School’s Out! 10 Ideas to Get the Kids Creating With YouMay 30, 2023
School is officially out for summer here in Arizona!
When Jasmine got home from school on Wednesday after her last final, she told me, "I'm off to the yarn store so I can start a new project!"
Jasmine's first love for creating is crochet. She usually has at least one project on the go, if not 5 or 6.
Sound familiar for you and your embroidery machine? 😍
This got me thinking...
What might the kids in your life like to create - with you and your embroidery machine???
We've got 10 ideas to get your kids creating with you during the summer holidays.
Rainy day? Let's get stitching!
Too hot outside? Let's get stitching!
I'm so bored (bet you never heard that from a kid in your house!!!) Let's get stitching!
#1: Flower wall art using Petal Power Flower Garden.
Single hoopings - no sewing required!
Stitch up 6 different flowers and mount them on a simple wooden frame (or add a quick binding!).

#2: Somewhere to put that phone using the Call Me Chic Phone Organizer.
With 4 different flap designs to choose from, this one is a favorite.
And making it will get the kids off their phones (at least for a little while!).

#3: It's never too early to start stitching something up for Christmas!
With 6 small stockings and 6 large stockings to choose from, there are plenty of options to keep the kids occupied!

With so many projects to choose from, this one will keep the kids busy for sure!

#7: Pop it in a Happy Popup!

#8: Be still my heart with Heart to Heart.
What could be more perfect than gorgeous machine embroidery applique hearts on matching t-shirts for a super fun summer family reunion?
