One of my favorite things to use during crafts to make homemade gifts is a crafting modge podge. One of the easiest gifts we have made are some homemade coasters. They are super easy and fun to make. This time around we have used Angel Craft Podge Semi Gloss.
Angel Craft Podge is a new product to me. This is a semi glass. It glues, seals, and protects. The nice thing about this bottle is it has its own built in brush on the cap. We tried to use it for our project, however we needed to grab a bigger brush to cover more area.
Sunday I had decided I wanted to try making a bubble solution for my daughter and her friend. It was a gorgeous weekend and I wanted to have some fun before the rain/storms came this week. My daughter and I had ran to the store to pick up the ingredients. We mixed them together, but the solution had to sit for two hours. I think that was the longest two hours of the day for these girls, who were patiently waiting.
We have been working on our ocean and theme and one of the things we have recently made was a paper mache whale. Both my kids are working on an ocean theme, however my daughter was working on the Blue Whale. I had my son make one as we are working on sensory issues. He does not like gooey things and he doesn’t like his hands sticky.
While I was cleaning out the craft closet I noticed that I had bought felt but never used. See I have thoughts that come in my head and I buy the craft materials for it and then I end up forgetting. I had black and orange felt and thought that would be perfect to make a felt pumpkin kit for my daughter for Halloween.
To make your own pumpkin face kit you will need:
- 1 piece of orange felt
- 1 piece of black felt
The leaves are starting to slowly fall off the trees here. They are slowly starting to change their colors. In a couple weeks we should be at our peak fall colors. I was hoping to find some read leaves but no such luck so we used what we had. If you have leaves that are starting to fall this would be the perfect craft for fall. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to as I let my daughter go to town on the gluing. I think red would have added a little more color too! So may another craft like this will be in the works for us.
