Is it hot where you are? It’s been averaging in the high 90’s here, so we’ve been trying to find some things to do inside when it just becomes too hot to be outside. We have absolutely been LOVING these We Made It by Jennifer Garner kits. Making things with my kids is always a great experience. Sometimes it seems like more effort than I really want to put out…but every time I do, it’s so worth it.
If you are on Instagram you will want to check out the #wemadeitsweepstakes. Jo-Ann is asking parents to share photos, projects and advice about crafting with their family. The prizes are awesome, so be sure to check it out!
Jo-Ann sent us a couple kits to play with and my kids couldn’t wait! We got the fruit bird feeder and the treasure box. Each kit comes with everything you need to make a project that you don’t mind keeping around. (I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants to dispose of some of their children’s messy craft projects without hurting feelings).
I set my 11 year old daughter and 7 year old boy up with the bird feeder. They planned out what they wanted to do, and started right in. My 4 year old and 9 year old boys took on the treasure box. They wanted a little more help, and I was happy to oblige. The conversations were fun, and memories were made.
In the end, I think they turned out sooo super cute! My kids were really proud of themselves too. I mean look at those smiles. They had to show them off to dad as soon as he walked in the door too. 🙂
The bird feeder is cute enough that I hung a hook on my pergola to hang it up.
The treasure box has been filled with fun, painted on rocks and has been a fun little display box that actually looks cute in their room. I’m such a clutter-free freak, that is really saying something for me.
These would make great birthday gifts, fun projects for grandparents to do with their kids, and of course parents and their kids. Older kids can totally do these by themselves…but I totally recommend doing them with your kids, the time together is priceless. 🙂
