Painted sticks. What a great summertime project for kids. I can picture several of these on a wall, either grouped into an abstract design or formed into a frame around a picture. Could also use the sticks to spell out the child's name. Ideas are limitless.

So simple, so beautiful, great way for kids to display their creativity. Great talking stick craft idea for kids to take home.

Cheerio Bird Feeder. So simple and cute :). These are made with pipe cleaners, so you can bend them into any shape you like!

- These were fun and easy. We used the cheapest cheerio knock-offs we could find so it was super cheap. We hung ours in the tree in our backyard and the kids loved seeing the birds and squirrels that came by.

Nature and shadow- what if we take out the paints and paint in the lines….?
