More}

Etched Ceramic Loaf Pan

Etched Ceramic Loaf Pan from fivelittlechefs.com #glassetching

Remember the Easy Striped Glass Vase? Today I’m sharing something similar. I found these cute mini loaf pans at a craft store. They were a solid red color. I don’t mind the red but it was a little plain. I decided to take some glass etching paint and a stencil and see if I could make it a little more interesting. I chose snowflakes because snow is not as seasonal as a christmas icon. Materials Martha Stewart Glass Etching kit {Read More}
