By a crafty mama , Tried & True offers up plenty of tutorials for making crafty things. Some of it you can do with your kids, and some of it you can make for your kids.

KidsActivitiesBlog.com has lots of great fun things to do with kids, some crafty, others more activity-like (think magic tricks, games, play ideas).
