A rainy week at the lake with the tremendous trio of Zeke, Lila and Allie (my son & niece & nephew) resulted in a craft bonanza. We made and we made and we made. Some projects created tangible results, while others were just about the process, man.
The list of our productivity is long: salt dough beads (a blast, and with many production stages so we could drag it on a bit–but the wet weather made the beads kind of soggy); paper beads (less soggy); marble painting (our paintings faded but rolling marbles through paint puddles was very intriguing); and tie-dye tees (and undies for those who just couldn’t get enough tie-dye!).
Here are some helpful links if you happen to find yourself in a damp summer cottage with a few stir-crazy kids:
Salt dough recipe from Crafting Connections
We used this recycled paper bead kit from Green Creativity but you can make them with skewers with instructions from Rookie
Marble painting instructions from First Palette
This youtube video from Jacquard Products really helped me perfect the tie-dye spiral

Thanks, Sarah! You, too!
This was so fun.
We want more
We must have missed the NH rain but looks like you made the best of it!
