5 Craft Ideas for Mothers and Daughters

If you didn't make it to our "Make Lemonade" Retreat, have no fear! I am bringing the crafts to you! Here are the crafts I planned as well as the photo tutorials. I planned these as creative activities that moms with daughters ages 6-12 could do together. You can definitely make modifications based on supplies you have in your home or your daughter's interests.  Sources for most supplies are listed with each activity. See my previous post (here) for photos of the moms/daughters at the retreat with their crafty creations. Happy Crafting!

1. Beaded Necklace: The beads were ordered (here). The length of the ribbon is pretty long since we doubled it over. I didn't 'measure' with ruler. Instead I just used my 'arm span' to determine the length and then doubled it. The ribbon and needles are from Hobby Lobby.

-----------------------
 2. Flower Pen- Cut a flower using wire cutters from a 'bunch' of silk flowers. Then follow the directions as shown. The flowers are from Hobby Lobby and the pens are from the Dollar Tree.

 -----------------------
3. The Lemonade Journal: This is used to write notes back and forth to your daughter. You can write her a note and then place it under her pillow while she is at school. When she comes home, she can read it and write you back! The journals are from the Dollar Tree and the scrapbook paper is from Hobby Lobby. 

 -----------------------
4. Mini-Magnet Frame: This little frame is the perfect size for Instagram pics or to highlight a photo on a photo booth strip. The frames can be found via Etsy (here). Mod Podge, magnets and glitter are from Hobby Lobby. 


-----------------------

5. Painted Cross: This cross is a fun decoration! The crosses can be found (here). The paints are from Hobby Lobby. The images of the other crosses are via Pinterest- lots of great painted cross ideas there!
