Kid Friendly Holiday Craft by Banks Craft Co ☃️

Need a cute, kiddo friendly craft to keep your littles occupied and in the holiday spirit?  Here’s are a few awesome craft ideas brought to you by Banks Craft Co! 

Hand/footprint Wreath Supplies:

Square canvas
2 different green acrylic paint colors
Red acrylic paint
Letter stickers or marker to write on the canvas
Ribbon

STEPS:

Draw a circle with pencil. You can use a bowl of any kind to get that perfect circle.

Start handprints with one color green. Going around the circle but leaving enough room for the other color green (see image).

Next start the other color green. You can do all hands or all feet or a combo of both. Since we did 2 kids we did the younger ones feet & the older kid hands.

Add red paint circles for the “berries”. You can use a finger or pencil end.

Once dry you can add your stencil letters.

Using a hot glue gun, glue the ribbon to the canvas and enjoy!

“Let it snow” Snowman supplies:

Any size canvas
Any color finger paint
White, black and orange acrylic paint
Stencil letters

STEPS:
Let the kids finger paint the background!

Once dry apply white paint to the bottom of your kiddos foot and make footprints.

Add the snowman details with a small paint brush.

Add stencil letters.


Reindeer and/or Christmas Tree supplies:

Any size canvas depending on if you want to do both or just one design

Green, red, brown, yellow, black acrylic paint

Letter stickers

STEPS:
Using footprints arrange the desired design on the canvas.

Once dry add the details to the design you choose.

Apply stickers.

MOMnationAZ ROCKS the World kickoff at the Tempe Festival of the Arts 🎨

MOMnationAZ participated in the super popular Tempe Festival of the Arts this past weekend and hundreds of kids flooded the booth to join in the two free art projects provided by awesome volunteers from our awesome local MOMs group

We met thousands of visitors over the weekend and enjoyed booth after booth of local art, live musicians, food trucks and, of course, the fun and interactive booths in the Kids Block.

MOMnationAZ offered free nature crafts and rock painting to kids of all ages along with a goodie bag chock full of freebies, trinkets and toys for the kiddos.

Rock paint artists were free to take their rock home to enjoy forever or were invited to join us at MOMnationAZ Rocks the World, a Facebook group following the travels of our painted rocks.

 

The instructions on the back of each rock read, “Post a pic on MOMnationAZ Rocks the World Facebook page and re-hide”.  If you see one of our rocks during your travels throughout the Valley, take a pic and post it to MOMnationAZ Rocks then re-hide.  Lets see how far these colorful rocks travel!

 

Join us at MOMnationAZ Rocks the World!  Just paint a rock, add the tag on the back, post a pic and hide it!

MOMnationAZ.com presents PROM2018: A Prom for Parents

On Saturday, August 18, from 6pm to 11pm, 100 couples and probably even a few singles going stag, will gather at the historic Crowne Plaza in Chandler to dance the night away at this Prom for Parents. ‘As parents we don’t have many opportunities to get together and party the night away old school style’ as Katie Halle Lambert, the founder of MOMnation describes.

East Valley mom of four, Jessica Nelson, not only attended PROM2017 last year she also helped with decorations and the evening’s agenda. ‘I really enjoy the social opportunities that MOMnation offers but I also love diving in and helping with all the awesome events the group organizes throughout the year.’

And, just like the high school prom, some moms that have attended the event in the past say their emotions and confidence can be a rollercoaster ride.

Jeni Cohen, a Mesa Mom of five, admits ‘I was a little shy and hesitant about meeting new people before I joined this group over three years ago and now I can’t imagine life without them. The variety of events and opportunities that group provides help Moms of all personality types find real friends that they click with.’

Mesa business owner Emilie Nikolich Mom of two states, ‘My life is busy.  MOMnation gives me an opportunity to plug in when I can on a social and professional level and I never feel like I have missed a thing.’

All agree that the annual Prom for Parents is an amazing way to recharge their social batteries and meet new friends.

What’s to expect at this Prom for Parents? MOMnation’s founder, Katie Halle Lambert says, ‘The ticket price includes a great variety of yummy appetizers served throughout the night, an entry into the drawing for some awesome prizes (someone won an iPad last year) and entertainment emceed by a pro DJ. And, of course, we’ll crown Prom King and Queen.’

This is the second annual Prom for Parents that the Phoenix moms group has organized and last year, the first, was sold out. Each year is a different theme. The PROM2017 theme was the 80’s and this year it’s masquerade ball. The upcoming event is open to the public and is priced at $28 which includes appetizers. Crowne Plaza is offering discounts on rooms for Prom attendees. For more information, visit the Eventbrite page.

MOMnation is a Phoenix, AZ area based social group exclusively for MOMs that coordinates social gatherings, business opportunities and local resources for its members.  Follow @momnationAZ on Instagram.
