Make brooches with a personal touch using a guide from Activity Village. When you're done, fill the box with ticket stubs and souvenirs from the trip.
Cut out four 4-inch squares from felt and use waterproof glue to stick them to the bottom of the tile. Lay out the old newspapers to make cleanup easier.
Dip the sponge brush into paint and paint the entire palm of your child's hand. Have her press handprints onto the tote in a radiating circle to resemble the petals of a flower. Use the brush to paint a center for the flower, a stem, and a leaf. Personalize further by writing, stamping, or stenciling "Mom" on each bag.
Let the totes dry for about four hours, then stuff with goodies. Photos, card stock, glue, ribbon, hole puncher, scissors, contact paper optional. Find a photo booth that takes a strip of photos look in a local department store, like Kmart, or in the mall , and get your kids and husband inside the booth for a photo.
Cut a rectangular piece of card stock that's a little larger than the photo and glue the photo strip onto it. Decorate the back of the bookmark with a message or print out the word "mother" in different languages. To embellish, add stickers or punch a hole at the top and tie a ribbon through it. To seal the bookmark, get it laminated at a local photocopy store or buy some contact paper to laminate it yourself.
Poster paper, black markers, digital camera, four-window photo frame, scissors. Cut four equal-size rectangles out of poster paper -- make sure they're large enough to show up on camera. Using a black marker, draw each letter of the word "LOVE" on a different piece of paper. Hand your kid s each letter and snap away with your digital camera. Check to see if your camera has a black and white setting, or print your photos in black and white on your computer or at a local drugstore.
Once they're developed, pick your favorite photos to spell out L-O-V-E, and place them inside the frame. Empty matchbox, decorative scrapbook paper or wrapping paper, ribbon, acrylic paint, glue, scissors. Remove the inner part of the matchbox that slides out, and paint it on every side. Cut, cover, and glue decorative paper on the outer part of the matchbox most matchboxes use about 2" x 4" strips. Once both the inside and outside boxes are dry, glue a photo of your child on the inside of the inner box.
Glue a ribbon to the back of the outer box to tie around the neck. Embellish with flowers or stickers. Wool roving, elastic cord, warm water, soap, sewing needle, scissors. Choose various colors of wool roving. Combine two colors at a time by rolling the roving between the palms to make a long, snake-like tube. Dissolve some soap in warm water. Dip the wool into warm, soapy water to get it completely wet, and then squeeze out the excess water. Roll the tube again between the palms to bind together.
Knot the cord when the bracelet is complete, and then cut off the excess cord. If you're an experienced crafter who's familiar with jewelry making, add a lobster clasp at each end of the cord. Cupcake liners in three sizes small, medium, and large , pipe cleaners, toothpick, sponge brush or sponge, red craft paint.
Stack the liners -- 3 small on the inside, 3 medium in the middle, and 3 large on the outside. Hold the liners together at the middle and, with a toothpick, poke two holes near the center about an inch apart. Thread a pipe cleaner through the holes, and tighten the wire underneath to scrunch the liners slightly.
Fold and crease the whole flower into a half-moon shape. Take some time to separate the layers so the flowers "bloom. Newspaper, red craft paint, floral tape, green floral wires or pipe cleaners, scissors.
Cut two circles, about 8 inches in diameter, out of newspapers. Layer one circle on top of the other and fold them together in half. Take one corner of the paper, fold it into the center point of the semicircle, and pinch the bottom.
While holding the flower at the bottom, separate the top of the flower. Roll the bottom of each flower between the thumb and forefinger to tighten the base. Tape the bottom of each flower so it doesn't unravel.
To make a bouquet, tape each rose to a wire or pipe cleaner. Paint the roses with red craft paint -- remember, the less perfect, the better. Paint the outside of the paper rolls any solid color, and paint the bamboo skewers green.
Once the paper rolls are dry, cut vertical strips on one or both sides of the roll if you do both sides, leave about 1" uncut in the middle. Fold the strips or "petals" back to show the inside of the roll that isn't painted yet. Paint the rest of the strips and decorate them.
Stick the bamboo skewers through the center of the uncut part of the roll to make the stems. Make just one "love stem" or a bunch for a bouquet. Colored pipe cleaners 6 of each color , ribbon, glue dots, rice, small flower pot. Start by decorating your flower pot. Measure a pink ribbon to fit around the pot, cut it to size, and, using glue dots, stick it around the pot. Tie the ribbon into a bow, and fill the pot with rice.
If you want to color the rice green so it looks like grass, see below for instructions. To make the flowers, lay out six pipe cleaners of the same color together, flat on the table. Determine the center of the six pipe cleaners and wrap a long, green pipe cleaner the "stem" around the middle; the green pipe cleaner should halve the pipe cleaners.
Twist the stem to hold the pipe cleaners together. Bend the pipe cleaners toward the center and curl them to make a flower; the ends of each colored pipe cleaner should touch the top of the green stem in the middle.
Your bundle should now have six "petals. Make a few more flowers and "plant" them in your pot.
