So what did Spud and I make? Well, a cityscape. Of course. He loves building cities. And we did it using stuff from the recycle bin. We also learned how to make paste paper to add texture to the front of our buildings.

And we turned it into a nightlight.

But there are 19 other projects that are perfect for little hands that run the gamut from mask making to felting to embroidery. You name it!

Here are a just a few that are going on our crafty to do list right now ...

So, want a copy of your own? Leave a comment here and I'll put your name in a "hat" for a random draw. If you want an extra entry then tweet this post tagging @jackieatweelife.

Contest will close Friday, June 8, 2012 at midnight. Good luck!

UPDATE: Contest is Closed! Thanks to everyone who participated. I will be drawing and announcing the winner soon!
