This month, I teamed up with Crafting It Forward to design this little DIY sock penguin craft. Each month, CIF creates a purchasable kid-friendly kit complete with all the supplies you need to make the new craft(s) for the month - and I helped to design the December kit! (FUN FACT: This little penguin requires ZERO sewing skills! *supa kid friendly*)
After the craft is completed, CIF includes a mailing label so that it can be sent off to a child with cancer or a senior center! When they reached out to me to collaborate, I was really excited to be able to contribute to a project with such a great cause. I really wanted to create a craft that could not only function as a decoration but also as a cute toy. With the holiday season upon us, I really personally aimed to create something that would no doubt put a smile on people's faces (no matter what their age)!
I really love how CIF not only is contributing to a great cause, but they are also promoting a fun monthly way to spend time with your kids. (You don't have to be a parent with kids to subscribe to CIF, but all of the crafts are designed to be simple enough for kids to make). There's no better way to spend the cooler fall / winter months than in the warmth of your homes 'crafting it forward!'
