Admittedly, I’m not the most creative mom on the planet. But I want to have more fun with my kids, especially while they’re still young.

So, I found an adorable craft to help me in my quest to become a fairy craftmother.

My husband is going out of town next week. Whenever he’s not home, I tend to become a taskmaster who need to get everything done in a timely manner. But I’m afraid this makes me a not very fun mom.

So the kids and I are going to make some crafts to take advantage of our time together. Even people who generally don’t like crafts will probably enjoy this one!

You’ll need:

  • Cotton balls
  • Solo cup
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • 4 clothespins
  • Black construction paper
  • Black marker
