Others may have a different opinion or experience with the product listed above. I was provided the sample free of charge by the company or PR agency and I have given my honest opinion.

How to make a fabric scrap matching game - upcycled jean scraps make for a fun memory game and a Cricut cuts out iron-on designs super easily. Tutorial for how to make the simple matching game and links to the project on Cricut Design Space.

I know not everyone keeps upcycle fabric scraps, but I try to use up every last bit of a garment. With a little help from Cricut, I’m sharing how to make a fabric scrap matching game from upcycled jeans! My kids are currently crazy about dinosaurs, but it would be simple to tailor this to any other animal, cartoon character, or even basic shapes. This is an easy handmade game tutorial that you can tuck in in your suitcase for a summer vacation or save it for when winter has you snowed in. Right now we have 100+ temperatures, so this game was a welcome distraction to stay inside and play!

Looking for a gift to make with kids that will actually be used? This finger painted bookmark tutorial is a simple sewing project for beginners, but is fun to paint, too!

My Mom was always tinkering, crafting, and making something by hand when I was growing up. I love honoring that memory by making her handmade gifts, and it is even more fun when I can involve my kids! It can be a challenge to come up with gift ideas kids can help with that will actually be used and enjoyed (macaroni noodle photo frame, anyone?) but I love the resist painting method.
