for me, there is nothing as fun as making something with kiddies! the curious, creative, limitless possibilities of a child's mind is so inspiring! here's a fun new series for the rikrak studio, with lots of fun, easy, inexpensive handmaking projects for you to make with your children, your younger family members, your students or some fun kiddies you know & love (or easily adapted for adults to make as their own fun projects!) i've invited various fun folks to share a handmaking with kiddies idea with us: it might be a craft or art; a handmade excursion or handmade recipe. today is the next in the seires handmaking with kids: valentines (part 2) : handmade cards .... from me to you. enjoy!
here's a round up of fun & lovely love cards to make with the kids, or on your own, for the love season! these great DIY are either little hand friendly, or little bit bigger hand friendly, or perfect for nice big adult hands to make to give hands of all ages! enjoy and spread the love!
