 Welcome to another day of #SummerCamp.  Every Tuesday and Thursday I’ll be sharing projects that are  #KidFriendlyProjects and/or #FamilyFriendlyProjects.  I hope to inspire you to turn this summer into a creative one for your kids, your grandkids, or any kid you have a chance to be creative with this summer.  After all, they are the next generation of creative souls and we need to encourage their creativity!

I fondly remember being creative as a child, using supplies that we could easily find to be creative without big expenses.  There are many such projects today, but they are frequently overlooked.  I’m delighted to showcase kid friendly projects, that are actually quite economical, and you may have overlooked. These are actually projects, packed with #CreativeGoodness, that are on my list of Favorite Tutorials.quiltshopgal's favorite tutorials

These tutorials also make for wonderful #SummerCamp creative activities for kids, as well as family craft times.  I hope they inspire you to find time to get your kids, grandkids, or any other kids to be creative this summer.



Here are my favorite tutorials for creativity using toilet paper rolls for creativity:

Little Girl Designs has a tutorial showing how to use empty toilet paper rolls to make Woodland Critters.

  1. Many years ago, when I was in high school, (the mid 70s really were a long time ago) some of us art students were asked to provide some art lessons to the grade schools, I agreed. I tried to gear the lessons with the age of the students, while the older grades got actual art lessons, the younger kids basically got craft projects. This comes to mind because I remember having the first graders saving toilet paper rolls and we made Santa Claus and snowmen, with bits of cotton, felt, fabric and construction paper. Thanks for them memory.
