Once the weather settles and the kids come down from their sugar rush from the Easter Bunny, Spring Break happens.  Time to find creative activities that are:

1. Inexpensive
2. Creative
3. FUN

And bonus points of they are not too messy!

These 12 Activités for Kids are just a beginning! You can check out my Fun With Kids Pinterest Board for hundreds of amazing ideas for all ages!

Another project for kids to sew is a service project.  My son made a pillow case for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge hosted by American Patchwork and Quilting. I shared my how to teach kids to sew tips & a link to the free pillowcase pattern on Monday Motivation: Teaching Kids How to Sew!

Playful Learning has a WINNING idea with this Matisse art project! Matisse is one of my favorite artists! Visit your local library and check out books ( this really hits the FREE buns point!) about your favorite artist. Then work with the littles or let the bigger kids just GO with making these exciting works of art!

We have successfully made this one before and it is pretty easy for the kids.  The 36th Ave Bouncy Ball  will be the highlight of the week! I do enforce a not in my sewing studio rule and prefer they bounce them either in the basement or outside! 


The flowers have started blooming in Virginia and are so pretty.  The Merry Thought DIY Flower Press is perfect for keeping some of the lovely florals we find! 

May your Spring Break be filled with fun and creativity!  Have a wonderful time making these 12 free activities with your kids, grandkids or maybe even your class!
