Break out your macaroni, glue sticks and glittery pom poms, its National Craft Month!
We are celebrating in The Scholastic Store by holding events every Saturday for 3 weeks straight in March, each one featuring a newtitle from Klutz! The staff and I have definitely been having fun practicing for them. Clay Charms
is super cute, Dot Jewelry
is elegantly simple and Star Wars Thumb Doodles
is just plain cool! (When you can make Vader with a fingerprint and a pencil
who needs the Force!) The great thing about these (and all,) Klutz books is that everything you need is included. Its perfect for novice crafters. (
and for experts, like Lauren, there are more difficult projects included in most books.)
Of course, you also might have an itch to do some crafting with what you have in your home or classroom
fear not! The creative minds at scholastic.com have been busy crafting their own ideas!
Teachers will LOVE the 29 separate ideas in this article(with video instruction!) There are even crafts for Clifford
and Where the Wild Things Are!
And over on the Parents channel, there are TONS of other options, including:
Springtime Wind Chimes
A Make Your Own Calendar(maybe to count down to when you can use those wind chimes!)
In all, there are over 200 craft activities on the site, so feel free to browse!
