If you have not picked up the Crayola CIY Book yet for your kiddos... do yourself a favor and grab it before Summer boredom kicks in. It also makes a perfect birthday gift for a kiddo! This week on my Crayola Facebook live broadcast I am sharing 2 crafts from the Summer section of the Crayola CIY Book and one of my favorites from Crayola.com. Below you will find an overview of the materials needed and you can watch the tutorials in my live broadcast.
