Whenever we are out shopping, I make a point to stop by the craft stores to check out their clearance section or holiday specials. I am always amazed at the deals they have on holiday crafts, even right before the actual holiday. The picture on the right is St. Patrick's Day picture frames I got from The Christmas Shoppe for 50 cents. They came with all the supplies to complete the craft--markers included. Kids love these little simple things.
The egg house is a craft we found last week at Michael's. It was marked half-off. (regularly $7.99) The egg house gave us entertainment throughout the whole day Saturday. We constructed it in pieces, and it is now a perfect centerpiece for our dining room table.
Just be on the lookout for crafting supplies at discount prices. Check the clearance sections! You can never have enough construction paper, pipe cleaners, puffballs, and crafting eyes. :)
