Martha Stewart’s Favorite Crafts for Kids: Book Review and Giveaway!

Several weeks ago, I was contacted by Martha Stewart’s publicist and asked if I would like to review Martha Stewart’s Favorite Crafts for Kids book. I did my happy dance and said yes and I am so glad I did.


Martha’s new book is amazing! There are over 175 projects for all ages varying in complexity. Many of the projects are created with items you already have at home. Whew! You will love this book and so will your children or grandchildren. What a great gift for a teacher or grandparent.


These puppets were super simple and fun to make. I followed the directions in the book using lunch size paper bags and the provided templates. I can’t wait to try this project with my nephew Landon. He will love these!


There are numerous holiday projects in Martha Stewart’s Favorite Crafts for Kids book and I cannot wait to try them all with my nieces and nephews. I loved the idea of making quick and easy gift tags with leftover buttons and your children will too! This project was so easy.


I can’t wait to try this project. My nephew is going to love collecting and painting rocks! I know I will!

Now for the amazing giveaway. Thanks to Martha Stewart, one reader will win a copy of her book as well as some fun surprises from the Martha Stewart Crafts collection. I love surprises and you will too!!

To enter to win, you need to be a subscriber or follower of my blog. You can sign up over on the right side of this blog (if you are not there already). And leave a comment under this post, only one comment per person please. For an additional chance to win, please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you have not already, and leave an additional comment on this post that you did.

You have until midnight MDT on Tuesday July 23rd to enter and the winner will be announced on Wednesday July 24th.
