Craft Roundup: Easy DIY Fun for Kids with Animal Themes, More

Did you have a good Fourth of July? After a busy, long weekend with family and friends, it's sometimes hard to get motivated to get back to work, get back to routines and savor the rest of summer. If your family is moving a bit slower this week but still looking for some fun activities to keep everyone entertained, try this week's Make It roundup of simple craft projects. Many of the craft supplies needed might already be in your house, making project time even easier.

 

Animal Jar Tops

Keep toys organized with a bit of fun, thanks to these creative and upcycled jars from Mr. Kate.

 

One-Minute Animal Print Puzzles

One minute couldn't be more accurate for this puzzle project from No Time for Flash Cards. Create a set of color puzzle pieces with your child's favorite colors and prints.

 

Star Wars Peg Dolls

May the crafting force be with you! These peg doll blanks from Pink and Green Mama can be found at most craft stores, so the personalization options, like a set of Star Wars characters, are endless.

 

Fabric Postcards

If you're a sewer and have a big basket of scrap pieces looking for a good home, try The Sewing Loft's clever idea of turning them into fabric postcards. A great way to not only use up your scraps, but use up cardboard heading for the recycling bin, too!
