The Best Crafts for Kids of 2016

Welcome back to Unit Study Fridays! Each week I get together with some great bloggers to bring unit study materials and resources based on the week’s theme. This week our theme is crafts for kids and I’m super excited to share my most popular kids crafts of 2016 with you! Don’t forget to scroll down after this post for more kid’s craft unit study resources.
I’m always surprised to see which posts are popular with my readers because blogging is an ever evolving thing. Sometimes I make crafts with my kids that they love, but my readers just aren’t as interested once its up here on my site. Other times crafts that I feel may look too simple or too complex really resonate with parents.
I chose these crafts from my website based on how my readers responded. I love getting comments about how excited people are to try something I’ve posted! Other times I see a post’s popularity through the amount of times it’s been shared on social media. And now I can’t wait to share the best of 2016 with you!
