Cupcake Liner Flowers + Tin Can Vase

We recently worked on another fun project for DIY Network! The assignment was to come up with fun, crafty ideas to keep kids busy on rainy days! With the volume of freelance projects we are working on these days, I asked Molly from our team to take the lead on this one and she did an amazing job. We are sharing 3 project tutorials for girls and 2 for boys! Find all of our Rainy Day Crafts for Kids here on DIY Network or click photos below for individual project instructions.

    These are such great ideas! We are going on day 4 at home (after getting a ton of snow) and creative ideas for entertaining the kids were much needed! The marshmallow catapult is so fun – and I love the airplane idea! Thank you!!
