Today I’m introducing a new series on Kerri Creates called “Craft Time with Karis.” So many of my crafting inspirations have to do with my kids, so I thought it would be fun to bring my daughter in as my little crafting sidekick! She’s always up for an art project and I love providing creative opportunities for her.
“Craft Time With Karis” debuts with a simple and inexpensive Valentine Craft that we put together with a few things we already had around our house…cookie cutters, paint, and paper bags. Enjoy this little video tutorial we created, and subscribe to our youtube channel for up and coming “Craft Time With Karis” videos. #CommissionsEarned

Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned Nerf Battle? My 10 year old son was who I had in mind when I added Nerf Wars and Target Practice to our Advent activities this year. But let’s be honest…this is fun for any age…even the grown ups!
We started our evening by creating these spinning targets, which were a big “hit!” I prepared everything ahead of time by cutting circles out of empty food boxes and setting out markers, tape, two circles per person, large craft sticks, straws cut to size, pennies to weigh the spinners down at the bottom, a piece of string, and a couple of push pins. Then we sat down at our coffee table to create. Check out my tutorial to see how we made the spinners.
Next we each selected our Nerf Gun, grabbed a couple of soft bullets and had target practice. We also stacked up some red cup pyramids to shoot down and then ended our evening with a boys vs. girls living room Nerf Battle, using a jump rope to divide the room in half. The last one standing was the winner. Want to know who the epic champion of the night was? You guessed it…little sister for the win! #CommissionsEarned
