Are you so tired of frantically browsing the internet at 10pm looking for something "crafty" to do with your preschoolers tomorrow...

frustrated girl

or maybe you're sick of spending your evenings tediously cutting out 25 elephant shapes for tomorrow's art lesson, instead of reading that new Colleen Hoover book that everyone was talking about...

I get you.... You just want your kids to have fun, get creative, and make something they're proud of... without all of the extra work of coming up with and preparing a new craft every week.

Spend more time doing things you love and less time prepping crafts

I'm here to tell you that You're not doing anything wrong - there's just a better way

You see, those "pinterest-worthy" crafts that use washi tape, glitter glue, and size 4 coffee filters were created by a PTO mom with one kid, TONS of time on her hand, and who loves dressing her kid to the nines (and probably her dog too).

You need go-to adorable crafts that only take a few minutes to prep and use three whole supplies (construction paper, scissors & a glue stick).

After you start using A Year of Crafts (& it's $30 worth of bonuses), you'll:

  • Have simple crafts, ready to go, so you're no longer browsing the web & clenching your jaw figuring out what art to make on Thursday.
  • Finally, spend less time prepping crafts so you can catch up on your Netflix backlog
  • Pat yourself on the back for having crafts for every holiday, for the rest of the year, ready to go.
  • Have less of a mess at craft time because you're kiddos are only working with construction paper and glue sticks
  • Have children that ask you over and over again if they can do art today - because these crafts are just so cute and so fun

Tell me the Secrets. Why Do Templates Make Crafting Easier?...

1. You're going to be printing PDFs (Instead of using a Regular Craft Book)

Why? Because you can't rip a template out of a craft book and use it over and over again.

But if your kid loves the shark on page 44, you can print it over and over again to make Daddy Shark, Mommy Shark and Baby Shark.

2. Printing the Template means no more tracing

When you print the craft template onto an 8 x 10 sheet of paper, you can use it to quickly prep your craft, that means ...


2. Staple the template (This is the golden secret right here)

animated red Stapler

Staple the template to 8-10 pieces of construction paper and cut out 8-10 shapes at a time (Perfect for anyone working with a bunch of kiddos, like Daycare Workers & Teachers)

All you need is a printer and a stapler.

Questions that hesitant (and smart) people ask about these templates?

But I’m sooooo a paper-person. I don’t like digital.

Welcome to the club. I'd so rather hold a pretty binder full of templates in my hand than scroll through a PDF. But the truth is, then I would have a HUGE bunch of papers, and I'd have to take them out of the binder to photocopy them, and I'd either destroy the original or lose it because I forgot to put it back.

With the PDF, you just print as many copies as you want. And you never mess up the original. It's always one click away. Also, this book was designed for the templates to be printed and stapled to construction all about it in the section above.

Ok, It's digital, how does it work?

As soon as you complete your order, you will see a "download now" section and an email will be sent to you with a download link - Click on either one. The eBook is actually a large ZIP file. You will want to save the Zip file to your computer, right-click and select, "Extract All" (Windows) or double-click (Mac). This will create a new file on your computer in which you can open. If you need to get the files onto your mobile device, add the file to iCloud or Dropbox, or simply email it to yourself. If you need extra help downloading the file, read this Download Help Page.

What if I don't have a Printer?

Ok, that stinks, but I do have some answers: 1. You can take the PDFs to a local print shop (like Staples or Office Max) and they can print it for you 2. This sounds crazy but it works.. You can open the PDF on your computer, browse to the template you want, and then tape a piece of paper to your monitor. Then, you can TRACE the template onto paper. Now you can staple it to the construction paper and cut out lots of shapes at once.

But I'm not a Crafty Person...

The great thing about craft templates is that the craft comes out looking the same every time. Just print it, and cut out the shapes. The included step-by-step instructions will show you how to make the craft look great.

How Many Supplies Do I need?

Not many...Every craft in the book is made out of construction paper. So you'll need paper, a glue stick, scissors, and sometimes markers to draw on details (like a face). There are a few crafts that use cotton balls or pipe cleaners, but those extras are always optional. After you purchase, check out the complete supply list on page 8 in the introduction.

How do I get the Bonuses?

Great news...The bonuses are tucked right in with everything else. When you extract the ZIP file, you will get a folder called "A Year of Crafts". Inside that folder is another folder called "Bonuses". That's where you'll find all of the goodies.

How Many Copies Can I Make?

As many as you need! These pages are designed to be used again and again. Just buy it once and use it for years to come!

Each license (purchase) is valid for one teacher, one librarian, or one family. These files are for non-commercial use only and may not be distributed for free or for any form of compensation.

Please email if you have any questions.  

Is this a Subscription Product? Do I have to pay each year or will I get charged automatically next year?

NO. You pay one time and you will be able to download a ZIP file that contains every PDF included in this eBook. Those files are yours to keep forever. You will never be charged again.

Um.. There's something else I need to know...

No problem! If you have any other questions please email me at BEFORE you purchase so that we can make sure this product is right for you.
