As my boys’ get older encouraging them to be creative is becoming harder and hard but they both loved making these DIY etched wooden heart keyrings perhaps it had something to do with the fact that they were using a burning tool! I am warning you this is so addictive we now want to etch everything that is wooden! So hold on to your hats folks as this is a great craft for older kids and adults alike.
These DIY name key fobs are paid collaboration with Sugru.

I love finding ways to engage my boys with art and as they are getting older I am finding it harder and harder to make it about the process and not the outcome. However, this melted crayon art is all about the process and I had so much fun watching Maxi (10) create these amazing melted crayon art canvases.
We first used microwave drying clay with our Christmas fingerprint decorations and we totally fell for it, so decided to give it a try for the microwave clay heart shaped ring dish. The microwave clay is much lighter weight that standard air drying clay, in fact is has almost no weight to it, but it is easier to work with for smaller children and it isnt as fibrous as standard air drying clay. A big bonus is it dried a beautiful bright white too.
