KidCreate Studio Fun

A few weeks ago KidCreate Studio in Eden Prairie invited a few bloggers and their children to come get to know them, hang out with them and make a Thanksgiving craft. Obviously Thanksgiving is over so I'm a little late writing about all the fun we had, but I'm sharing anyway because KidCreate Studio has some awesome Christmas crafts in their schedule right now. One of the first things you'll notice when you enter KidCreate Studio (besides all the artwork) is their birds, Arty and Crafty. They added some fun with their chirping throughout our creation time. The kids started in a circle on the mats and talked about what they were thankful for as well as learned the rules of the studio.

I printed Trisha's free Turkey In Disguise printable then Nutty and Tottie got out their markers and went to town. Tottie came up with all kinds of ideas and made me print FOUR turkeys. Nutty had a bit of a harder time and is so picky that she's still working on her second turkey (but she plans on doing more she says). Tottie disguised her turkeys as a sunflower, girl, boy, and also copied my nurse. Nutty's turkey in disguise was a ballerina and a (not quite finished) Mini Mouse. We used just markers to make our turkeys but if you … [Read more...]

5 Unique Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids

  Thanksgiving is coming up and it's time for crafts for the kids to do relating to the season.  While scouring the internet for inspiring ideas, I found 5 Thanksgiving crafts I thought were definitely unique.  I thought I'd share them with you: 1.  The Q-tip Turkey by Crafts-For-All-Seasons.  This little guy is perfect as a simple decoration or a place card holder for your table.  It does, however, look like a craft that will require adult assistance.     2.  M&M Turkey Favors by The Party Animal.  I could not get over how cute these looked!  Give them to friends or use them to decorate your Thanksgiving table.     3.  Golf Ball Turkey by Craft Klatch.  If your family loves golf these are perfect!  I've never seen anything like these and thought they were super cute!     4.  Mayflower Nut by Cultivated Lives.  What a great way to remind our kids that Thanksgiving isn't all about turkeys!  These little nut boats … [Read more...]
