Kids Crafts 1-2-3
Encouraging creativity without breaking the bank
Spinrite Yarns

Welcome to the exciting and entertaining world of crafting with children and Kids Crafts 1-2-3! There are so many wonderful things that can come from crafting with children of all ages. From babies to tweens and everything in-between, there are opportunities for bonding and expanding creativity. Kids Crafts 1-2-3 has something for a broad age range of children. Don't overlook a project for a toddler that is labeled for a tween! With a few tweaks in skill level, most of these projects could easily work for any age group.

In Our Twelfth Issue

I can not believe that my oldest child is about to start kindergarten this fall. Talk about blowing your mind out. Seems like just yesterday she was finger-painting with food-coloring dyed pudding, eating more than painting. This is her last summer before “the real world” and I intend to make it a crafty one.

My daughter will love all the jewelry and gardening related projects inside this issue of Kids Crafts 1-2-3. My younger son will be equally entertained by the dinosaur and robot ideas. The whole family will be thrilled with a delicious fruit kebab recipe for us to try. Yummy and healthy—my favorite kind!

From pre-schoolers to pre-teens and beyond, don’t let the name Kids Crafts 1-2-3 fool you. I’m way beyond my pre-teen years and the fox appliqué tote bag and measuring tape brooch inside this issue look like something I would love to make and wear. As always, I remind you to look at each project and consider how it could be tweaked for an older or younger crafter.

As my daughter and I count down to the first day of school (using the adorable school bus project inside of course), we will beat the heat this summer keeping crafty and creating fond memories. I hope you will join us and do the same.
