I have to admit something to you all.
I’m not a big crafter. I WANT to be one. I love creating things. I just don’t do it very often, I walk through a craft store and get overwhelmed, and the things most crafters have on hand constantly you’d be lucky to find in my house.
I sometimes feel bad for my kids, because I know they want to craft more. I believe it would help them be more creative individuals as well. Crafting can help them learn to solve problems; think outside the box.
These are all things that don’t necessarily come easy to me. I do try though.
That’s why when I heard about Crafters Crate, I was pretty excited. Yes I know, you see crate and you start thinking – here goes, another monthly subscription box. YEP! That is just what this is, but for crafters, and I would say more specifically for wannabe mom crafters like myself. Obviously Princess R was pretty excited as well – it meant real crafting time!
Crafters Crate comes with everything you need to make a number of different crafts. We got a crate of some fun summer crafts, and we still haven’t finished them up yet (ok we did move, we’re getting to them!). The girls were fighting over the fashion sandals, so I had to make a mom decision, and then let the other girls pick their next favorite to create. Mostly though, we worked together on all of them.
Right in the middle of wrapping Princess V’s sandals with twine, some friends stopped by to see if we could play. So together they wrapped and wrapped and wrapped those sandals, while Princess C and her friend put together the flower necklace.
So what did we finally think of the Crafters Crate? The kids loved having crafts that they could do virtually mom free, and although I loved I didn’t have to put any of it together for them, I was also sold on the sanity saver treat included. Shh, I may have snuck this out of the crate before any of the kids ever knew it was there!

I hear you Adelina. I am not much of a crafter either and my daughter loves crafting. I try to encourage people to give her crafting kits for her birthday. Things she can do on her own, because I'm not much use. Great looking set.
I don't craft much either but there are some things that I like. You asked what you should have in your closet. Here is what I have: glue gun and glue, fabric squares, felt, pipe cleaners, scrapbooking paper or wrapping paper, buttons, jigsaw puzzle pieces sorted into colors, pompoms, foam board and poster board, floral tape, colored floss, yarn, old calendars or magazines with colored pictures, stickers (wide variety of sizes and subjects), tempura paint, washable markers, crayons and colored pencils, beads, dowels of varying sizes, thin wire and a variety of stencils. You also need bins with drawers to keep it all. Now Adelina, that is a lot of stuff and I am a grandma so I have had some time to accumulate it. Start off with a few items and gradually add to it. If you want project ideas talk to me.
I really like your new party name and badge, awesome. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks so much for the party!
