Winter Craft – Ice Slime!

This is a really easy and inexpensive project ā€“ And . . . kids get a kick out of it. If you take the time to make this with a child that you know, they will be very thankful. I’m glad I took the time to make this with Nicole. In fact, we had so much fun that we made several batches. Here is the video tutorial link.

Fanciful Pine Cones

There is something fun about nestlingĀ little balls inside of pine cone crevices. I found these projects at vital-design, but I don’t recommend visiting their site. When I did, a whole bunch of pages began opening up with ads and whatnot. They wanted people to download the project instructions which I am leery of doing. Why not just post them online? It’s like they want to give out a virus with it or something. I’m just too skeptical. Anyway. Some round objects and a bit of glue could get you some pretty fancy looking tree ornaments. This would be a great project for kids. The first photo appears to be round beads wrapped in colorful paper. If it were me making that particular project, I would use decoupage glue and tissue paper; or thin, colorful, patterned paper scraps. Finally, I’dĀ tieĀ some beautiful ribbon or string through the one end to create an ornament.
