It’s our first crafting eBook for kids! Make Stuff is full to the brim of creative ideas using upcycled household items. Check out what’s inside and snag the eBook to spend some time creating with your family!
Raise your hand if you’re home with your kids! I’m no stranger to the fact that having young kids at home is hard. Fun, wonderful, lovely, but super hard. And sometimes one of the hardest things is finding ways to really connect with kids that’s both exciting for them and interesting for you.
Well friends, after your awesome response to the At Home Activity Book, it became loud and clear to me that parents are always hunting for creative ways to play, interact with, and teach their kids. Always. And since crafting is one of the things I do best (and love to do with my own kids), I thought it was high time that we put together a crafting eBook that’s specifically for families of all kinds!
Make STuff: A Crafting eBook for Kids and Families
And that’s how Make Stuff came about! From my desire to help adults connect with the kids they love through hands-on, creative activities that inspire imagination and bring them closer together.
This crafting eBook is filled with projects, activities, and ideas that are not just fun and creative, but awesome teaching tools. They encourage individuality and imagination. They teach patience and perseverance. And they are perfect for working on more specific developmental ideas like fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and more.

Who is It For?
Make Stuff is comprised of crafts and activities which are best suited for kids age 3-7. Each craft project is something that I have personally done with my own children, ages 3 and 5. Many two-year-olds would most likely enjoy much of the book’s content, but would need extra assistance to complete some of the projects.
Do note, that this eBook is meant to encourage togetherness and interaction between adults and kids, and kids most likely wouldn’t be able to complete the crafts on their own. Adult supervision and assistance is encouraged and recommended. These are projects that can help you find new ways to spend time together, while you’re creating something super fun!
If you’re looking for something that can supplement this, to help your kids also learn the value and skill of independence, check out our At Home Activities Book!
