As my daughter gets older we devote even more time to crafts because she loves them so much. It's fun to see her skill level increase and her ability to move on to more complex crafts.
One of my favorite spots in our local toy shoppe is the art section and today we picked up a nice set of triangular crayons by Melissa & Doug.
So, what little time that I do spend on the computer is usually in my google reader... glancing at the magic that happens at these wonderful blogs below:
Family Chic: Camilla brings a beautiful presentation to the table with natural crafts that most anyone can make at home, usually with things that you may already have in your craft and kitchen stash. I made her cupcake liner gift toppers recently for my daughter's birthday. Next I want to make the apple candlesticks. I already have red beeswax candlesticks that Sophie picked out for my husband and I for our anniversary recently. I think I will pair them with green apples for a really pretty red and green combo.
Frugal Family Fun Blog: Valerie is a true inspiration and her blog showcases so many great and simple crafts to do with your little ones. I can't wait to get some contact paper so we can try the stunning stained glass sculpture.
Pink and Green Mama Blog: Marylea has so many fun and educational ideas for her kiddos. I want to make the ABC Box for Sophie. It's such a great idea for a fun way to further language development. I also love her pine cone elves!
Childhood101: Several different ladies contribute to this blog and it's a refreshing and positive place to go. I love every post, especially these: Our Toddler Friendly Sewing Basket and The Further Adventures of Our Toddler Sewing Basket.
Made by Joel: I just recently found this blog and I think it's great. Joel is a dad of twins who clearly loves his kids and brings a whole world of creativity to them! His Flower Building Toy makes me want to become a master woodworker just so I can make one too.
Journal of Home Education: While this is not precisely a craft blog, Heather does share some fun crafty activities and I enjoy her web site as a whole. It sends a positive and inspiring message about homeschooling. I particularly enjoy her Pick a Project and A Garden in January.
Did I miss any? Let me know if you have any favorites to check out. My google reader is kind of hungry.
