• Fairytale “Stained Glass” For Kids

    I’ve always had a thing for stained glass. It’s so pretty! I love the way that is casts colors into the room when sunshine passes through it. I thought I had seen some pretty impressive stained glass in my travels…  then I got a pet unicorn. Sprinkles is from the Cotton Candy Kingdom. If you are a regular here at Colors Are Magic, you are well acquainted with our adventures to this magical land.

  • Easter Crayons

      If you have read my Melt My Heart(s) post, then you are familiar with my childhood story of “the art cupboard” :) If not, let me brief you. Growing up my mother made my brother and I had an art cupboard. I loved that art cupboard. Seriously. When I opened it, I may as well of been opening the door to Narnia. It was always full of fun treasure– markers, crayons, construction paper, stickers, paints, and various other knick-knacks. Every so often while cleaning the house, my mother would tidy the art cupboard. She has her own cleaning service– so she our house was always ship shape. I loathed those days… they were literally the worst. She would get out a blank sheet of paper and test the markers. If they had dried out they would go into the trash can. I guess that was understandable since they no longer worked. It was the crayons that were the hardest to part with. She would throw out the little nubs of crayon that where floating around our giant box. Maybe it was because I was over dramatic… or maybe it was because I was an artistic child– with every coloring device thrown in the the garbage bin was also an opportunity to create some great. Whatever the reason… I was not a fan of “clean the art cupboard day”. Until one fine day my mother suggested that we make giant tie dye crayons out of all my broken pieces instead of throwing them away. Brilliant. I was totally onboard.

  • Crayon & Sandpaper Iron-Ons

    If there is one thing that Sprinkles and I like to do, it’s melt down crayons into all different kinds of arts and crafts. We just love how the colors melt and swirl together. Today we decided to try a different kind of melt down. Did you even know that it is possible to make homemade iron-ons with crayons and sandpaper? Well it is, and it’s amazing! You guys should totally try it.

  • Secret Spider Webs

    I can’t believe that Halloween is less than 2 weeks away. Seriously, where did the year go? Rhetorical.

    Anyhow, one of my favorite crafts to do with my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, is Secret Scribbles. They are super simple and totally fun to do. So, I decided to do a little Halloween version with her tonight. If you are looking around for a Halloween craft to do with your little pumpkins, this is a great option.

  • Salted Space Paintings

    This week, my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, decided to teach me a thing or two in the crafting department. It all started a few nights ago during our bedtime routine. We take turns reading or telling each other stories before bed every night. This particular night, Sprinkles, told me of a magical field in the Cotton Candy Kingdom where she would go as a young unicorn and watch as a rainbow meteor shower would happen. She told me that as you sat in the middle of this field, meteors would explode into a rainbow dust all around you and everything it touched would look like a rainbow starburst. I wanted to see it very badly. Unfortunately, these showers only happened in the springtime. Of course I was disappointed to hear that I had such a long wait ahead of me– but Sprinkles had a great idea. She found a way for me to get a bit of an idea of what the field would look like. You should totally try it for yourself! read more

  • Melting Crayon Easter Eggs

    Easter is nearly here! My pet unicorn and I are very excited for a little warm weather. New York has seriously been having some bipolar weather as of late. So, while the freezing winds were gusting the other day, we snuck off for some much needed relaxation and warm weather in the Cotton Candy Kingdom (where my unicorn grew up). You see, my unicorn’s parents are the the King and Queen of the Cotton Candy Kingdom, and it totally has it’s perks. While we were there, her mother was having rainbow high tea with the Easter Bunny. I just love the Easter Bunny. He’s so cuddly and smells like chocolates and jellybeans.
