Kids Only
Okay, kids...we didn't want to leave you out! Even though there are many recipes and crafts that you can make with Mom and Dad, we decided to add a few more just for kids. (Even though you might need Mom and Dad to help.) Sometimes it is fun to make gifts for Mom and Dad! Try the Tissue Paper Candle Holders. Use your artwork to wrap packages! What a creative artist you are!

Scroll down on this page and see all of the projects you can make. Just click on the Project Sheet you want and digitally download it for FREE. (You can print as many as you want.)
Tissue Paper Candle Holders
Recycle glass jars to use for a simple but beautiful project such as a pretty candle holder. The kids will love to make these for a special present for Mom or Grandma. No matter what shapes the tissue paper is torn or cut into, the overlapping makes it a pretty design. (Note: Never let children light candles.) Download the Project Sheet at the top of this page for instructions.

Kids Art Wrap
