Homeschool Hobbies and Handicrafts - Week 7

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.

I consider fuse beads a first handicraft. The kids started placing the plastic beads on the peg boards when they were about four years old. As they have grown their designs have increased in complexity. My daughter made a set of flags from fuse beads when she was 10. I'm not sure what inspired her to do this other than she thought it would be neat to see if she could create the designs with the beads. I think this would be a great activity to go along with a country unit study.
