Some Pinterest craft ideas

I'm checking Pinterest for some new ideas for easy kids crafts. Love decorating bottles. This might be something to do for Mother's Day.

Our Pinterest-inspired Mother's Day craft.

These flowers are really cute made from pool noodles. I would think you could "slice" them to the desired thickness and use a cookie cutter to make the flower.

Some more cute flowers with cup cake liners. These would be easy.

Toilet paper rolls covered with scrap book paper. Not sure what the cap on the bottom is made from.

They used TOILET PAPER ROLLS to make this! Folkart Acrylic Paint – 516 Light Lavender, 524 Calypso Sky, 741 Glazed Carrots, 654 Metallic Amethyst, 651 Metallic Blue Topaz, 663 metallic Bronze    Crackle Medium – 696, 3 toilet paper tubes, 3 small clay pots – 1 ½” x 2”, Glue, Flat brush – ¾”, Artificial flowers

My kindergarten Sunday school class loves working with beads and pipe cleaners. This might be a good idea for them.

I saw on Oriental Trading that they have glow in the dark beads. Both my Sunday school classes would enjoy making glow in the dark bracelets. I have found that pipe cleaners are the very best thing to use in bead crafts. The beads don't slide off like they do on the rubbery string that comes in jewelry kits and the kids have more control over them. The ends are easier to knot than tied that plastic string.

Well, that gives me a few ideas for the older kids for the next few weeks.
