Review - Disney FamilyFun Magazine Offers Plenty of Easy Crafts for Kids


Disney FamilyFun MagazineIt is no secret that I absolutely adore Disney FamilyFun magazine!  I have posted several of their family-friendly selections here on my blog and I wholeheartedly believe that there is no better publication on the market for parents and children.  I am amazed with every magazine at the creative crafts and activities showcased inside.

So, when FamilyFun asked me if I wanted to review their "Easy Crafts for Kids" Special Edition Magazine, how could I say no?  Keep reading to learn more about the issue that's chocked full of over 170 wonderful spring projects!

I reviewed the Easy Crafts for Kids Special Edition Magazine from Disney FamilyFun, which retails for $9.99 and is on sale through the end of May 2011.

One of the things I really appreciated about this special edition issue and every issue of Disney FamilyFun Magazine, is how they constantly find ingenious ways to recycle and reuse items destined for the trash.  For instance, just look at the Stacked Skyscraper project, made from several old cardboard boxes.  If you're low on cash this Mother's Day, but high on creativity, then you can't miss with the Garden of Weavin' project.  These beautiful flowers were made using only yarn and paper plates.

If you are in need of an instant "go-to" resource for when your children are bored or restless, or if you'd like an immediate way to turn a rainy afternoon into a wonderful time, then I highly recommend Disney FamilyFun Magazine.  There are so many unique and well-designed projects for every member of your family inside every single issue, that your children will be crying for more!

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
