Crafts: Make It!
  • Make It! Farm Treat Pouch Make It! Farm Treat Pouch

    My love of animals enhances every aspect of my life. As a parent, my reference for animals plays a big part in how I choose to raise my kids. Luckily, they are just as intensely in love with animals as I am. Bribes like, “If you do all your homework this week without fuss you can go to the animal shelter and read to the bunnies,” actually work in my house. We foster animals in our home, strategize ways to raise money for animal charities and are forever trying to spread the word about how animals need us to be kinder. I want my children to feel they have a voice and that their voice has impact. It’s empowering for children to feel as though they can protect as well as be protected. Animals provide a great opportunity for this type of engagement.

  • Make It! Piggy Cupcakes Make It! Piggy Cupcakes

    Don’t eat the pigs! -- unless your eating these adorable piggy cupcakes made by our friend and craft extraordinaire, Jodi Levine. Real pigs are one of the most intelligent animals on the planet. They are incredibly sensitive and emotionally aware of everything and everyone around them. They care for one another, keep warm in groups, snuggle up nose to nose to show their love and friendliness, and use their craftiness to build nests and find food in all the hidden places. While eating these piggy cupcakes won’t make you intelligent like the pig, reading Jodi’s new book, Candy Aisle Crafts will make you as crafty!

  • MAKE IT! Barnyard Memory Game MAKE IT! Barnyard Memory Game

    Farm Sanctuary is one of our favorite organizations in the country. The not-for-profit farm is home to hundreds of rescued animals who are protected and cared for by good farmers and good people. The sanctuary provides the rescued animals with everything they need to live happy and comfortable lives; from fields of grass for the grazing cows, to clean ponds for the duck and geese, mud puddles, a shining sun, blue sky and of course, other barnyard friends! We've created a Barnyard Memory Game for Farm Sanctuary to give to their supporters as a way of bringing the sanctuary (including their adopted friend!) into their homes.

  • MAKE IT! Barnyard Placemat MAKE IT! Barnyard Placemat

    Often our only experience of green pastures, red barns and majestic animals is on the packaging of grocery store products. Might I recommend a little trip to a farm sanctuary instead? I challenge anyone not to have their spirits lifted during one of these visits. And if you've never been licked by a cow, it’s imperative that you get there quickly. On top of how much you’ll benefit from the experience of visiting a farm sanctuary, you’ll leave with a better understanding of what makes each individual animal happy. What are their names? What do they like to eat? Where do they like to hang out? Who do they like to hang out with?

  • 12 Easy Toys To Donate To Your Local Shelter 12 Easy Toys To Donate To Your Local Shelter

    Getting your kids to give back can be fun and easy, especially when they know they're providing toys and entertainment for adorable dogs and cats in the local animal shelter. While awaiting adoption, it's important for shelter animals to stay active - both physically and mentally - and get as much environmental enrichment as possible. That's where pet toys come in handy. Throughout the year, animal shelters are in need of donations in order to provide all of the items that their animals need to stay happy and healthy while under their care. You and your kids can make a difference by crafting some toys to drop off at the shelter as gifts for the animals.
