Crafting with Pool Noodles

I like to use dollar store pool noodles for activities and crafts and save the more expensive versions for actually swimming. The dollar store version are slightly thinner making them the ideal width for cutting! Some of the fun ways to craft with pool noodles include painting, using them to shoot Pom Poms or (mini marshmallows!!), or make a bow and arrow!

TV Show: Curious Crafting

I’m so excited to finally share my new crafting TV show Curious Crafting which launched July 1 at on TVOkids and TVOkids YouTube!

This show is all about fun and easy crafts for toddlers and preschoolers. 

Set in the ultimate crafting space, Curious Crafting is a short form pre-school age series about the joy of making crafts. I lead a rotating cast of adorable little preschoolers (including my own) making magic out of common household objects.

In each episode we transform recycled items into magical crafts like a milk carton school bus, paper bag puppet or cotton pad turtle. The crafters learn and laugh their way through each activity while demonstrating what their young imaginations can create. 

Curious Crafting shares the adventure and joy of making art with takeaway lessons for creating crafts at home.
