Kids Crafts – Origami Storage Box

Folded Paper Storage Box Easy Origami for Kids

Use a regular sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper to make this fun folded paper storage box.  It’s an easy origami project for kids and it’s useful too – store extra craft supplies or summer treasures in these little boxes.  Make two in the same colour, so one can be the base and one can be the lid!  Watch the Step by Step video hosted by our little helper

Father’s Day Idea: Body Spelling A Special Message

Kids In the Shape of the Letter 'D' ‘D’ is for Dad!  All you need is a patch of grass, your camera, and the kids for this special Father’s Day Activity!  Have the kids lay on the grass in different ways to make the letters ‘HAPPY FATHERS DAY’  Put all the pictures together to make one very unique and special card for Dad.  We’re going to turn this into a digital card, since Dad will be away from home this Father’s Day.
