Get Your Craft Going!

Summer means water, sun, and sometimes, boredom. Don’t let b-o-r-e-d-o-m get to your campers or summer schoolers – have fun with crafts from Nasco’s Arts & Crafts catalog!

Busy hands need busy crafts. Make jewelry and beaded sculptures with our Beautiful Beaded Sculpture Kit (9729230) with enough materials to make 12 beaded sculptures. Or how about making necklaces and earrings out of our Mini Apothecary Bottle Jewelry Kit (9731778)? Just remove the cork from the bottle, fill with the treasures of your choice, screw the screw eye finding into the cord, and replace cork. We also have a Rhinestone Pin Kit (9729232) with enough materials to make 48 sparkling pins.

In the same theme is Nasco’s Dreamcatchers Group Pack (9720654). Includes enough materials for 24 projects! Paper crafts are always great time catchers. We offer a Roylco® Butterfly Ornaments Craft Kit (9734864 for a set of 72) or a Checky Butterfly Counted Cross Stitch Kit (WA27822) for the butterfly in you. How about decorating 3-D ornaments?
