    Handprint Wall Art
    This is a great one for older children. Have them trace their hands, cut them out and then adhere to a piece of wood. They can also do the simple embroidery, and the result is a unique and personalized piece of wall art.

    Kids will have a blast collecting the stones for this project. The trick is to find the smoothest stones possible! Cut fabric scraps shaped like hearts and Mod Podge onto the smooth side.
