Outside and In

Join us as we "bond together" as creativity begins at home on this series of Hands On Crafts for Kids. Enjoy a weekly feature using your very own Family Craft Box filled with basic craft supplies. Meet Franz Spohn bringing an artist's perspective to imaginative projects that release your inner artist. Plus, host Katie Hacker is joined by blogger Jenny Barnett Rohrs sharing some hosting duties.

Let's step outside and find inspiration for more projects. Store toys or hang a plant in a pail in the brightly-colored macramé hanger Katie shows how to make. Create an illustrated map of your own backyard – Franz gives you some great ideas. Jenny helps you become forest royalty in a woodland crown made of felt and found objects. Then, Katie cheerfully decorates a lightening bug jar to study some nighttime friends. Gather moss and use the Family Craft Box to create a house for friendly fairies.
