Who could use some more easy craft ideas for kids? I think we all could right now! Well, we have a darling rainbow unicorn craft for you today that your kiddos are going to go bonkers for. I mean who doesn’t love unicorns and rainbows? This mama sure does and so does my craft lovin’ little lady.

Being that we’re homebound for the near feature, I can definitely use all the new craft ideas I can get! My daughter is an absolute ball of energy and she’s been going bonkers being cooped up inside. And that is why, my dear friends, I’ve been working overtime looking for fun new craft ideas for her.

If I can keep her busy for even just one hour, that’s another hour I have to work, drink a cup of coffee, shower…You know, the good stuff. Haha! I’ll take any small wins right now my friends! I know I’m not the only stressed out mama who feels that way…
