#madeitmondays

Winter is the season of DIY projects.  Especially this winter with its endless cold and snow.  And, if you’re anything like us, you have your DIY specialties.  You know, the perfect banana bread recipe, the killer art project, the endlessly entertaining science experiment or maybe a recent google search that unearthed a new favorite activity or site.  

If you have any good DIY projects to share, send them our way and we will feature them as part of our #madeitmondays series which goes up…yep, every Monday.

We’ll also send you a $10-off coupon to use in return.  And, send us your social info (as in Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc) and we’ll tag you so you can share your moment with your friends.

You can send your DIY pic and any accompanying info via email to: info@hihobatik.com   Be sure to include “madeitmondays” in the subject line.  

And for this #madeitmodays a bejeweled feather fan.  I challenge any kid armed with two of these to keep from dancing!

Valentine’s Cards

image

Nothing beats a homemade card for Valentine’s Day but if you plan to make one for every kid in the class and don’t want to pull an all-nighter with a hysterical 5 year old on Feb. 13th (um, yes, this has happened to me), then you need to start soon.  Figure you can do about 4-10 cards in one sitting depending on your kids attention span and age.  

Valentine’s cards are a great opportunity to use up art supplies and other materials that you have lying around.  All you really need is paper, glue and scissors.  Here are some ideas for other materials:

  • old magazines and catalogues for collage.

  • kid’s art work - I hate throwing away cute art work but my kids make SO much stuff that I have to get rid of much of it.  For V-Day, we cut it up into hearts and other shapes and use them for collage or to make paper flowers.

  • cotton balls and water colors - dampen cotton balls in water and paint with watercolors, then mold and use scissors to cut into heart shapes, let dry before gluing on to cards.

  • old makeup - this was the winner at my house…. though I have a rule that my girls are only allowed to wear lipstick on Halloween, I made an exception, gave them big red lips and let them kiss their cards.

And, check out our Valentine’s Day Pinterest board for lots of ideas including how to make pop up cards.  And, let us know if you have more ideas!
