Welcome! Today we kick off a very special two weeks of crafty fun for you, our Kids Crafts 101. I got together with a total of 14 WONDERFUL Crafty Bloggers from around the world, to bring you daily crafty inspiration – the brief for our ideas was simple: make it fun, make it for kids and make it using “standard crafty materials” – i.e. the sort of things you should have in your basic craft box and recycling box – TP Roll Tubes (of course), Egg Cartons, Paper, Paint, Scrap Fabrics, Scissors, Glue etc. So come what may – be it a Snow Day, a rainy day.. or simple one of those loooong long Summer afternoons and you need a lovely craft for you and the kids, then come back to this set of fantastic crafts to browse and be inspired by.
But… we are NOT sharing these crafts with you ALL AT ONCE. We are bring you one day.. I encourage you to come back each day and see what lovely new every day craft we have for you. I will up date this page for you daily, with new links to the next idea. The next two weeks will be a lot of crafty fun!! And will make for a great craft ideas for kids resource whatever your need or weather!

TP Roll Little Red Riding Hood – you will mainly need TP Rolls and Fabric Scraps… but rummage around your craft box for what other goodies you can find!
An Arty Crafty exploration – check out these wonderful Vegetable Prints and make this great pillow (would make alovely gift too). You will need paints, vegetables and plain fabric (and old pillow case could work well!).
