At our house, we’re not afraid of a little mess. We pull out the playdough, finger paints, and clay with zeal. I’ve noticed though that not all of my friends hold my love of a messy craft. Although the kids totally love it, at times the clean up can seem a little daunting for the parents.
It’s nice to embrace it though, my friends – because creative kids are worth the mess. So, go ahead, get messy! This DIY kit is meant to spark a little creativity and maybe a wee bit of mess too. Embrace it!

I’m loving this series of baskets you’ve been making! What a terrific idea for the whole family.
Thanks Heather, it’s been a blast!

Looks like a basket of fun to me! 😉
Me too 🙂 Glad there are some other mess makers still out there.
What a fun gift! It is the gift of time as well as the gift of creativity and I guess getting super messy but with a purpose! Love it!
Thanks Thea, making messes can be fun!
