I have my own rules for crafts. I have to make them up or at least give a whole new spin to old ideas--obviously they can't be copyrighted but I also don't want something that's been done a zillion times. They need to be easy to make--I am craft challenged so if I can make it, anyone can. They need to use readily available stuff. And they have to be cute or useful or both. Other wise, why bother?
So here we are at 9:00 pm Wed making crafts. Usually someone besides myself either makes it according to my directions or at least tries it with me. Sometimes several kids all make it and we compare the unique spin each child gives it.
I decided on a pillow made from a hand towel and decorated with buttons and ribbons to go with a chapter/quiz "What's Your Bedroom Say About You?" Jessica volunteered to take the idea and supplies and run with it. She used her machine but it could be done by hand.
The chapter/quiz about learning styles is going to have a flower pen (overused idea) and a flowerpot as a penholder.
Adam was grumbling a bit that the pictures of him would all be of him making flowers.
Flowers from craft foam to go on the pots I painted earlier today.
