Back to School Crafts & Projects

A pile of things I'm itching to create and make to capture the end of summer, embrace the new school year, and think ahead to Christmas gifts:

Kicking off the school year

Marking Milestones. This modern take on paper cut-out silhouette and the painted growth chart, from the crafting chicks, let you capture the unique attributes of your child at the beginning of each school year.

Making back to school wardrobe accessories.  Here are some fun craft projects to enjoy making together before the back-to-school crazy schedule begins.  The washer necklace and flower hair clip are from the crafting chicks, and the recycled ruffle headband is from instractables.

Enjoying fun food treats. Capture the essence of summer with these faux watermelon jello treats or tickle their funny bones making these edible crayons from Gourmet Mom on the Go.

Looking ahead to Christmas and winter birthday gifts

Toy Kitchen & Laundry. These spectacular DIY projects, including a toy refrigerator, sink, stove, and washer/dryer, are from the amazing Ana at Knock-off Wood who makes every wood working project look super easy with her fabulous plans and drawings. There are also plans for a little library, post office and others to complete the little city.  There are more play kitchen designs from the Apartment Therapy Ohdeedoh website, many from repurposed furniture.
