Stamp art for kids
This concentric circles and abstract art was easy and fun (and addicting!) to make!  Do you know what we used to create these pretty circles?

I just took our True Meaning of Easter or Jelly Bean Story Rocks out so we can use them again this year. They are such a great way to go over the Easter story. Each rock's color and words has a special meaning.

When I was little, my mom and aunts would give us kids projects that would decorate the holiday tables. This project from +Jackie Currie reminds me of those fun crafts.   #kbn   #eastercrafts
