I really love doing crafts with my kids, but I am not one of those moms to whom endless creativity abounds.

One craft we have really enjoyed recently (and that is very inexpensive) is wet felting.

It is something that even the littlest of hands can enjoy and it is a mess that is not overwhelming.  The projects come together quickly and are very satisfying for little ones.

Felt can be purchased locally in many areas and it is sustainable.

And all you need to wet felt is wool roving, water, soap, and hands that are ready to roll!  You can make simple crafts such as balls (which my kids love) and you can make much more elegant things such as scarves, bags, purses, or little figures.

Give it a try!
