Cactus Desk Organizer

This adorable cactus organizer allows you to pin messages and store supplies! Create your design using Model Magic air-dry clay – use green for a classic cactus, or have fun blending colors for various styles. Hold the clay in place with toothpicks and foam, then place it inside a small clay pot. You can also use your cactus for a decoration at your desk or home, or give it as a gift!

Coffee Filter Flower Wreath

This flower wreath is sure to brighten up Mother’s Day or your Spring craft program! Make this colorful gift using markers, water, coffee filters, paper towels, burlap, and a wreath shape. This also makes a great science activity for kids, where they can learn about how the color travels through the filter and spreads by diffusion.

Raindrop Suncatcher

This cool project is great for a rainy day Spring art project, or to celebrate Earth Day in April! Gather green and blue crayons, then use a pencil sharpener to create several shavings. These will be used to create the color in your suncatcher! You can hang the finished pieces on a wood dowel, or jazz it up with our wood arrows or craft rings.
