Cork Coasters – Crafting with kids

I had some fun over the weekend and invited my “Muses” over to play.

By Muses I mean the imagination-station team – consisting of my daughter and a few of her friends.

I LOVE seeing what kids come up with when creating.  My mind is so pigeon-holed by Pinterest perfection that I don’t often branch out and come up with something entirely original, but ask an 11 year old to paint cork coasters and watch what they come up with!

I picked up a few supplies from the dollar store:

and set up a “feel-free-to-spill zone” in my garage,

and let the animals loose.

This craft was inexpensive and easy to set up, and the kids and I laughed and goofed around while working.  The girls were at it for two hours without even noticing the time, and I think they had fun.

We had Jaden’s beautiful geometric print cork coasters:

and then Georgia’s creations:

which included a galaxy coaster, a plaid one, a watermelon version and a “love it!” emoji coaster.

See what I mean about imagination?!  Have you ever come across a galaxy coaster anywhere before?

Brilliant!

We had rainbows and beach balls, solid colours and fruit;

The girls came up with so many different options – it was a lot of fun (for me anyways).

As an added bonus, once the mess was shovelled up, I got to sit out and enjoy using some of our cork coasters!

If you’re looking for a fun craft to make with your kids – of any age – cork coasters is a great bet.

Have a great one!
