St. Patrick’s Day is a great reason to get your kids
crafting. It is a fun and colorful holiday where several different projects can
be created. One simple and fun project to make is these Kiss Me Blocks. Kindra
Boroff designed these blocks, and boy aren’t they cute. To make these blocks
Kindra used Mod Podge and Dimensional Magic. This would make a great classroom
project, or afterschool craft. Feel free to change the copy on these blocks.
You can include names or initials, or leave them plain with just colorful
paper. This is a project perfect for beginners and it will only take at most
and hour and a half to complete. Below you will find a full list of supplies
and instructions for these blocks. Happy crafting!
