School Crafts for Kids

Colorful Fabric Book CoverThe start of the school year can be tough for parents. School supplies are often expensive and don't always last long. Instead of heading to a big-box supplier and spending a fortune, have kids create their own personalized school supplies. Instead of spending money on a plain stretchy book cover, create your own Colorful Fabric Book Cover (p. 7) using old bandanas or scrap fabric. You can keep it simple or add a colorful pocket for pencils - it's completely up to you. Be sure to have kids customize each cover so they don't mix up their books. This is a great excuse to use up old fabrics or dispose of items you no longer need (but aren't prepared to throw away). No need to take a trip to the craft store! Instead, use scrap fabric - it's always a fun option.

Kids can also create magnets to display their work on the fridge and an adorable pencil topper. Moms and dads can help kids make a picture frame covered in pencils. On the first day of school, be sure to grab your little student and take a picture - you'll want to remember this day for many years to come. Display the image in this DIY frame - crafts for school have never been this adorable.

I agree. When I am told to 'click here for pattern,' I expect to see a pattern. I don't have time to go on a link clicking hunt to try to find it!


Oct 28, 2013

I used to like looking through the crafts, but now you can't even get through to the links. I liked it the way it was, and am going to remove my name from the e-mail list. Totally disappointed!


Oct 24, 2013

I am thoroughly disgusted with this cite and trying to get the patterns I clicked on not dozens of others places I have to go. Put it back it was before PULEEZE or give it up.


Oct 20, 2013

I agree....I'm not a teacher and not interested in school kids projects....I get e-mail with ideas that I would like to check out, and can never find it!! This is not going to be a place for me to go much longer if its not changed!

Free or not, this site needs to get its act together! Free doesn't necessarily give a pass to poor quality, and I hope they see these posts and respond accordingly to do a better job.

Free or not, they don't get a pass for producing sloppy work. I hope they read these critiques and respond accordingly and do a site that is worthy of their efforts.
