Craft Roundup: Simple Little Projects for Families

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?

DIY Hair Elastics

Your gals will never be without an important ponytail holder thanks to this simple project from Minted. Have your crafters make a big batch for spring to keep for themselves – or to give to friends as gifts.

Flower Number Cards

These sweet cards, created by Malia of From Playdough to Plato, help children practice numbers and fine motor skills – but, once assembled, look cute enough to send as cards all on their own.

Bias Tie Baby Bib

Organic cotton designers Birch Fabrics proudly showcase a bib tutorial from blogger Littlest Pretty Things this week that reinforces how to add a sewing staple to a mealtime staple.

Balloon Egg Pinata

The Gunny Sack created these balloon-filled pinatas for Easter, but they'd be great for any event or for an after-school surprise "just because."
