Kids Art: Painted Paper Weaving

Painted Paper Weaving on www.busymommymedia.com

Remember doing paper weaving art projects as a kid? They were always so much fun (even for me as someone with *ahem* absolutely no artistic ability). This painted paper weaving project is a fun twist on a classic and you can do it with materials that you probably already have at home. Older kids will love creating something unique. Younger kids can even join the fun by helping choose colors and practicing their fine motor skills. This simple kids art project is perfect for keeping kids busy and the final product looks great in a frame.

Holiday Craft: Toilet Paper Roll Ornaments

Isn’t it fun to push a spoon into the seam of a pre-made biscuit dough container and watch it pop into a spiral?

That was the inspiration for this fun and easy ornament craft. Well that, and the fact that we started going through a lot more toilet paper once my daughter potty trained. I felt I had to do something with all those rolls.

Though my daughter and I originally made these to hang in her room, they can also make gorgeous holiday ornaments.
