If you prepare a birthday party for your kid, you always should pay attention to all the details of this day. What about party hats? We have one brilliant idea! For making these hats you’ll need cone water cups, colorful cupcake liners, pom poms, glitter, elastic tinsel cord, 1/16 circle hole punch, scissors, glue and hot glue gun. First glue a cupcake liner to the inside of the cone cup and a pom pom to the top. Then punch a hole on both sides of the cup where the tinsel cord will be threaded. Next thread the elastic through one hole and tie a knot to secure. Now you should measure your little one’s head to get the sizing right, then thread the elastic through the other hole and tie a knot. Read what to do next here.
Furniture of the new generation, as we may name it, strikes with innovative ideas and possibilities.

Your kids can turn those boxes into racecars, castles, airplanes and whatever else they want. It’s easy, because the furniture is lightweight, it requires no adhesives for assembly and snaps together perfectly. It’s available now for preorder, so be sure to check out!
It’s a very bright and funny craft, so your kids will like it and want to decorate their rooms! You will need scissors, double-sided tape, oval balloons, 2 feathers per chick, orange crepe paper, black permanent marker and ribbon or string. Inflate balloon to approximately 75%. Make sure the balloon is not too full with air or else it will pop when twisting it into sections. Flip the balloon upside down so that the knotted lip is facing upwards. Then rotate the top third of the balloon several times to create the chick’s head. Tear small pieces of double-sided tape and place them on either side of your chick. Stick one feather to each side to make your chick’s wings. The rest of the tutorial is here.

Does your son love soccer? Of course, all kids love to play soccer at free time! But if they haven’t opportunity to play at backyard, they can play at home! You will need a willing hand, paint (best to use face/body paint), plastic plate to mix paints (optional), a small ball or a piece of paper and two small boxes or containers (goal posts). Paint the outline of a soccer player on your child’s hand (head, shirt, hands, feet). Use your child’s index finger and middle finger as the soccer player’s feet. Add face and hair for details. Paint the shirt using your child’s favorite color. If you don’t have a small ball, crumple a piece of paper into the shape of a ball. Locate two small containers to use as goal posts and start to play! Goal!
If your kids wanna be bunnies on Easter, we have an idea – make these bunny ears for them! For this project you will need just pipe cleaners and wire cutters. Take two pipe cleaners, and twist together the ends several times to make one long pipe cleaner. Use the long pipe cleaner to wrap around their head to measure the circumference. At the point where you measured your child’s head, wrap the pipe cleaner around several times to close off the circle, then snip away any remaining pipe cleaner with your wire cutters. Wrap another pipe cleaner around one end of the circle several times to secure it. The rest of the tutorial is here.
