Craft Roundup: Simple Little Projects for Families
Want a bit of DIY fun without a huge time investment? From hair elastics and number cards to pinatas and baby bibs, these easy crafts are fun for kids.
One of the many fun things about crafting is the time you spend making the gift by yourself after a busy day – or with a group of friends. Whether it's creating a last-minute birthday present or presenting a new skill to your child, this week's Make It roundup features fun, simple projects. For example, the hair elastics, which take just a few minutes to make, are perfect for stocking up the beauty cupboard or for making DIY party favors for a makeover-themed party. Which featured project is your favorite this week?
