Hi guys! I'm super excited to announce that I will be a regular contributor to the Handmade Charlotte website! For my first project, the kids and I crafted DIY Robot Hats! The COOLEST thing about these party hats is that you probably already have all the materials to make them, right in your home. If you hop over to Handmade Charlotte you can read and find out exactly what I mean--the big secret to making these just might surprise you! Come on over and show us your robot crafting moves!
Making a Galactic Marble run can be as easy as scouting around the house looking for supplies. Cereal box? Check. Aluminum foil? Check. Toilet Paper rolls? Check! Then find some marbles and shoot them through. A craft project that also doubles as a physics lesson? I say YES please!
For the full tutorial head over to our video and check it out!

Making your own cards for Valentine's Day is not only a smart move for your pocketbooks but it can be a fun art project as well. How about this idea? Your child can gift each person in their class with a piece of their original artwork. Have them simply paint on poster paper in an abstract way then once it dries cut out heart shapes which can be glued to cards. Write a special message and then deliver your original HEARTwork to all of your friends!
