I can go on and on about crafting. I have tried quite a few of them since I was a stay at home mom and had time on my hands when the kids started school.

Right now I'm building doll houses and I just bought myself a knitting machine. My first project on that is an afghan for one of my nieces.

Smile Crafts

I love doing crafts. Since I do scouts with my kids crafts is a major part of it. I like to learn new things. So, if anyone finds any kid-friendly sites that can help me find new crafts to do, Please let me know. Thank you and have a great day!

You might want to check out http://www.about.com. They have a lot of different kinds of crafts there. It's actually a search engine but it has a section for crafting.

Christmas Decorations Ideas

Pine Cone Christmas Tree

You'll need:
Dry Pine Cones
Green Glitter
Glue
Sequins


Paint the pine cone with glue.
Before the glue dries, sprinkle
with green glitter.
Top with a paper star. When it dries you can glue on sequins
or tinsel. Stand on the base for a Mini- Christmas Tree or hang by adding a tie.
Tip:
If you cannot find open pine cones. Place some in a 200 degree oven on a cookie sheet.
They will open as they dry.

Christmas Tree Ornament

Use last year's Holiday cards to make a new ornament.

You'll need:
Frozen Juice can lid
Construction paper
Old Christmas cards.
Ribbon
Glue

Cut a favorite picture from a card. Using the juice can lid,
trace and cut a circle from
the construction paper.
Glue the picture onto the paper and the paper onto
the lid.
Here's a job for Mom or dad?
Use a glue gun to attach a paper clip to the lid for a hanger.

Tips:
You can spray paint the lids in gold, green or red to add
a bit more. If you have particularly creative Kids, they
can glue objects onto their lids!

Pretzel Wreath
Perfect for a country Christmas!

You'll Need:
Little Pretzels
Curling Ribbon
Glue

String the curling ribbon through the pretzels.
Use an over-under /under- over pattern so that the pretzels will lay flat. Apply glue to secure each pretzel as you form a circle. Add another layer of pretzels onto the top. Glue on a Sprig of pine or
holly and this makes a beautiful gift.
Tip: Consider gluing the wreath onto a paper plate or a circle of cardboard for extra security.
