I’ve started organizing craft play dates with my kid’s friends. It’s a time that they can play and have fun but is somewhat structured too so it’s not total chaos. The kids love it and get to go home with something that they made.
Most of the craft supplies I’ve been buying I get from Oriental Trading Company. I used to go to Michaels but found that the prices at Oriental Trading Company can’t be beat. You have to buy them in packs of 12. But this gives us extra for friends to come over (or if we mess up on one.) And for 12 they are usually around $5 or $6. That’s a pretty good deal!
Each packet comes with directions so you can make it exactly like the directions say to, or you can personalize it a little and make it look a little different.
Have fun, enjoy your children and happy crafting!
