Easy Crafts for Kids with Family Fun Magazine {Giveaway}

I picked up my first Family Fun magazine at Disney World (ironically, considering where I just came from this week) many years ago and was instantly hooked.  As an art teacher, I was always looking for interesting, fun, and cheap ways to get kids creating and crafting, and Family Fun was filled with great stuff, including kid-friendly recipes.  Plus the Family Fun website is a treasure trove of activities too.

I've been a subscriber for a while now, even prior to having kids, and I look forward to it arriving in the mail each month (psst, you can get 10 issues for 10 bucks via their website!).  I was recently sent a special edition of Family Fun, called Easy Crafts for Kids.
The issue, available on newsstands from now until May, includes 171 Spring projects to make in 30 minutes or less and has some cute ideas for Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day and beyond.
These Beneficial Bugs below would be so cute in our garden, and fun to make too.
This issue will definitely remain in my art/craft book collection for a long time because of its many go-to ideas for kids of all ages.

WIN IT!
I have an extra copy of Easy Crafts for Kids for one lucky reader! (a $9.99 value)

  19. I love the "tube racer" and the "beneficial bugs". I know that both of my boys would definitely have fun making the tube racer for their Lego guys. I am interested in making the beneficial bugs for my herb garden! I wonder what they are made of...that would be so cute!
