Now that the weather is getting colder, I know how hard it can be to find something to do with your children indoors. So this week on FAVORITE WEBSITE WEDNESDAY, I'm featuring Bloesem Kids, a fantastic site run by Irene Hoofs, a mom of two boys who lives in Kuala Lumpur.  Not only is the site visually stunning (I love the design and graphics) but it features some of the best kids craft projects I've ever seen.  There are currently 40 to choose from and they are perfect solution for the winter doldrums.  Here are some of my favorites.


The concept is simple - find materials with interesting textures and assemble them into a book for a baby or toddler.  And the result is fabulous.

This is such an inexpensive and fun project for your child to keep or to give as a gift.


This magnetic fishing game is not only easy to make but it's great for helping younger children with their fine motor development. 

In just a few simple steps,  your little one will have a one-of-a-kind game all his or her own. Such a great rainy day project for any kid!


This is the kind of craft I would have loved when I was younger!

Using plastic cups, rubber bands and a few pieces of paper, your little one can make a homemade rocket.  How fun is that?


By taking items you probably already have around your house....

You can create an eco-friendly and inexpensive fort that all of the kids in the neighborhood will want play with. 

After finishing this project, your little one will feel like true royalty with a castle of their very own!


Stuck inside?  Why not put on your own shadow puppet show?

In a few easy steps, you'll have the puppets and the screen ready to go.  Now why didn't I think of this?


Your child can create a gorgeous piece of art without any problem.  Just have him or her do some wet-on-wet watercolor painting....

Draw in some line and viola!  A gorgeous abstract piece that's more than fridge-worthy!
