Kid Crafts to Beat the Boredom: Week 3

Catch all the GoodnCrazy Summer Ideas in One Click!

HELP! My Kids Are Driving Me Crazy!

I'm excited to introduce Katie from Good Life {Eats}!
She is quite the foodie extraordinaire, and once upon a time was the winner of a little BuildABear! I routinely drool over her recipes and her photos!

But today... She is sharing a special treat... A fabulous Kid Friendly Craft!

Please meet Logan. Logan is home from school for the summer. Logan is bored. Logan is Katie's little boy...

Since my 4 year old, Logan, doesn’t nap anymore, many afternoons find us in the kitchen working on some food related project. I love this special time together. Fun memories are made. Skills are learned. Conversations are shared. The kitchen is a great place to bond with your child and an inexpensive way to ease that afternoon boredom (which too often results in cranky kiddos!). He is particularly a fan of helping me bake. This time it is something a little different than our usual because it isn’t an edible project, but it most definitely involves food and the kitchen.
Click on over to Katie's amazing website to see more of this project and all the What's and How-To's! My kids can't wait to try out this project.

A little tip: You'll need to stock up on a bunch of rubbing alcohol! But wow, look at those amazing colors?!
