New Kids Krafts Schedule

Kids Krafts Virtual Summer Arts Program

Many of the projects can be done with toddlers and preschoolers as Mommy & Me projects. If you are homeschooling and need lesson plans I will gladly write them for you. All videos are on Wednesdays at 3:00. To-Go Baskets for Kids are only $10 and can be delivered (if local) or mailed.

August 26 Hand & Foot Print Art

Grillin #2

Jeremy promises that he will help us make a Daddy’s Grilling Plate using his hand prints. Following the lesson there is a ten-minute PowerPoint presentation of projects using the hand or foot prints of babies and children. What a great idea for the kids and a nice gift for parents and grandparents.

September 2 Cookie Cutters & Clay

Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter

We will roll out some clay and use a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter direct from Disneyland in California to make a small trivet or large coaster. When dry it can be painted and glazed. After firing we add some sheet cork to the back and it’s ready to use on your table or give as a special gift.

September 9 Autumn Leaf Pasta Bowl

Ann Original Pasta Bowl (leaf silkscreen)Today we will use leaf silkscreens to decorate a pasta bowl, then paint the leaves in bright fall colors. After painting we will spatter the whole thing and add a border to frame our picture. Perfect to hold Halloween candy or use for cereal or soup. What is more special than a bowl that your child painted themselves?

September 16 Glaze Raking Spider Web

September 23 Clay Puzzling Spider

clay spiderToday we will use potters clay with a special mold to form a hollow ball. Then roll and attach ropes of clay for the legs and small balls for the eyes. Using a tool, we will add dimension to the spider. After drying for about a week, we can fire and then stain or glaze our spider.

September 30 Shaving Cream Pumpkins

(Remember, the bell had to be glazed so that it will ring.)  Choose a variety of oranges, reds, yellows, and browns. Here we used copper to add some squiggles and paint the stem.


Facebook Live Adult Workshops

These are technique workshops for adults. However, older children can do most of the projects as well.

August 28  Halloween Plate with Sponge It’s

sponge it samplesOur holiday sponges are on the way! Yeah! We will do something like this. We already did a Sponge It’s workshop with flowers in the Kids Krafts videos. This tree was added by the artist freehand but we do have a silkscreen we can use.


Next week I hope to have a new schedule for the adult workshops.

Carol’s Carousel Creations
