Discover the World
Join us as we "bond
together" as creativity begins at home on this series of
Hands On Crafts for Kids. Enjoy a weekly feature using your
very own Family Craft Box filled with basic craft supplies.
Meet Franz Spohn bringing an artist's perspective to
imaginative projects that release your inner artist. Plus,
host Katie Hacker is joined by blogger Jenny Barnett Rohrs
sharing some hosting duties.
Let's discover the world
we live in and beyond. Katie and Jennie create a 3-D pop-up
map of the planets together, and Franz explores the artistic
use of dimension and space. Gather leaves, sticks and stones
and then Jenny shows how to create a nature journal. She and
Katie use water and paint to create a new fish species in
silhouette. Katie blasts off with a jet pack made from
recycled bottles and supplies from the Family Craft Box.
