This Memorial Day, between the traveling and the togetherness, crafting could be a way to bring the kids into the meaning of the celebrations. I'm not sure if I'm going to attempt much after my Sunday afternoon sewing badges onto a Cub Scout dress shirt- those patches are stiff! If you have any tips on making that easier, please let me know; otherwise, my zeal for earning badges is going to wane pretty quickly.
And we're only just starting!
I'm sure I'll still be tempted by these projects. I love these eagles (or for our youngest, "gee-gulls") made out of handprints. Happy Home Fairy for the win:
