Hey Everyone! Pearl and I show you how to make snow globes today on Kid Crafts. Now, I know a lot of you claim to not be crafty. I hear it all the time. “I’m sooo not crafty.” “I do not have one crafty bone in my body…” etc. etc. You are my favorite kind of people. Because you are so easy to prove wrong! Stop judging yourself, watch this video, grab a thing, and glue it to the inside of a mason jar. Don’t overthink it. The glitter stays in the jar of course, so there’s no mess. And the glitter storm- the glitter storm is the magical moment that you deserve. xo
Hey Homies! This week on Kid Crafts the girls and I made glitter magnets. Yes, that’s right. I let them openly craft with glitter in the dining room- PIGS MUST BE FLYING UPSIDE DOWN IN THE COLD VALLEY OF HELL! Seriously, they had so much fun though, and the result are these beautiful little jewel-like magnets. Check it out and let me know how yours turn out! What fun things have you and your kids ben making? Let us know in the comments! xo
This week on Kid Crafts: Sock Donuts! The girls and I rounded up some brown socks and made some sweet plush toys. A super easy afternoon craft (that actually BURNS calories if you think about it!) Check out our video here to learn how we did it!
Hey Party People! So I’m experimenting with my new Canon 80D and decided to make a short video about Smalls’ Madeline Party. I’m loving the quality of the DSLR- a serious upgrade from my iPad! What do you think? Oh, and what do you think of the party?! I’ve just upgraded my sound situation as well, so stay tuned for bigger and better videos!
You guys! The girls and I show you how to make EMOJI JARS on our latest episode of Kid Crafts! Too cute!! I, of course went for a laugh-cry emoji because I feel like this is my motherhood baseline. Which emoji are you feelin’ today?

Summer is still in full swing over here– hope you’re all enjoying yours! Today on Kid Crafts we’ve got a super sweet popsicle stick memory game that you can make with your kids.
