My 11 year old Esther loves crafts. Dear friends of mine have taught her crocheting, and beading. She spends a few hours getting instructions, and then she takes off creating all kinds of fantastic scarves, doll clothes, and coasters. To keep her busy and occupied with new ideas I have started a board on Pinterest where I pin all things crafty for her.
Here are some of my pins. You might find you have some extra time this summer to create new things.
For the T-shirt: Use foil underneath, draw with bleach pen, wait 30 minutes then wash. Oh the possibilities!
For the foot print: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup (give or take) water. Knead until dough forms. Make impression. Bake at 200 for 3 hours.
The washcloth is just a simple crocheting project, but so pretty. This might give you a head-start on Christmas or the next baby shower. You can find the tutorial here.
