Getting Creative with Crayola Model Magic

Model Magic is a wonderful lightweight, spongy, unique modelling material for children to shape fun figures, blend, or cover objects and decorate. It is much easier to use than clay, and the non-crumbling formula sticks to itself and not our fingers. The finished objects are left outside to air dry, depending on the size of the craft shape it can take overnight or up to 72 hours to dry.

Show Your Love with Play-Doh

Children can show their love for their friends and classmates with Play-Doh. Instead of sending lollipops and candy we can send these 1 oz containers of play-doh, so our children can give their friends. Many parents and teachers will appreciate getting these containers of play-doh instead of candy, as it will keep children entertained and occupied for quite a while.

Crafts Made to Decorate The Table For Thanksgiving Weekend

I made these Thanksgiving themed crafts with my children, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® using material I bought from Michaels Arts and Crafts Store and things found around our home. 
I encourage my children to be thankful everyday and remind them about those who are less fortunate than us. I also teach them to be thankful for the bounties and mercy of God for providing us with everything we need. We made a table centrepiece, place cards and napkin rings to decorate our table when we have guests during the long weekend.
