I mentioned in my DLTK post that I'd gotten directions for making paper flowers from another website. Well, here it is! I've just recently found Simple Kids Crafts.
Simple Kids Crafts has instructions for all kinds of crafts for kids of all ages. They are "dedicated to reviving the old art of handicrafts, an art that has been
lost to fabricated toys."
But what's really awesome about this site is that all their instructions are on video! Have you ever read directions for a craft and wondered just how on earth it was supposed to look? This website is for you!
If you're a visual learner, this website is perfect for you. Even if you're not a visual learner, this place is a wonderful resource for all kinds of neat kids crafts, and don't worry - they also have written instructions for those of us that need the words before us.
Just be warned! I have yet to find an actual 'search box.' They do have a feature where you can checkmark a list of the materials that you'd like to work with and that will bring up all the crafts they have with those materials. A nice feature indeed, but if you're looking for a specific craft (like that paper flower we made), it might take a bit of searching.
And after just a few pages flipping through the 'Spring' category, I found the video on making a Mexican Paper Tissue Flower.
Cedric absolutely loved making these flowers, and made three of them! Elijah liked the idea of the flowers, but ended up only choosing out the colors, then had me actually make them.
