I have a confession to make: I am not a Pinterest mom. I would love to say that I have beautifully structured days for my kids; we do science experiments and arts and crafts each day. But we just don’t. When my daughter’s school closed down last March for COVID, I thought this is it! I can be that mom. Turns out, after about a week or so, the exhaustion of planning and shopping for everything caught up with me. I needed easy. So with that in mind, I created Happy Little Crafts.
How can Happy Little Crafts help me?
Excellent question! My goal with Happy Little Crafts is to make craft kits that are fun for kids, but easy for parents. No need to plan or run to the store to get everything (because let’s face it, no matter what, we always forget that one important item). Instead, all you will need is neatly packaged and ready for assembly.
What kind of crafts will there be?
So far, I’m focusing on holiday and seasonal craft kits. The Thanksgiving Craft Bag was my first kit, and I received a lot of positive feedback from it, and many requests for Christmas crafts (stay tuned- those will launch soon!).
My dream is to eventually have a monthly subscription kit to make it even easier for parents (or to give as gifts!). Set up an account, and have a craft box magically arrive at your home each month without needing to do anything else – how easy is that?!
What crafts for kids do you want to see?
One thing that has been so fun is to hear requests for upcoming kits. I’ve had generic “please make winter kits” to specific craft ideas. I love hearing how families want to incorporate crafts into their celebrations.
I want to hear from you – what do you want? Parenting is hard. Parenting during a pandemic is harder. I am here to make it a bit less complicated for you! Post any and all suggestions below.
