She’s working on it.

Time for this little poochie and all the pets of the world to milk this moment and let us bi-peds do a little more to show them just how much they’re appreciated. SMPCRAFT scoured the web to find DIY pet projects and crafts (cat, rabbit, and dog treats, too!) to honor our furry, feathered, scaled, and slithering loved ones.

KRAFTWERK, KIDS, and CARDBOARD ROBOTS

kraftwerk-kids

WATCH this Youtube video of the “BEST. KRAFTWERK. COVER. EVER.” via electronicsound.co.uk

This kraft projekt really does deserve respekt. Kudos to these kids and their musik teacher.

The school is Lemmchen Grundschule in Mainz and Lars Reimers is the music teacher who told his class that they would be working on a project for the next few weeks, which involves learning ‘Roboter’ by Kraftwerk, and making their very own cardboard robot costume which they’d wear while performing said cover version.

Brilliant.

It’s Halloween and I can’t wait to see all the costumes that countless creatives have whipped up. If you still haven’t come up with your costume, watch the video. You’ll be inspired.

Have fun everyone and Happy Halloween!

Whatever craft it may be…if it involves yarn, we know we love it, we know you love it, and we know others will too!”

11 DIY Outdoor Party Games

Got plans for 4th of July?

We heard this quite a bit this past week. And since we’re SMPCraft, as is often the case around a holiday, questions followed that mined us for solutions and ideas to decorate a deck, something to bring to a picnic in the park, give to a host throwing a barbecue, make for a beach party.

We offered some how-to tips and suggestions. But we also sent everyone off with a bigger idea: DIY OUTDOOR PARTY GAMES. Backyard, rooftop, park, beach games.

Several of these games can be put together in minutes with items most of us already have in our homes and enjoyed this weekend while others are a touch more involved. But remember, we have all summer to play!
