Mom in Training: End of school means time for summer crafting fun!

End of school means time for summer crafting fun!

Now that schools been out for a few weeks and we are finally getting into a routine it's time to start on some fun craft projects with my kids. My daughter and I did one with an awesome watch kit from Oriental Trading the other day and it was a lot of fun.

The kit I got was called a Winter Watch Kit and it came with enough materials to make two watches which was perfect. Each set was in it's own little package with all the necessary pieces (it also included an extra parts bag) as well as an instruction sheet.

The instruction sheet gave you a pattern you could follow, or you could create your own. As you can see my daughter and I each did ours similar, but a little different on the backside where it came together. I thought the larger beads might be too big for my arm. All in all it was a very easy watch to make and now we have a set to wear together. She loved the time we spent together making them and couldn't wait to tell everyone at church Sunday that we had a matching set that we made.

My next project is going to be starting on school scrapbooks for my kids. I am completely in love with the School Year Paper Pack and the School Puffy Stickers that Oriental Trading carries. The papers are perfect for highlighting their school picture for the coordinating year. And because I got two sets I can do the same layout for both kids and get through them extra fast! The bright colors are easy to match with solid papers I already have so it will be very easy to coordinate with them. I can't wait to get them started and share my layouts with you!
