It wasn't until around the time Natalie turned two that I really started to have a love for crafts.
For crafts related to specific children's book titles, look under my "literacy tie in" tag / label. At this time (May 2012) there are crafts for Piggie and Elephant, Mouse Paint, and Clifford. Also, I try to add books to read that relate to the crafts in all posts.
Here is a link to my favorite craft items.
Things You Can Make for Your Kids: (older kids could make these as well)
Ziplock bag book (content can be so many things!)
High Contrast Designs for Newborns
Super Easy Baby Blankets
Bubble Solution (water, dish soap, corn syrup or glycerin)
Box of Princesses (A friend of mine shared this with me. She made her's even cooler by adding boys, like Superman, Spiderman, a pirate, and a knight!).
