fish card confetti craft
What is Green Kid Crafts? It is a subscription service where they will send a packet of crafts each month.  Inside the packet are all of the items needed to do the various crafts (except glue, scissors & markers).  You get a total of 3 inspirational and diverse crafts in each packet.  I just love the fact that all of the items in the kits are kid-friendly, earth-friendly, and safe… and many of the kits had a cultural application.
