Top 10 Kid Crafts Sites for Green Crafters
Need to find some kid crafts to keep your little ones entertained? These sites are packed with DIY ideas using eco-friendly materials.
When I got pregnant, I swore that I wouldn’t become one of those bloggers who talks about her kid all the time. But now that my son is 10 months old, I’m coming to terms with the fact that my little guy dominates my thoughts basically all of the time. Seriously, I’m the mom that looks at photos of my son on my phone after he goes to bed, because I miss his sweet face after just a few hours
Darrol Henry is a little bit too small to get crafty with me yet, but I’ve been sort of “collecting” kid crafts sites so that I’ll be armed with tons of kid crafts for us to do as he outgrows the urge to chew on everything in sight!
