Getting Crafty

May/June 2020

Here are some clever ideas to entertain the youngsters. Stained glass two ways: on your windows with painter’s tape or masking tape and washable Crayola paint with a little water and dish soap mixed in; or on the sidewalk with tape and chalk. Beautiful, fun and cleans up easily.
