Hello, HomeSpun Threads Readers! I am so thrilled to be with you today sharing a bit of summer fun. I am Tammy and I blog at She Wears Flowers. I am a mom to sweet twin 10-year-old girls and a sassy three-year-old girl, too. It's all about girls in our home, with the occasional concession for the one boy--my great husband. I like to share my projects on my blog and they aren't even all girl projects!
This little project is so fun for creative little ones who have a love for decorating. With a little help and some simple supplies...
I love to craft, cook and create, and find ways to be frugal and make things myself. Today, I am going to show you how to make your own bubbles, wands and blowers at home, for a fraction of the price you pay at the store! And it's fun, I promise. My kids had a blast helping me make the bubbles and wands, and had even more of a blast playing with them! Okay, let's get started!
A friend of mine and I started a ministry to help foster families and we were recently asked to represent at an event with a booth and a game for kids as the come around. We have our prizes for trying and hand major prize for winning but winning...well...we made it a little difficult. This game was attractive and fun and the kids loved it.
It was simple to make and I'll walk you through it.
Sometimes kids come up with the cutest ideas. How can we roast mini marshmallows? With the help of an adult, candle, toothpicks, and...
When I was trying to come up with some cute and very cheap party favors for the little pirates coming to the birthday party, I searched high and low and finally found some little items but I needed something to put them in. I remembered my little one coming home from church with a felt pouch they made to put stones in. So, I called on a friend who came through and brought me the left overs from the lesson and boy was I excited. These are super easy to make and take very little time and are PERFECT for giving away their favors in.
Thanks Aimee for letting me share this quick and easy tutorial for window paint.
I am excited to be here! My name is Kristy Neeley and I have 4 kids aged 1, 2,4 and 6. We have a good time and they keep me busy! I also write a fun crafty, healthy, DIY blog at www.apronsandapples.blogspot.com .

We had a lot of fun with this!

This is one of my favorite Halloween crafts and I love that my kids helped me make these special treated too. Halloween is a fun time for many and for us we love the treats much more than the tricks. Here is a fun tutorial on making miniature candy apples and a really cool download from one of my favorite paper craft shops.
When my boys were little we used to love to go outside and make so many bubbles. They loved this little activity for years and years.
Several years ago, I made these fun little blocks for Christmas gifts. This little project is fun for kids to make as well.
