Happy Friday, y’all!  Welcome to Playground Parkbench, and this week’s installment of We Love Weekends.  If you’ve never been here before, I’m Meghan, the Playground Parkbench Guru – SAHM to two girls, Big M and Lil’ M, almost 4 and almost 2, and 7 months pregnant with M3, our first boy.  I share parenting tips, mommy sanity savers, at-home activities for kids, and informed by former career in finance, financially savvy tips for the household CEO.  Each week, I team up with 4 of my fellow bloggers to bring you We Love Weekends, where bloggers from around the globe share their best family friendly content, and we feature our favorites from the past week.  This week, I’m featuring three simple crafts for kids – simple only in terms of materials, but bursting with creativity, fun and entertainment.

Featured Simple Crafts for Kids

This week’s featured posts all share the following in common: they use simple, basic and affordable materials, which you likely already have in your home to create a super unique and creative activity for kids.

Simple Crafts for Kids WLW Features 2015-07-17

First up, we love Sandal Art from Munchkins and Moms.  It just screams summer – flip flops, paint, crafting outdoors.  Your kids are sure to get loads of sensory entertainment from this one, and even create a unique, textured masterpiece while they are at it!

Next, I have a total obsession with trash to crafting treasure, so it is no surprise that I adored these Egg Carton Ladybugs from One Little Project.  A little paint, a few simple crafting accessories and your recyclable becomes a cute little critter.  Reminds us of one of our past favorites – Egg Carton Bumble Bees from Nemcsok Farms.  If you too enjoy a good trash to crafting treasure activity, be sure to follow our Bubble Wrap, Cardboard Box, Egg Carton, Paper Plate and TP Roll boards on Pinterest!

And last but not least, another awesome, but simple craft from Little Worlds, Big Adventures, that doubles as a great imaginative play accessory: Fairy Hair Braids.  All her posts make me want to be a kid again in her house!
