What is #20CraftsIn20Days?
2o Crafts In 20 Days started as a summer craft club for kids, but the crafts work great any time of the year! Christmas break? Spring break? Tie Dye coffee filters are Day 14, but my kids make them most afternoons while I get dinner together.
I’m started #20Craftsin20Days to hold me accountable to not use a screen as a babysitter. 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.
