Top 10 Kids Crafts of 2012

Top 10 kid-friendly crafts of 2012 from Babble.com

As kids, we were all crafters. Whether it was in art class in school or idly doodling on the pages of our favorite coloring books with wild abandon, crafting is simply and beautifully second nature to kids. I love the idea of instilling this joy for creating in little ones by engaging them in artistic endeavors and filling their imaginations with inspiration drawn from handmade toys and games. Today I have one last round-up of DIY ideas to share with you , this one all about the best crafts to make for kids or with kids from the craftastic year that was 2012!
