Nifty ideas for DIY fun

When my kids were small, I worried that they fine motor skills were not properly developed, so I foraged the internet for advice and ferreted out amazing number of great ideas for play and craft. Our living room drawers could no longer close with all the TP rolls, googly eyes, pom-poms, chimney sweepers, tissue paper, beads, glitter glue, and the shelves could hardly bear all the wonderful items we knocked together.

I took my inspiration mainly from such sites as Fun Crafts KidsKids Activities Blog, The Inspired TreehouseHappy HooligansRed Ted ArtThe Artful Parent and Meri Cherry.

In this section I will be posting different ideas we tried out at home, enjoyed making and felt proud to see finished. I hope you have fun with them as much as we did.
