DIY Colored Rice Tutorial for Kids

Look­ing for some­thing cool to do with the kid­dos over the week­end? Here are a few great DIY craft tuto­ri­als I came across this week.

DIY colored rice craft tutorial for kids

Rice is such a great medium for lit­tle bud­ding artists. This craft tuto­r­ial for DIY col­ored rice from Dana at MADE is an absolute must.

DIY Washi Tape Band-Aids for Kids

If your kids are any­thing like mine, Band-Aids are a fre­quent acces­sory. Why not make them pret­tier? I love this idea for dress­ing them up with Washi Tape. (via all washi tape)

diy fruit roll-ups for kids

Every­one loves to include a spe­cial treat when pack­ing their child’s lunch. These home­made fruit roll-ups are the per­fect healthy alter­na­tive, made using noth­ing but fruit (no other ingre­di­ents!). Head over to Love U Madly for the recipe and tutorial.

DIY wooden pencil holder

This DIY wooden pen­cil / marker holder from Craft & Cre­ativ­ity is super fun. I could totally use a few of these around the house!

DIY 9-Hole Buttons

You can stitch any let­ter with these fan­tas­tic 9-hole but­tons. All you need to make the but­ton is a tooth­pick, a wine cork, and some Sculpey or Fimo clay. Visit Design*Sponge for the tutorial.

    I love the washi tape band-aids, what a cute idea! and the let­ter but­tons sound like a great acces­sory for cus­tomiz­ing kids’ clothing!

    Oh me, oh my! I love these DIY ideas. The col­ored rice is too fun. The rus­tic pen holder is a lovely decor piece in and of itself. But those let­ter but­tons are inge­nious! Thanks, Rachel!
