Creative Techniques for Craft Creations

Every Wednesday afternoon It’s playtime with our weekly Kids Meme. Thanks to all of you who provide inspiration for the rest of us to enjoy.  I love browsing all the different ideas of kids activities linked up each week. Recently however, I have been on the look-out for a specific “sort” of craft.  Between the Quirky Mommas we have 30 kids ranging from 11 to toddlers. We *need* crafts that a wide range of ages can enjoy together. This week’s “collage” of activities are three creative techniques that you can do with kids of any age, that are simple to produce but with terrific results.

The members of the Art Club created foil embossed tiles using tacky glue and tin foil. I love the finished product!
Over at Handmade Creativity, they found a great use for all of those old calendars. She cut the pictures up into strips and wove them to create new wall art.
Cathy over at Nurture Store collected all of her children’s “treasures” from a beach trip and used them to decorate cement garden tiles.
