Artsy Potato Stamp Painting for Kids

Artsy Potato Stamp Painting for Kids

We’ve been going through a lot of paint around here. Playing outside is fun for my girls, but not quite as exciting as a craft table full of paint. I love helping my girls to practice their creative skills. The ability to be creative can affect so many areas of life down the road; cooking, decorating, accomplishing DIY projects — even work ethic can be impacted by creativity. If my girls simply become accomplished DIY-ers I will be happy. This crafty painting project is fun and colorful! All you need is a paper bag or painting paper, several potatoes and craft paint!

DIY Coupon Box

As a busy mom, I find it time consuming to cut out coupons, store them in an intentional spot, AND remember to use them at the store. I made this little DIY coupon box for storing my coupons out of the way but still in sight so I’ll use them, not lose them. You could also store mementos, photos, and other small items to keep safe.
