    The first step to creating these paper cup flowers from How Wee Learn is to swirl paint around the inside of the cup with the aid of a small rock. After that you just cut and unfold the "petals."

    Happy Hooligans has figured out a way to use those old dried up markers! Just fill some small cups with water and place the marker face down into the water. Leave them for a full week before you get to painting!

    This craft from Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds is so much easier for kids than trying to string beads! Cut straws and some pieces of yarn are all you need. This is a great way to fine tune those fine motor skills.

    Little Page Turners's directions are to drip some food coloring onto card stock and then throw on the raincoats and take the card stock out into the rain to create a one of a kind piece of art.
