Welcome to the Kids Crafts Blog!

The Kids Crafts Blog I’m a married mom of 3 and a pre-school teacher who uses arts and crafts activities to engage children creatively and have some wholesome fun. I love to share arts and crafts ideas with parents, homeschoolers and educators as a springboard for creative learning and development. Experimenting with specialty paper, foam, wood and other craft materials, I like to help kids create an end result that they are excited to not only display but play and interact with as well.
