Keep kids crafting … and we’ve got hampers to give away!

Rust-Oleum has put together 10 crafty creations for your kids to make in their enjoyable eBook, Crazy Cool Kid’s Crafting.

Each idea uses commonly found items at home – illustrating how to easily reuse and repurpose them with spray paint. From zombie pet rocks to stationery caddies and tin can lights – each project from yesteryear has how to step by step instructions. Although simple in their execution – some ideas are more advanced and will require adult input or at least some supervision. But the main objective is clear … having loads of fun while they can express themselves through art.
