Want to get lost in some links for a while? The Long Thread has links to 50 crafts, recipes and projects to keep kids busy. Truthfully, none of these are really new to most mamas and the majority seem to be done by mamas themselves or are really not very realistic for kids (I loved the sounds of the newspaper beads until I read the steps involving boiling water, sanding and drilling each little bead after… not so much a kid craft!). Still, it will remind you of all the possibilities on lazy days. :) My personal favorites are the footprint stepping stones, kid-made kaleidoscopes and braided scrap necklaces.
