Rainy Day Barrettes

I’m the type of mom who, when barricaded in the house by a torrential downpour, needs to get out of the rut of  the paints- crayons -dvd routine. For something extra special for my daughter on those kinds of days, I’m loving the Kid Craft Kit at Happy House Quilts, created by mom and art therapist Jodi Doody.

You will indeed be the coolest mom ever when you whip out one of these kits, which includes everything you need to make three adorable felt barrettes. Stick with the basics, or make use of the sequins and beads if you–or your kids–are feeling extra creative.

You don’t even need rain to enjoy these time-killers; we think they would make a wonderful birthday party activity as well. And from what I can tell, absolutely no crafty genes required. -Kristen

Congrats Catherin G. Winner of her own kit!
