18. Glove Monsters
How fun are these!? And, it just so happens that I have a ton of gloves my daughter has outgrown (most of them missing their partner). I was just about to throw them in the Goodwill bag, but now they have an adorable new purpose! The instructions call for a sewing machine, but I don’t see why you couldn’t hand stitch them– they don’t need to be perfect, after all, they’re monsters! Go get the instructions and lots of other cute photos here.
19. Secret Message Painting
Watercolors and a white crayon are all you will need to make secret messages and cool art projects! Amaze the little ones by telling them they are painting on magic paper (after drawing a design or writing a message with your crayon, of course). So simple but fun! Read more here.
20. Bead Suncatchers
I was a little apprehensive about this at first because of the thought of melting plastic in the house (and the possibility of ruining my muffin pans), but after reading the instructions, I was relieved to see that the beads just fall out after being melted, and you can also bake them outside in a toaster oven or on the grill if you’re worried about the fumes.
These really turned out looking amazing! In fact, you can also make larger ones in a round cake pan. After they dry, you can drill a small hole in the top so that they can easily be hung from a window or anywhere outside where they’ll get plenty of sunlight. Go check out the full instructions!
