Concoct a delicious dumpling dish with veggies made from tasty wool felt. Although the youngest kids will have to wait until the food is properly done and needles have been put away, this makes for a perfect first sewing project for the older ones.
The perfect family crafts project spells masks! They look really neat showcased in the bookcase or mounted on the wall but are also great fun for little actors to play with once they’re done being little artisans. In this month's B.A project, we gathered a stack of paper scraps from old packaging materials and had a go with the scissor, creating tribal-inspired 3D masks. In the step-by-step guide below we’re showing you how you can make a simple base that you can then decorate with your own imagination. And dear busy adults, this is not where you try to sneak out and rejoice with your i-something while the kids are crafting. Join in and see what making masks do for your creativity! It's actually really meditative AND fun no matter the age.
