Crafting Day with the Kiddos

Hello crafty friends. Today I want to share some pictures of how I spent my day last Saturday. I am so lucky to live within driving distance of my sweet grand-daughter, who is almost 2 years old. I packed up my car first thing in the morning with my craft supplies and hit the road to see my favorite girl and two of her friends.

Before the big day came I made t-shirts for the three girls.

I had bought the t-shirts a couple of months ago when they were on sale at Michael's Craft Store. The vinyl has been in my stash for awhile. It was left over from some t-shirts I made for a friend. The font is from the Cricut cartridge Feeling Groovy.

And the girls wearing their t-shirts.

Teagan will be one next week, Hailey just turned three and Khloë will be 2 next month. I had so much fun spending the day with them. Of course it was hard to keep up with them. They are FAST! Thank goodness their mommies were there to help.

Khloë was very excited to get started with the crafts.

The plan (haha, does that ever work with a 1, 2 and 3 year old?) was to make Christmas tree pictures with their hand prints and a footprint. It was actually a lot of fun and the kids had a great time. Each of the kids waited for their turn (well, maybe a little impatiently). And the end result was a great day making memories and beautiful pictures.

Happy crafting.


  1. OMG Cindy, you must of had a blast-than needed a nap when it was over. LOL. Kloe is the cutest little one, and she has adorable friends. Their finished project is so very clever, a great, to be treasured, memory.

    When my grandkids were young we had craft time too, was so much fun. Wish the Cricut had been around back than.

    Hugz, Donna

  2. Cindy - the shirts look great! And the kids project is very cute!

  3. This is the sweetest post!!! The t-shirts turned out fantastic! They foot-and-hand tree is awesome! I know they had fun!!! How smart of you to keep the mommies nearby!!!

    I'm going to have to remember that font on Feeling Groovy!!! What a great one!

  4. OMG this is sooo cute Cindy! What a great craft idea for the little ones and a little something for their moms to hang on to (and hopefully repeat yearly) for some great memories! Very smart of you to keep the Moms nearby. I get tired just crafting with one kiddo, let alone three! Great project!

  5. So cute! Looks like so much fun!

  6. Great job!!! I am going to show this to our daughter for her Daycare kids to do. She has 3 2-yr olds and 1 4-yr old. Should make for an interesting day.


Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
