Succulents and cacti are all the rage right now, so try these cute toothpick crafts with children. A cool cactus, no water is required!
skills Required: beginner. Adults the craft, and even children can do. I recommend children 8+, try this craft, because of the toothpick. If you want to do it with small children, make sure it’s monitored.
Hello! It’s Megan of homemade ginger again with another fun tutorial. We’ve been tinkering with it a lot of fun summer around here lately, like this slime recipe and the ice cream stick photo frame. I’ve gone, another one for you, and this time it’s a cactus craft. I think it’s too sweet!
succulents and cacti are all the rage, why not let the kids make some require no maintenance? These would look adorable sitting on a shelf in a game room, and they are so addictive!
