Charm Stamped SoapSchool is almost over, which means that the kids will be home for much longer periods of time. This can get stressful, unless you think of a brilliant idea (or AllFreeKidsCrafts does)…

Relax with the kids at home by designating it spa day. I know that it’s rare to see “relax” and “kids” in the same sentence, but it’s there, and it’s real. While it might be hard to get away and have a true spa day, involve the kids, and it’ll be just as fun and relaxing. Plus, if you teach them to enjoy the art of relaxation in the process, you’re that much better off.

The mini Madonnas will get a kick out of applying face masks, making their own body scrubs, and softening up their lips with homemade products. Don’t be afraid to involve the boys (young and old); they’ll enjoy a day of crafting and relaxing just as much!

…And if you have a birthday coming up, slip this list of relaxing crafts to your kids and kindly suggest that they would make a nice present.
