Here's a cute and quick little project that you can set out for the kids to do when things get a little hectic. Visit Krokotak to download, print, and fold these paper owls that can be colored or left plain. They'd be a great Halloween decoration or mobile too.
With a little cardboard, string, and a straw you can make this rocket climbing toy in a jiffy and your kids will think you're a genius! Homemade toys are the best and this tutorial at Pink Stripey Socks is an easy one to get started with.
Grow Creative shares this beautiful art that she created just by following the natural contours on leaves she gathered. Young kids will love this just for the experience and older kids can experiment with details and textures. Displayed as a group, this would make a wonderful piece of seasonal artwork.
