I tried to find craft projects that are a little more intriguing than typical handprint crafts and printable coupon books. (Although I did find one craft that is a combination of both those ideas! haha)

13. Screwdriver Coat Rack
Scour the local thrift store for a selection of screwdrivers for the kids to paint. Then all you need is a couple of L brackets and a table leg!

I couldn’t find the original source for this DIY, but the photos here are pretty self-explanatory. All you need is a small wood plaque, a moose toy (or other antlered creature) and some paints!
