New things will be added often, including some fun challenges and giveaways. Please subscribe to our daily email so you won’t miss any of the first Snappy Summer Camp.

Theme for this week: It’s a Zoo!


Zoo Crochet

Some of the first Moogly projects I saw were her cute Jungle Finger puppets and carrying case. Each of the little animals would be quick crochet projects and fun for all ages.

After following “Make and Takes” website for quite awhile now, I would love to get this book. Her offers so many fun things, including great crafts for kids. The Amazon listing describes the book as “Highlighting the best of each month of the year, Make and Takes for Kids offers 50 projects to make with kids, each centered around an upcoming holiday or season.”

Another site I enjoy for kid’s crafts is “All Free Kids Crafts

When visiting large, crowded areas with kids, like a zoo, it is important to remember safety first! Not everyone is a fan of the kid backpacks with the strap attached, but I love the idea of little ones being able to explore and not getting lost. Think of it as an extension of your hand. It isn’t a “leash” unless it is misused.
