Thanksgiving At My House

by Betty Bose Editor FreeKidsCrafts.com Thanksgiving is a time for families, food and fond memories of all the blessings we enjoy every day. I must start this article confessing that I am not the world's best cook. Thanksgiving, however, is one of the easier meals to me. Take one big old turkey, stuff it, make some yummy potatoes, and one or two veggies and sit back and enjoy...that is  unless you are Italian. Italians think…

Halloween in the Dark Ages

Halloween in Australia

Getting a Grip on the Right Glue

by Betty BoseEditor, FreeKidsCrafts.comPaper, scissors, crayons and glue are the basic building blocks of  most craft projects for young children. The success or failure of a craft project can often be traced back to the glue you select for the job. In the old days schools only used a glue that came in a bottle with a rubber stopper with a slit where the glue was squeezed on the page. Today there are many different types of glue and…
