Homeschool Hobbies and Handicrafts - Week 2

What have your kids been doing? "Homeschool Hobbies and Handicrafts" is a weekly link-up to share and show-off your kid's projects. Woodworking, knitting, crochet, weaving, paper airplane design, painting, drawing and so many more...... During school time, or when kids are finished - what are they spending their time on? Are they practicing instruments? Constantly crafting? Writing plays? Inventing new things? There are many blog-hops to share pre-school crafts, and many for adults. This one is for kids. Show-off their projects and talents!

Hand constructed furniture, needlepointed pillows, hand-made baskets, beautiful and creative photos, homemade videos...... Kid made items of any type are fair game and they don't need to be homeschooled. This is their chance to shine. What did they choose to make? What patterns/books/tools did they use? How did they get the idea? What inspired them?


Feel free to link-up a post you've already written and comment on the posts of others! I’m excited to see what your kids have created.

We learned a little bit about making wire jewelry at our local homeschool history co-op. When my daughter gets interested in a new handicraft so do I. The reverse is also true. If I get interested she will as well. It's funny how people can inspire each other.

Not long after the class I invested in a few jewelry making supplies. Although we are much better with a needle and thread it's fun to break out of the comfort zone. My daughter made this pin based off a pattern in the Celtic Jewelry book we bought. She has also made barrettes and necklace pendants.

What have your kids been up to?
