kid’s color sort diy

Did you think I was done with felt balls and color DIYs?!
My last one was geared towards older kids, and this one is perfect for the real little ones. I was able to complete this one with things that I had on hand, and if you don’t have a million pieces of felt in your stash...you’re much more Marie Kondo than I am.
But seriously, this one is easy and if anything, another excuse to buy or put to use those Hello Maypole felt balls!
These 6 count muffin tins were from the Dollar Store, felt was originally from Hobby Lobby & felt balls from my Hello Maypole hoarding bin,  I just pulled out which colors I wanted to use and matched them to my felt.  

You could stick to the basic ROYGBIV rainbow, but I added in a few “in between” colors, as well as black and white.  You can really do whatever you want or have on hand to work with.

Start by creating a pattern, trace the bottom of the tin and cut it out on paper.  Then using that pattern, cut out all your felt.
Here you have the option to glue your felt into the bottom of the tin, or if you’re using your actual baking tins, just pop them in the bottom and let your little one go for it!
Not gluing them in the bottom would also give you the option to change out the colors of your felt or mix them around out of color order to keep their brains firing!

Again, another easy way to incorporate learning and your craft stash.  Fun for EVERYONE!

The Garlands of Summer

In case you ever wondered what Summer would look like in garland form...this is it.  Watermelons, pineapples and rainbow bunting- that's what summer dreams are made of. 
Make 'em, stack 'em and enjoy your summer goodness.
The watermelons are made from 2 different sized circles, cut in half with seeds drawn right on.
The pineapples are cut using shape printed off from google and sized down to wallet-size.


The only thing that's missing is the smell of a bonfire at the beach....
