This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have been stuck at home with my 4 kids weeks, and thankfully from the beginning we have been using our Cricut Joy machine to keep the kids engaged (and myself sane). I love using the Cricut Joy because it’s a quick and easy, I can personalize anything in 15 minutes or less!
I still am obsessed with the Cricut Explore Air 2, but this Cricut Joy is a fast way to make mat-free projects. It’s compact and portable! The perfect combination when making projects with the kids.
Plus, the Cricut Joy cleans up effortlessly – no craft room required! You probably saw my Instagram stories in the Michael’s store beforehand, when I was gushing about Cricut Joy tote bag. You can see it below – the tote bag makes it extremely easy to pack and protect the machine when it’s not in use. It fits the cords and machine, so they are always together!
Between reading mysteries, creating art, playing new sports, and learning how to play video games – my kids are also crafting with the Cricut Joy and me!
Here are 3 little things you can make with the Cricut Joy are:
- Whimsical Bookmarks: Love classic books? Cricut has a bookmark for that! I love these Secret Garden bookmarks for my daughter and I. We used the Cricut Joy Adhesive-Backed Deluxe Paper and the Cardstock Sampler to create these bookmarks.
- Personalized Birthday Cards: I am terrible at keeping track of extended families birthdays – I aspire to be just like my Aunt Lorraine who sends everyone cards that arrives before the day of the birthday. But for now, we have been creating personalized birthday cards for loved ones. And I don’t even need to create one from scratch – Cricut Access has so many designs to choose from and make.
- Constellation Project: This is the ideal fine motor and science project for kids 4-7 years old, my children loved this activity! There are different constellations available – the Little Dipper and Big Dipper, Leo, and Orion. The only extra supplies you need for this Cricut Joy project is string or yarn to weave through the star holes.
