Whether you’re a seasoned DIYer or just a beginner, Babble’s third annual Top 50 Mom Craft Blogs will inspire you. The moms on this list offer an incredible variety of ideas for DIY crafts and accessories to try with the kids — or by yourself. (Don’t worry: we won’t tell anyone how easy most of them actually are!) Thanks to our panel of craft lovers and industry insiders, you’ll see some new names on this list along with old favorites. And if we missed a crafty mom you love, please nominate it in the comments. Glue guns at the ready! — Amy Reitersee the full list »

The What’s What: The motto of Modern Parents, Messy Kids (MPMK, for short), also on last year’s list, is “mindful living, effortless style.” You’ll find creative activities to captivate your kids, thought-provoking discussions about parenting, tips for organizing your life, stylish finds and DIY projects. And at MPMK, projects don’t exist in a vacuum: That means you won’t only learn how to make soft, sweet-smelling homemade play dough using Jell-O (“because it just wouldn’t be an MPMK post without some sort of twist”) – you’ll also find tips on how to help your kids play with it creatively and fully reap its imagination-stimulating, fine-motor-skill-improving benefits. It’s sort of an added, thinking-parents’ bonus.
The Mama: MPMK founder and managing editor Steph is the mother of two toddlers who, with her team, seeks to inspire parents to simplify, connect and live well. Who couldn’t benefit from doing more of that?
