As most would have us believe, spring break is a week filled with camps for kids, vacations or for college kids a time to let loose and party. But what about those who would rather just take a mini staycation and spend their time being creative? Well your local Ballwin movers have put together a list of spring break crafts for you to try this spring break!
- DIY Lace Shorts
Lace shorts are a very popular wardrobe item, but it can be very expensive to find a cute pair. The question is, why not make your own? Saving money with your spring break crafts will make everyone jealous once they get back from spending their money. Lace shorts are very simple to make and all you need is some basic sewing skills, lace and a pair of white shorts. String the lace around the shorts and attach with your needle and thread. In less than an hour, you can have a brand-new item to add to your wardrobe.
- Make Your Own Crayons
Ballwin movers know that kids love crayons and what better way to spend some quality time with your kids than creating your very own crayons with them? Making their own crayons will give your kids the opportunity to have ownership over something they both made and can use on a daily basis. To help your kids make their own crayons, you will need silicone ice cube molds and some old crayons.
Utilize the broken crayons or if you want to mix things up, try breaking some apart yourself to make new color twists! Next, place the crayon pieces in your molds and place them in the oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for about 5 to 10 minutes. Once the crayons have completely melted, use a toothpick to remove any air pockets the crayons may have and then remove the crayons from the oven. Allow them to cool for 20 minutes and then place the crayons inside the freezer. This will solidify the crayons and allow you to remove them from the molds. Your kids will be thrilled with to have new vibrant and colorful crayons to play with!
