To-day I would like to share a pretty DIY chocolate heart shaped candy box.

A little bit of paint and then some modeling paste through a stencil and the base was ready for embellishment.

DIY FUN ANY TIME

Hello and Welcome...

Today, I would like to share a fun easy DIY for the kids.  This would be a great activity to share time together with any member of the family.

Think of the possibilities.

New Year's Day
Valentine's Day
St. Patrick's Day
Easter
Mother's Day
Father's Day
Flag Day
Independence Day
Thanksgiving Day
Christmas

Here is my cute paper frig magnet that I made for St. Patrick's Day.

Let's see how easy this Kid DIY is, so that you can plan an easy craft with the young ones.  You will definitely have a happy crew on your hands.

Start with the template.  This pattern and instructions are found at Mouseearsmom.com  Link is posted below in the supply list.



I changed the format from craft foam to cardstock.  I would imagine you can make this project in many different mediums, so have fun mixing it up.

Cut out your pieces from cardstock.  Place your pieces through the Xyron sticker maker.



Peel back the facing sheet and assemble your mickey hat.

Punch out your white dots with a one hole punch while the glitter paper is still attached to the sticker maker adhesive sheet.

The Mega tape adhesive Runner is perfect for attaching the hat and bow onto our mouse heads.
Adhere the magnet on the back of the heads if wanting to use on the frig.


So cute....



Now lets get creative and make a bunch of these cute mickey's and mini's for all the season.  You will be a hit with the Kids....

Supplies:
Xyron, Magnet Tape
Cardstock


Which theme of ears are you going to make, let me know.
Thanks for visiting and commenting, appreciated.
