Letter from our founder
When my daughter came home beaming with pride from a craft kit she assembled at school, I thought that the perfect activity had fallen into my lap.
I began searching for crafts for kids online and in local craft stores and was quickly overwhelmed by the range of craft kits, material qualities, and price ranges, not to mention the time and money I was spending driving, selecting, and purchasing crafts each week. I knew that there had to be a better way —
So I created Carefree Crafts for all those busy parents out there who want a quick and easy way to buy crafts for their kids year-round. I hope you and your children have as much fun with these crafts as our family has.
Take care and happy crafting!

One of my new favorite holidays is coming up in about ~2 weeks - Mother's Day! In honor of Mother's Day, we are giving away our Mother's Day Craft Kit. This craft kit is great for kids ages 3-7.
I love planting potted flowers in the spring - while I can't say they usually survive the entire summer, I do like to look at them! Since we don't have spring weather here yet (it is 37 degrees F right now), I used this Make Your Own Egg Carton Spring Tulips craft kit from Target to bring some fun spring colors inside!
We are giving away this adorable Hello Kitty Purse craft. I would say this is a great craft for kids ages 8+. It's also a great craft for adults who want to hand-make a Hello Kitty craft for your child, grandchild, or niece. My 5-year old daughter loves the soft feel of the purse - it's made of really soft felt. It also has an adjustable strap and velcro closure so your child can take it anywhere.
Here's a round-up of some of my favorite Easter craft ideas for kids! Some of these crafts will be easy for preschool kids, and some crafts will better for older kids who are learning to sew. These all are great craft ideas that are absolutely CUTE, adorable, and a fun way to celebrate Easter.
Here is an Easter wreath craft that is quick, easy, and fun to work on with your kids. All you need are some foam egg shapes, decorative stickers, tacky glue, and ribbon! I bought pre-cut foam eggs and foam stickers from JoAnn, but you could also cut out your own eggs with foam sheets or even cardstock. This craft took about 30 minutes.
Since I’m hosting Easter at my house this year, I thought Easter bowling would be a great indoor activity for the kids. We made these cute Easter bowling pins with plastic eggs that were already decorated, toilet paper rolls, and cardstock.
