Out of office: providing sparks for my creative child

I am so glad I have at least one crafty child. I can nearly always rope Kieran into a craft project! For his first communion, we painstakingly made cross necklaces for all of his fellow first communicants and the teachers (not a simple process).

We had fun with this project the other day--making bookmarks from a template provided on this FedEx Office blog, Out of Office. It provides ideas for projects, crafts, event planning, and ways to create personalized holiday gifts. It even includes some business ideas, such as how to spice up presentations.

With the amount of books we have in our house (many of which we are reading at the same time), we can always use more bookmarks. Three-year-old Nick saw the leftover stickers and paper scraps and decided to make his own bookmark, which he very proudly placed in a Wizard of Oz pop-up book we were reading this evening.

I'd like to try this one out too--since a friend gave us a bag of authentic Mardi Gras beads--and they tend to get tossed around the house.

Any way to engage Kieran's creative personality, and I'm there! I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of FedEx Office and received the items necessary to facilitate my review. In addition, Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
