We haven’t posted a fab find for a while so here’s one that we came across during the Summer. Read between the lines – when us moms were exhausted from running around with the kids and couldn’t think of any other activities to keep them busy and happy
Not sure about your kids, but ours LOVE arts and crafts. Maybe because they see their moms scrapbooking, card making, taking photos, sewing and constantly in the “craft room” of our homes when we have a bit of down time? Or maybe it’s just the crafty gene we’ve passed onto them?
At any rate, we came across Craft Caravan and thought it was an awesome concept. Monthly delivery of craft kits for kids? Just brilliant!
For a monthly fee, they do the shopping, put together the instructions for parents to supervise or provide some extra guidance and then mail it out to your kids at the end of the month.
Makes us moms (and dads) less stressed out gathering supplies, coming up with an original craft activity and trying to keep the kids away from using our craft supplies (not that stickers, ribbon and fabric can’t be used for their craft projects – just not the really GOOD stuff ).
These kits will definitely come in handy on rainy days, days when they don’t have school or any snow days they have in the upcoming colder months (there’s bound to be some in Canada!).
More fab finds to come. If you have any projects, websites or tutorials you’ve come across that would be useful for fabric lovers (or crafty types in general), please feel free to share them with us!
