I love this homemade puzzle cube at C.R.A.F.T.! Make it for yourself or to give as gifts, the tutorial is easy to understand and simple enough with pre-cut wood cubes from the craft store, a little glue, and paint.
It's always amazing how simple paper crafts can look so complicated. This paper planet tutorial at Babble Dabble Do will fascinate kids and adults with how easy they are to make and ooh and ahh at the spectacular results.
We're in the thick of summer and sometimes this is when boredom sets in but Salsa Pie has you covered with these wonderful craft videos for kids for PBS on YouTube. There are five so far, and they are all made from materials you probably already have at home. Also, each craft has extended play value; make a boat from plastic water bottles then go float it or make a 1920's flapper-style headband then go dancing the afternoon away.
