Paw prints are the perfect keepsake craft to do with your pets. They are literally the pet version of preschool handprints. You can even color things around them to make more elaborate artwork. This post is not about making fancy paw prints, but about making safe paint so you can get creative with your pets, or just make a simple keepsake.
I always have a lot of fruit in my house, but we don’t always eat in in time. So when it starts to get a little over-ripe, I’m always looking for something to do with it before it goes bad completely. It’s usually smoothies, or milkshakes, but today, I decided to try making my own fruit flavored wood chew sticks. You can buy these at the pet store, but it’s so easy to make your own, and a great way to use up those last few berries.
For a while now, I’ve been seeing these super cute DIY projects for small mammals and I’ve been craving to craft one. So, I raided the recycling. This is what I do when I get an instant urge to make something; I go through the materials I have at home and see what I can hodge podge together. In this case I pulled together some shoe boxes, scrap fabric, and water bottles to make the adorable small mammal playground.
So all over Pinterest I have been seeing craft ideas with nail polish and water. If you haven’t done this yet, it’s worth a try just to see the effect. I first heard about it when I was doing a colors week with my kids. The idea is that you put clear nail polish in water and then quickly dip a piece of black paper in it. The result is a beautiful rainbow swirl on the paper. Several months later we used the same technique to marble different colors onto my daughter’s nails. So I got to thinking, why not try it on the cat bowl. We recently switched my cat from dry food to prescription wet food because he has some tummy issues so he was in need of a new bowl anyway. This project is cheap and easy, and so much fun to look at, you should definitely give it a try. If I had a bird I would choose colors that matched him; how much fun would that be?!
