  1. How about some patchwork hairbands with interchangeable snap on feather or bead fascinators? Some wee wallet keychains that snap on belt loops (I see those keyrings in there).. aaand some tapestry collages of tropical summer scenery.

  2. I think clay is one of the best kid crafts, especially if you have a kiln to fire and glaze them. My mom still has some great dinosaurs, a horse, and a castle we made as kids that is actually surprisingly sculptural. Also, what kid doesn't like mucking around with mud and water.

  7. When I was in grade 3-4, we had the school librarian as a teacher. He shared the job with a very nice lady, but I've always remembered his habit of wandering over in the library, and placing his arm on your head to lean on. He had a great sense of humor, and was the only teacher in our school to still wear a proper suit. In grade 11, we had a western civ teacher who was easily sent off on tangents, and we loved his tales of reminiscence; the haunted spaghetti at his family reunion and the girl he wasn't allowed to date due to religious differences.

  8. my kids are both still very young but, i think the best craft projects we do are the handmade cards for daddy and the grandparents. even if it was just when they were "firstborn" as my daughter says and only a handprint butterfly.

  9. What a great giveaway! Thank you for creating such a fun craft pack! My little girl and I would start with necklaces and then make purses and doll clothes! Good times!

    ReplyDelete
  10. One of my favorite craft projects was very simple. Each child painted one black handprint on a small canvas. (The canvas was painted solid ivory.) Then we trimmed the edge of the canvas in black grosgrain ribbon. So easy, but I will keep them forever!

  11. I have so many favorite teachers! One of my very favorites was Mrs. S. I was lucky to have her in 3rd and 5th grade. She was patient, fun, and caring. She met my children a couple of years ago-that was really special!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lots of necklaces and bracelets for dress up time! And since fall is birthday season in my family, we'll make a lot of cards with the glitter and fabric. Can I keep the lace for myself?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love making things out of my girls' crayong scribbles. We can't save everything but making little keepsakes is a way to preserve just a little bit of it.

  20. My fave school teacher is one called miss Marie (don't know her full name)! She used to teach in fifth grade and all the kids used to love her! She was sweet and kind and strict all at the same time! Too bad she retired the year i came in fifth grade;she taught my class only for a week or so! We all cried when she left!

  23. My first year in high school, I had a great English teacher who taught me not just English lessons, but life lessons that I still remember to this day. He made English not just a class, but something from which everyone could glean life lessons. He also had lots of interesting and humorous stories, and had a lot of life experience that made his class very memorable.

  30. One of my favourite school teachers is my daughter's grade one Friday teacher this year. She let my daughter read stories to the class that she had written herself and she told me cute stories about my daughter at the end of the day. You could tell she really cared about her students. mybabyappleseed(at)yahoo(dot)ca

  36. Definitely the home made doll printable. I made this

  38. Since Baby G hasn't started school yes, so I guess it's going to be my teacher then. I always remember Mrs. Netty, my 6th grade teacher, I love the fact that she's both math and tae kwon do teacher, and she goes to school jogging everyday, and her crop pixie cut hair, and she once won me over a big argue with a mean bully (I stood up for a friend against the bully, we got into a fight, yes, "boy" fight, and she noticed my bravery ^^). I love her.

  45. My favorite thing I've made with the kiddies so far was magnets for their lockers (for the kids who are almost in middle school!). It was fun and I kind of went overboard on my 'example' and made this crazy glittery Twilight magnet that I loved so much I almost took home myself. Haha!

  46. My favorite school teacher was my algebra teacher in 11th grade. I went to visit him even after I graduated, and I invited him to my wedding (he's friends with my MIL) but he didn't come. That stung :( But I still like him. He was super nice and super helpful and had unconventional teaching methods.

  47. We just moved into a new house so I would probably make a "memory" album of photos of our house being built up to the finish. We could also make a "quilt" too.

  120. My favorite summer craft for kids is suncatchers using wax paper and bits and pieces of crayons. Using an iron, you melt the crayons between two pieces of wax paper and when the piece cools, you can cut the swirly piece of art into any shape you'd like. A piece of string or yarn can be added between the sheets before you iron for a hanger.

  148. My 2nd grade teacher was awesome. She started out as our long term sub and then stayed for the rest of the year. My mom and her became good friends that we were invited to her wedding. Then when we moved away she vacationed in the town we lived in and we got to visit again
