Critters and Creatures
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.

Inspiration comes from animals and creatures – real and imaginary. Katie makes a 3-D owl with textured wings makes a great decoration for any room. Franz and Katie make creature creation a team sport by drawing three-part fantasy animals together. Jenny looks to the sea to find inspiration for a jelly-fish made from re-cycled materials then Katie creates a glittery clay lizard textured with found items. From the Family Craft box make a pair of bear claw slippers made from tissue boxes.
