Cupcakes For Kids

 

Cupcakes-For-Kids-Artzy Creations

I love toys that encourage imaginative playtime for kids.  Especially during the summer when the kids have more time to play.   I happened upon these cute paper mache cupcake boxes and knew that these would make darling toys for my youngest daughter.  These Cupcakes For Kids are just the cutest.   All you need is couple of basic craft materials and in no time you will have some adorable play cupcakes.  Let’s get started.

Cupcakes-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 2a

 

Supplies Needed:

  • Paper Mache Cupcake Boxes
  • Fabric
  • Mod Podge in Matte Finish
  • Paint Brush
  • Pom Poms
  • Hot Glue
  • Various Acrylic Paints

Cupcakes-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 3

Step 1: Apply Mod Podge to the paper mache cupcake box.  Apply the fabric and cover with a coat of Mod Podge.  Let dry.

Step 2:  Paint the top of the cupcakes with different acrylic paint colors.

Step 3:  Hot glue or Tacky glue the pom pom onto the top of the cupcake.

These are so simple and fun. Your kids just have to help make them!  They  will for sure have fun painting the tops. You could also make boy versions of the cupcakes using super hero or train fabric, etc.  If you don’t have any fabric scraps at home, you could also use tissue paper, construction paper…  the possibilities are endless.

My daughter has filled these with all of her favorite little toys.  She loves Legos, Shopkins, jewelry, bouncy balls.  You name it, and you could fit a lot of cute treasures in these.  Pssst… they would also make super cute party favors too 🙂

 I hope you your kids have lots of imaginary fun with these.

Enjoy!

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign withPollinate Media Group® andWet-Nap®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #ConquerTheMesshttp://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

 I’ve been an art teacher for the past eighteen years now, so I am always creating or making some sort of project in our household.  I love that my kids see me creating different types of art and want to create art as well.  They will often go and grab their art supplies when they see that I have mine out.  Most of the time though, they don’t even wait for me.  They just grab their materials and start creating.  However, we all know that with creating and making wonderful art projects, it often times ends up making a big mess.   Well, over the years, I have gotten the clean up part down pat and what I’ve figured out, is that what you need is something that’s quick and easy that makes clean up a breeze. That’s why I love the convenience of Wet Naps. I pick up a ton of these at Walmart, and when we have an art project, I set the package of Wet Naps out for my kids to use.  They can just grab them and clean up as needed.  This method  is also especially helpful if you have a kid that is a little more concerned when sticky things like glue get on their fingers.

Well, today, I’m sharing with you, one of those projects that has a tendency to be a little messy, but kids absolutely love it.  No need to worry and fuss about the mess when all you need is just a few Wet Naps for clean up and you’re done!   Let’s get started.

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations

Supplies Needed:

  • (1) Clear 2-liter Plastic Bottle
  • Tissue Paper in a Variety of Colors
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Newspaper
  • Small Dowel Rod Cut To About 4 -3/4″  (or a Stick works well)
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue
  • Bungee Cord or Some Type of Twine

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 1

Step 1:  Remove the label from the 2-liter plastic bottle.  Cut the top part of the bottle off using scissors.

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 2

Step 2:  Cut the front part off of the 2-liter bottle and round the top edges.

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 3

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 4

Step 3:  Cut several small pieces of tissue paper to roughly  1″ x 1″.  Apply Mod Podge to the inside of the bottle and put strips of tissue paper onto the wet Mod Podge areas.  Go over the tissue paper with a layer of Mod Podge.  Let it dry.  If you are going to use this in an area that is more exposed to the elements, you may want to use a clear coat of spray paint, but because we plan to put ours under a VERY large Cedar tree, I decided not to seal it.

Step 4:  Cut a hole in the bottom, not far from lip using the scissors and insert the dowel rod. This is a little perch for your birds.  Use hot glue to secure the dowel rod in place. I used a little dab of hot glue on the inside.

Step 5:  Cut two holes at the top of the bottle / bird feeder.  Lace the bungee cord or twine through.  Put some bird seed into the feeder and hang in a branch or a small nail.

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 5

For the entire project, I laid down a few pieces of newspaper.  When clean up time came around, all I did was give my daughter a couple of Wet Naps to clean the Mod Podge off of her fingers and for everything else, I just folded up the newspaper and recycled it. Clean up was honestly that simple.

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 6

 Wet Naps are nice because they’re really soft, and you can use them on your little ones hands and face.  Lily likes these because they’re really soft on the skin.

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 7

Recycled-Bird-Feeder-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 8

Here’s how Lily’s bird feeder turned out!  It’s so awesome and colorful.  She really loves it.  Using Wet Naps makes projects like these hassle free.  Visit Walmart for all your Wet-Nap® needs: 110-Count Hands, Face, & Body Cleansing Wipes, 24-Count Packettes Antibacterial Hand Wipes and 40-Count Canister Antibacterial Hand Wipes…  This is just what you need to make craft time hassle free and fun for everyone.

Bottle Cap Bugs

Bottle-Cap-Bugs-Artzy Creations 3a

  Summer is a perfect time to try simple and fun projects with the kiddos.  Especially when the kids are looking for a good boredom buster. Having taught art for 18 years now, I have also looked for projects that you can upcycle/recycle. These Bottle Cap Bugs are great for kids for all ages because they can be as simple and intricate as you want. Kids can create all different types of bugs. Bees, Lady Bugs, Beetles, and all sorts of imaginary bugs are possible. Plus, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg for your supplies.

Supplies Needed:

  • Bottle Caps
  • Transparency Paper
  • Sharpie Markers
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue or Elemer’s Glue (You can use Elemer’s Glue to glue the wings and eyes of the
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Googly Eyes

Step 1: Using the transparency paper, cut any shape of wing.

Step 2: Color the wings in using the Sharpie markers using any pattern or design.

Bottle-Cap-Bugs-Artzy Creations 1

Step 3: Hot glue or use Elmer’s Glue to glue the wings onto the bottle cap.

Step 4: Glue the googly eyes on to the front of the bottle cap.

A couple of tips to share while making these cute bottle cap bugs.  Sharpie Markers as you can see can get a little streaky.  If you have younger kids make these, they might have to slow down a bit when coloring to make sure the marker is not too streaky.  Also, remind kids to not drag their hands over areas that have just been colored.  The marker will smear.

Bottle-Cap-Bugs-Artzy Creations 4

Look at all of this cuteness!  I can’t pick a favorite because I love them all.  My daughter’s just love making these and I’m sure your kids will too.

Hope you all continue to have a wonderful summer and enjoy all of the fun Bottle Cap Bug Making.

Homemade Playdough For Kids

Homemade-Playdough-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 2a

I know the summer months can bring those days where the kids are looking for something to do.  This Homemade Playdough Recipe is sure to keep the little ones very busy.

I also love this recipe because the playdough stays nice and soft due to cooking it slightly on the stove top.  I have found that some of the homemade recipes for playdough that aren’t cooked will not stay very soft and have funny textures to them too.  That’s certainly not the case with this recipe.  That’s why I absolutely LOVE it!  I’m also going to share with you my little secret for getting these great colors too.

PLAYDOUGH RECIPE:

  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Salt
  • 1 TBS. Cream of Tartar
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/2 TBS.  Vegetable Oil
  • Wilton Icing Color Dyes

Step 1:  Combing the flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a cooking pan.  Whisk all of these ingredients together.  This will also help remove any lumps that might be in the flour.

Step 2:  Measure out the 1/2 cup of water.  Add the Wilton Icing Color Dye to the water.  Using a fork, make sure the dye is diluted in the water.

Homemade-Playdough-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 3

Step 3:  Add the water and dye to the dry mix in the cooking pan.  Next, add the 1/2 TBS. of vegetable oil.  Mix.

Step 4:  While stirring frequently, cook the mixture for about 30 seconds to 1 mintue on medium to high heat.  You will find that your mixture will get thick and “playdough” like.  Make sure to continually stir during this process.  If you find that your playdough is too thin, cook for a little bit longer.  I like to not cook the playdough very long at all because I want it to be nice and soft.

Homemade-Playdough-For-Kids-Artzy Creations 4

The secret to the bright colors is the Wilton Icing Color Dyes.  I’ve used the regular food coloring before and you just don’t get the same results.  My kids flip over these bright colors too and prefer them over the regular food colored dyed playdough.  So, I definitely recommend trying the Wilton Icing Color Dyes.

Easy to roll and little hands will just love the softness of this playdough.

Have fun making this Homemade Playdough.  If you never tried it, it’s really simple.  My five year old helped me make all of this playdough.  It was a fun time for both of us.  So, if you’re looking for a great boredom buster this summer or it’s just too hot to be outside, give this homemade playdough a shot.

DIY Popsicle Cards

PicMonkey Collage

  I love this time of year. It’s all about summer BBQ parties and lots of outdoor fun.   I think everyone can relate to having fond summer memories that include cool & refreshing popsicles.  Summer  just wouldn’t be complete without them.  So, for today’s craft, I have a super cute and simple DIY Washi Tape Popsicle Card.  I’ve included a Free Template to make creating them super easy.  You can personalize these for any summer occasion like pool parties, summer birthdays, thank you cards, or just because they’re fun!

If you haven’t tried Washi tape before, it’s a Japanese paper tape that you can find in almost any craft store.  I must warn you though… because of all of the cute colors and patterns that you can find, and the endless things that you can make with Washi tape, it can be very addicting.

DIY-Washi-Tape-Popsicle-Cards-Artzy Creations 1

Supplies Needed:

  • Plain Cards or Cardstock
  • Various colors of Washi Tape (I used the really thin Washi Tape for this project.)
  • Wax Paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Transfer Paper (Paper that you would normally use for Cricut or Silhouette Projects)
  • Popsicle Template (Download Here)
  • Anything that works as a squeegee

Step 1:  Cut out the popsicle template.

DIY-Washi-Tape-Popsicle-Cards-Artzy Creations 2

Step 2:  Tear off a piece of wax paper.  Place the popsicle template underneath the wax paper.  Use a little piece of washi tape to help hold it in place.  Cut or tear the washi tape pieces long enough to cover the Popsicle template that is under your wax paper.  Lay the pieces of Washi tape down on top of the pattern & slightly overlap each piece of Washi tape as you go.  Repeat this process until you have covered the entire pattern.

Step 3: Take  your squeegee and carefully run it over the Washi tape.  This will help adhere the Washi tape to the wax paper so it doesn’t come off in pieces.  Remove the popsicle pattern from underneath the wax paper.

DIY-Washi-Tape-Popsicle-Cards-Artzy Creations 3

Step 4:  Place the pattern on top of the Washi tape and trace around the pattern with a pencil, or just cut it out using the template as your guide.  Once you’ve finished cutting out your Popsicle, you’ll have the washitape on front and the wax paper on the back.

Step 5:  Cut a piece of transfer paper large enough to cover the entire cutout.  Remove the transfer paper backing.  Lay the transfer paper on top of the cutout and rub your hand or squeegee over it.  Place your cutout pattern on your paper to get an idea of where the center should be.  Peel the wax paper off of the back and stick your popsicle in place.

 That’s it!  So fun and simple.  The best part is you can personalize them any way you’d like.  I love how cute they turned out.  These definitely scream summer.

Mini Felt Mother’s Day Wreaths

Mini-Mother's-Day-Wreath-Artzy Creations

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I absolutely love it when my daughters make me something for Mother’s Day.  I have always loved hand made gifts because they come from the heart.  Well, this year, my daughters wanted to create something a little bit different than the traditional card.  So, we came up with the idea together to create these Mini Felt Mother’s Day Wreaths and they turned out adorable.

Supplies Needed:

  • 16″ Gauge Aluminum Wire
  • Wire Cutters
  • 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Various Colors of Felt
  • Tacky Glue

Step 1:  Cut the aluminum wire so it measures roughly 13″ to 14″.  Bend and wrap it together so it forms a mini circular wreath.  You can customize this to any size you would like.

Step 2:  Hot glue the green grosgrain ribbon in place at the top of the wreath and wrap it tightly around the wire.  Once you’ve finished wrapping the ribbon around the entire wreath, hot glue it again in place.

Mini-Mother's-Day-Wreath-Artzy Creations 1

Step 3:  Cut out mini felt leaves and wrap them onto the wire as shown above.

Step 4:  If your child has a hard time cutting flower shapes out of felt, have them draw the shapes onto the felt or use pattern.  Cut out all various shapes and sizes of flowers out of felt.  When getting ready to glue, look at the pieces and if you have any marker or pencil marks from drawing out the felt flowers, just flip them over before gluing in place.  Use tacky glue to glue the pieces together.

Here’s and example of one of the flowers that was tacky glued along the bottom and then rolled up.  The others were just layered.

 Step 5:  Cut out the the letters for Mom and the two hearts for the O.
