When school's out, it's perfect time for craft camp! Children and parents will enjoy the creative 40 projects in the Craft Camp book published by Lark. The projects include simple beading, sewing, felting, bookmaking and so much more. The book has ideas on how we can create colourful piñatas, eco-friendly mobiles, upcycled necklaces, hats, T-shirts, and many more projects. Children from 6 to 12 will find inspiring ideas in this book. We like the inspiring photographs that were useful when we were trying the projects. I would have preferred if there were more illustrations to accompany the written steps to make it clearer.

Sharpie® has launched a new product Stained by Sharpie, which is a marker to paint on fabric.
It is a brush tip with fabric ink that creates thick and thin lines. Ink is AP-certified and non-toxic. The paint doesn't fade on most fabric when washed on a normal wash cycle. It is suggested for best results the clothes stained by the markers should be hang to dry. There are eight vibrant colours sold individually and in packs of 4 and 8.
They could have added 2 more colours white and brown :)
Here is a design I painted on my daughter's shirt. All I had to do is keep a pad of paper under the shirt, so it doesn't stain the back of the shirt and paint on it. There was no need to iron or do any other step after painting. It was so easy that we are planning on colouring more fabric.
It makes it so much easier to personalize fabric items with these markers i.e. sending things to school and trips.
So get a hold of these cool Stained by Sharpie markers, and express yourself by turning your everyday items to something special anytime anywhere.
In April Sharpie and MuchMusic will team up to inspire and showcase Canadian Sharpie creations.
To win a prize pack $50 worth of products from Sharpie® please leave a comment on this post and tell me what would you do with these markers. The giveaway is open for everyone in Canada and ends on March 15th.

You will need...
fabric yo yos
Here is a link on how to make fabric yo yos.
Paint the fabric yo yos with fabric paint to dress up a simple shirt. It is easier to carefully paint inside the yo yo with a paint brush. If needed dilute the paint with a little water.
