 Fun Crafts to Do!!


Super Kids’ craft because it teaches them to sand, seal and trace so they will have the basics to go
further with later. After the prep-work is done, they simply paint, outline with marker (or paint) and
varnish. Shading and strokework can be introduced into this project.

Craft Tree carries a full line of paint brushes, acrylic paints, water colour paints, stamps & accessories, lamp works, ribbon, lace, yarn, DMS floss, silk and dried flowers.
