I received a free copy of Smart School House Crafts for Kids for the purpose of this review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Fabulous blogger Kelly Dixon has written her first book!  She blogs over at Smart School House and has some of the cutest, most colorful and unique ideas ever! She recently released her first book, Smart School House Crafts for Kids.  There are tons of year-round projects for holidays and parties with your kids.  When the “I’m bored’s” hit, this is the book you want to have on hand!

If your dough is too dry or sticky, the book has tips for fixing the mixture.  We mixed ours according to the recipe and it was perfect!
