Getting crafty on Spring Break
Here are some great projects to do with your kids over Spring Break:
Encourage your child’s inner artist by making large self-portraits on canvas. Bonus: You’ll have some pretty cool–but cheap–artwork for your home.
Make maracas from egg shells in this cheap and easy craft. Need more music in your home? Try making this guitar from a shoebox, these drums from oatmeal containers and a harmonica made from popsicle sticks.
And if you run through all of these ideas and the kids are still bored, click here for some activities you can start right away.
