What is #20CraftsIn20Days?
I started #20Craftsin20Days to hold me accountable to not use a screen as a babysitter (as much) in the summer. That’s right, I said it. I’m guilty, but I want to do better. I want my kids to use their creative muscles, but I know I need a plan and some accountability if I’m really going to make this happen.

Goal – Encourage Creativity
The goal of #20Craftsin20Days Club is to encourage creativity! The goal is not to add more things to your to do list or add to your mom guilt that you’re not doing enough. If you need a day off, no worries. If you do the same craft 2 days in a row, who cares! The idea is to simply get your kids creativity flowing and arm you with tons of easy, fun ideas.
What kind of crafts will we make?
If you’re curious about the kind of crafts we will be doing, here are all 20 crafts from 20 Crafts In 20 Days 2018! We will have 18 brand new crafts for 2019. I let each of my kids pick their favorite craft from last summer to keep on the 2019 list. Hint: My son picked a craft rhymes with blime.
