Newsletters

Here are the archives of all the Kids Craft Weekly newsletters that have ever been published.  If you're browsing through them you will notice that the composition and style of content changes quite a bit over time.

When I look back to the earlier issues they seem quite bare in comparison to the more recent ones. One thing remains the same though – they're all filled with great craft ideas!

If you're after a specific craft you can search for it in the form below.
Otherwise, enjoy browsing through the newsletters.
