Picture this: the front door is blocked with snow, the kids are running around in their pajamas displaying their excitement for a snow day, and immediately plop down in front of the TV.

Or maybe you’ve spent your Saturday morning in 95-degree weather, watching herds of uncoordinated 6-year-olds following a soccer ball around a field. The second you bring the kids home, you find a trail of Gatorade bottles and kicked off soccer cleats, socks, and shin guards leading towards the PlayStation. You want to turn the TV off, but you dread the “are you kidding me?” looks that you know you’re going to receive the minute you step within a foot of the remote. Luckily, creative minds all over the world have come up with a few alternatives that are sure to keep the kids happy and excited to have artwork to display around the house.

This craft blog aims to give you step-by-step tutorials on how to keep the kids entertained and the creativity flowing. And who knows? Maybe the kid inside you will find some joy in these crafts as well.

    1. Start by separating the Froot Loops, this can be a great way to work on counting and colors for younger kids.

    2. Fill each finger with a different color of Froot Loop, and then fill the palm with Cheerios and tie the bottom of the glove.

    3. Cut out a few facial features for your turkey and glue onto the bag. You can either make your own eyes from constructions paper, or use googly eyes.
