Anyone want to share their favorite craft websites/blogs, preferrably with pre-schoolers in mind. Ds loves him some crafts, but he is burdened with the most craft-challenged an unorganized mother. I went to A.C. Moore last night and bought a few $1 Halloween kits, which is he psyched about, but I'd like to be able to do something without a Made in China kit. I'm also really interested in environmentally-friendly crafts. I'd love any guidance.

My all time favorite:

They have a section for "toddler" crafts

Hi--I recently started an artsy blog for primarily preschool aged kids. I think you will find lots of fun ideas.
