I just realized we have not been updating this blog since late last year. That is what Motherhood does to me. I hardly have time to craft with my kids but as the little one will be turning TWO next month, I’m sure we’ll be updating frequently as he is at the best age to be crafting with his little fingers 😀

For today, I’ll just be sharing a greeting card my elder boy did in school for the upcoming Hari Raya festival. Hari Raya AidilFitri is an important celebration by Muslims. 

DIY Hari Raya Card for kids

He made a ‘ketupat’ using crepe paper on the front of his card.
