Homeschool Hobbies and Handicrafts - Week 4

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.

My girls have enjoyed creating potholders, and the ironic thing is that my dad remembers creating them as a child. They love to see the patterns which arise when the colors are varied. I purchased a simple potholder loom when my oldest daughter was 5 years old. She quickly used up the loops that came with the loom, so I purchased more in bulk. They have not gone to waste. The loom has been used by all three kids and I now have potholders to last a lifetime. They also make a nice personal gift to aunts, uncles and grandparents from the kids.

  1. My kids build a Mousetrap Race Car with the help of their dad and learned about potential and kinetic energy in the process.
