Brighten Lives Through Simple Crafts
In our last post, we talked about resolutions and how you could make OK Kids Korral a part of those by giving the gift of your time. There are so many ways to donate your time – helping decorate, preparing meals, cleaning – but did you know that you don’t have to stick to “chores” to help us out? Some of the most enjoyable activities for the children staying at the Korral are crafts. Not only do the Korral Kids love it, but it’s fun for the volunteers, too. One comment we hear a lot, however, is “I’d love to do that, but I’m not very crafty and I have no clue what to do.” If this is you, worry no more! You’ve inspired us to create a list so that now, you don’t need the idea! You only need to pick a project and follow the steps.
1) Make a fabric wrapped vase with just an empty vase, some colorful ribbon, and a pretty cloth napkin. It’s easy, inexpensive, and will make the perfect holder for flowers.
2) Make paper plate fish decorations to brighten up their rooms.
3) Oklahoma is known for its wind, so this colorful tin can wind chime is the perfect addition to our list.
4) This recycled mini chalkboard can supply hours of tic-tac-toe or hangman fun, once the inside dries.
5) Help them share a little nature with their friends and loved ones with these DIY fall leaf cards.
6) Everyone can see things a little more clearly with these handmade binoculars.
7) And this DIY lava lamp is borderline educational with its scientific nature!
These, and any other crafts in which the children engage, will not only brighten up their rooms, but the act of creating them and sharing that experience with you will lift their hearts. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re considering being a part of this. As always, we are forever grateful for what you do to help keep the OK Kids Korral project alive and wish you as many blessings as you bring to us.
