9 Fun Crafts Ideas for Kids of All Ages and MONDAY FUNDAY Party

Monday just might be turning into one of my favorite days of the week! Why? Because it’s party time again, and I absolutely LOVE seeing all of the creative, crafty, and yummy projects that are linked up each week.

Last week, I participated in a little Craft Lightning and turned these ordinary votive candles into cool modern ones using colored zip ties. Yep, definitely look for more zip tie crafts from me!

And I made some really awesome custom coffee cozy sleeves as a great gift idea for Father’s Day. Honestly, they were so easy, I made a couple for myself too!

And, speaking of fun activities for kids, my daughter and I updated and personalized a pair of UGG style boots into one-of-a-kind fashion statements with puffy paint. They turned out so cute and they were so fun and easy to do!
