Fight the Back To School Blues!

Candy Jar
Do you have perky kids raving about all things school at your house? Or have you discovered someone suffering from back to school blues? For the few who are less than enthused - We have a cure! Create one of our enjoyable and easy crafts with your kids to lift a bit of the blues. And watch the smiles emerge. (They may be slow at first...but keep at it until you see those eyes twinkle.)

Candy Jar
Create this treat saver from supplies you have around the house, plus some goodies - it makes the perfect teacher gift, or just a fun cheery way to display after school treats!

Colorful Sun Catchers
The sun catcher craft involves shaving crayons and cheese graters - definitely a hands on experience, but probably best for elementary age kids to create.

Craft Stick Heart Frame
This sweet little number is a win win! Create a simple craft stick frame to display an adorable school picture. Simple, inexpensive and creative.

Flower Pot Kids
A cheery garden-inspired craft, the flower pot lets your kids paint and decorate to their hearts' desire and then add a sweet photo as the finishing touch.

Keepsake Handprint
This is one of my personal favorites - get some model clay and paint and create the perfect keepsake gift for grandparents, parents or to preserve for posterity. You'll also need a hand!

These crafts are sure to help bust the boredom and back to school blues, or just to add a little creative fun to the week or weekend. Connect with us on Facebook and share your favorite back to school craft or visit The Idea Box to find many more kid-friendly ideas and activities.
