Chinese Lantern Sun Catcher

Chinese Sun Catcher lantern from the gingerbread house. Easy craft to do if you have really little kids Actually, used contact paper I had leftover from another craft. So happy because it’s not always fun to play with 2 year olds and glue. Especially, when you are out manned.

Year of the Pig

Origami Pigs

2019 is the year of the pig. Each year we make origami animals based on the year. This year we attempted to make origami pigs out of dollar bills. But that was an epic failure. But if paper folding is your thing you should try your hand at it.

Here’s another origami pig tutorial from Origami Amazing.
