sparkle craft: four crafts that are way more fun than screens!

Screen-free days are easy with a few Sparkle crafts. I've rounded up some crafts that take awhile to make and lead to lots of fun afterwards. Each craft has been chosen for different unique interests. Whether you have an artist, a crafter, a scientist, or a tinker, we have something for every kid. If you try one of these crafts, please share with us on the Sparkle Instagram page or on Facebook — after screen-free time is over, of course!
