Winners of the Summer Kids Crafts Challenge

This was a fun week and I loved all of the Summer Kids Crafts.  You all amazed me by your talent this week!

 There is so much talent out there and I am so honored you came here to show off!!!

Be sure to go through the links and find some inspiration for yourself.

Our guest judge, Shelly from  Dolen Diaries, had the most difficult job picking the winners. I think she did a great job!


Shelly  had the hard task of selecting the winners, so let’s see how she did. Here is what she said about her judging experience.

Thanks SO much for having me! It was a lot of fun checking out new blogs and getting ideas for projects I want to do with my kiddos!! Without any further ado here are my faves from this week’s contest!

* Note: only 6 winners this week

And the winners are…….Drum roll Please!

Judge’s comments in BOLD!

#6 Kid Created Canvas Art from Homemade Ginger

I love how Megan got her girls involved in creating art for their space. Such a fun and easy way to let your kiddos put their own stamp on their space!


#12 Painters Tape Canvas Art from Michelle Paige
This project was a close 2nd for me! I love how modern and cool it looks! It definitely doesn’t scream kid craft so it could go anywhere.

#1 Exploring Journals from Crafting in the Rain
 How fun to have the kids design their own journal! What a great way to keep kids writing over the summer while enjoy the outdoors.

#10 Balloon Bracelets from Michelle Paige
I have never seen this done before! Very clever!
#3 Fairy Garden from Apple House Revival
What a magical space for the yard! I can only imagine the great creative play that could go along with this garden!

#5 Operation 50 States from Little Blue’s Room
This is one seriously impressive cardboard suitcase! I can’t wait to see what they put inside!
#9 Watermelon Headband from Sweet Pea
Watermelon Headband by
If I had a girl, we’d be making one of these!
