Crafts to Cure Cabin Fever

This morning I visited NBC’s studios in Philadelphia for a quick demo of some FUN Winter crafts using items most households already have on-hand — the perfect cure for cabin fever! Dawn and I had so much fun on The 10! Show, and we featured crafts for kids of all ages!!

In case you missed today’s show, here’s a clip of the segment with links to each project below.

Have fun crafting with the kiddos!!


  1. Valerie, where can I find canvas board? About how much does it cost?

  2. Love the clip! Great job as always! πŸ™‚

  3. Awesome crafts!

  4. Great job! I love the masking tape snowflake! I love all your fun ideas, I just took down our fall leave tree as it started to snow here (Iowa). I have a similar question to above. Where do you find contact paper? And how much does it cost?

    • I’m so happy to hear you’ve been enjoying our little bloggy blog! You can find contact paper at Target with the shelf liners. A large roll is around $5, and lasts for a long time. We always have some on-hand! Hope this helps!!

  5. That snowman looks super cute – maybe we will make him this season. It’s so exciting that non-bloggers can learn from your ideas too.

    • If I want to creep Mark out, I put the snowman vase in the bathroom. Seriously, it does make for a nice air freshener if you put pine branches in it. πŸ™‚

  6. Great ideas!I’ve seen the masking tape/paint idea before but not as a snowflake. Thanks.

  7. Loved the segment on The 10! Show.
    Great ideas that I am going to be doing with my lil guy!!!


  8. These are great ideas! I love them all! Exactly like you said, can be done with stuff at home. And great way to use a puff container! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Jackie! I love using things most households already have on-hand. It’s frugal and better for the environment!
