Kids Kreate


This fun and easy craft is perfect for a circus theme. You could also use it with a Noah's Ark or creation theme as well. Make them as a group and sell them at a craft fair too.

Animal Cracker Pins


Box of Animal Crackers (not iced)

clear nail polish or varnish

flat-backed small gold pins

craft glue or a glue gun. Do NOT use Elmer's glue. It will not hold.



Have your child choose an animal cracker they like. Polish both sides with clear nail polish or varnish (BE SURE TO DO THIS OUTSIDE OR IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA!). Once completely dry, glue one pin to the back; again let dry completely. That's all there is to it. A fast, fun and cute lapel pin for your kids to wear. Make sure that children do not put these in their mouths.
