Kids Crafts Linky Party #14: Terra Cotta Pot, a Beach Scape, and Name Art

For Mother's Day this year, Sean and Zoom made me a very cute terracotta pot, covered in shells that we'd collected together at the beach. They covered the bottom portion of the pot with ceramic grout, smoothed it with a plastic "club card" (the ones like a credit card). Then they pressed the shells into the grout and let it dry. Look at how cute this is!

This week, we have a couple of awards to give out.

The "Best Craft by Kids" Award goes to the Toddler Name Art submitted by the House of Woyaks. This idea is super cute, and looks like a fairly easy way to let a toddler create a one of a kind piece of art for their room. I love that it is simple and easy for really little kids.



The "Editor's Choice" Award goes to the Beach Playscape posted by "Taming the Goblin," which is a super cute summer project! This one is a tiny scale beach that encourages play and exploration.

Thanks so much for featuring me. I'd love to put your "i was featured" button on my blog but I can't get it to work. Has anyone else had problems or is it just me?
