Mittens, Mittens, Mittens!

Happy winter! It is very cold here, so naturally my thoughts turned to mittens... and hot cocoa. Let's talk about mittens first - here's a great group of all things mitten-ish!
By the way, homemade cocoa is really easy and delicious!

Have a wool sweater that is too worn or outgrown to wear again? Turn it into Mittens, Cut and Sewn from Shrunken Sweaters. It is an easy project to machine or hand sew. Added to Sewing Projects and Recycled Crafts

Walk in the snow with your sweetie and keep warm holding hands with the Lovers' Mitten Added to Knitting Projects

These Crochet Mittens are designed for a women's size small, though you can modify them. They're crocheted in parts and then crocheted together. Great way to use up leftover yarn. Added to Crochet Projects

Ultra-practical, though a bit challenging, Broad Street Mittens, turn into "hobo" gloves when you need to get keys out of your purse, put on chapstick, etc, etc. Added to Knitting Projects

Protect your fingers from hot drinks and keep them extra warm, too when you knit a Coffee Sweater Added to Knitting Projects

Rather stay inside and get some crafts done? Me, too! Cross-stitch these Gingerbread Man Mittens for a sweet gift. I think this chart would also work up nicely in plastic canvas for a Christmas tree ornament or package decoration. Added to Needlecrafts Projects

While you're keeping the homefires burning, enjoy this cute video of Martha Stewart making Monster Mittens with a chatty first-grader who steals the show.
Close the video to view the directions and pattern. Added to Sewing Projects

If your kids always lose their mittens, perhaps they'll hang on to them if you turn them into puppets with these animal and people puppet knitted additions. Added to Knitting Projects

Most little girls will love these Bunny Hat and Paw Mittens. Too precious! Also great for a cold weather Halloween costume. Added to Sewing and Halloween Projects

The inevitable lost mitten can be turned into cute puppets using felt and fabric glue. Added to Kids Crafts and Recycled Crafts

Finally, when it's just too cold to go outside, keep them busy with mitten-themed activities. Added to Kids Crafts Categories: Halloween Crafts, Kids Crafts, Knitting and Crochet, Needlework, Recycled Crafts, Sewing

Rosie O'Donnell's Crafty U
100 easy projects the whole family can enjoy all year long

The new family crafts book by Rosie O'Donnell, Crafty U, is a comprehensive book of good-quality ideas and projects with large full-color photos and clear directions.

Every project has a gorgeous and large photo to show the final result. I find this is helpful to get the kids excited and to help them pick out a project. The directions are clear and laid out nicely. It's easy to see what materials you need.

With 100 projects, there are good variety of classic crafts and new ideas. They're organized into several themes - Everyday, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and Rainy Day. The Easter ideas were adorable and not too hard to do. The Halloween decorations and costumes are especially fun, too.

The projects are not rated by age, but are simple enough for five-year-olds and up, with help. They're clearly meant to be done together, kids and parents. Any areas that a grown-up must do is clearly marked.

Big thumbs up for this fun and well-done family crafts book.

Crayola Box of 64 Crayons Celebrates 50th Anniversary

The fine folks at Crayola Crayons sent over lots of info about the 50th Anniversary of the 64 Box. They celebrated today at the Times Square Toys R Us in New York City, which is a very special and fun store to visit.

At the event, eight new colors were unveiled, with names chosen online by 20,000 kids. They include Super Fun, Bear Hug, Famous, and others just as interesting. The Ace of Cakes from Food Network made a crayon box cake, too. See all the details in the video on YouTube

AllCrafts.net Arts & Crafts Book Review - Kathy Ross Crafts

Kathy Ross Crafts
Letter Shapes
Letter Sounds
Numbers
Triangles, Rectangles, Circles and Squares

Here's a delightful series of arts and crafts books to teach or reinforce letters, numbers, and shapes with your children. Kathy Ross is one of my favorite kids crafts authors, because the projects are age-appropriate and use common items. Most of the projects encourage further play and exploration, too. Best of all, they're always a hit with the kids!

Letter Sounds contains 29 different projects. Every letter is represented - from "Activity on an Anthill" to "Zipper-Bag Zoo Book." The last 3 projects use the entire alphabet. The final project uses and Altoids mint tin, a magnetic strip, construction paper and a hole punch to make a take-along letter builder in a box. Great for car trips and waiting rooms. Some of my other favorites inclued "Pear Print Penguins," "High-House Hat," and " Under an Umbrella."

Letter Shapes continues the theme - from Airplane A to Zinnia Z, with a few extra alphabet projects at the end. Each project is based on a pre-cut letter. If you're working with a group, they suggest using a die-cut machine. Most of the projects also include other words and images from that letter, which may give you more ideas to build on and talk about while making the project.

Numbers starts with a project for the numbers 1-10, but has several projects incorporating numbers - calendar markers, playing card counters, clock, cell phone, and more. I liked the "Bathtub Boat and Two of each Crayon Animals," which uses up the old crayons in the bin. "Seven-Day Story" also teaches the days of the week and encourages story-telling. "Gift-Bag House" helps kids learn their house numbers.

In Triangles, Rectangles, Circles, and Squares, each project focuses on one type of shape, and there are a five projects for each shape. Most are paper-crafts, with construction paper and glue. Each then uses one or two unique items from wiggle eyes to buttons. "Hairy Squarey" used an empty small pudding box as a decorated planter that grows grass seed. In triangles, we make a triangle handbell, triangle page markers and more. The square decorated post-it pad is a cute gift, too.

This series is great for those who need an introduction to letters, numbers and shapes, and those who could use a reinforcement. Beginning readers will also take to these creative projects and go far with them.
