well it's march break here in my little part of the world: a week when the kiddies are off school and i'm always looking for fabulous & fun things to do and make and learn about with little rikrak, while keeping our budget low!

so i thought i'd gather a few fabulous handmaking with kids projects from around the blogosphere so all those parents & care-givers can have lotsa fun with these DIY-filled handmaking projects!

i've included some for little hands and some for older kids, too! we all need a little handmaking on the march break!
