Frugal Family Linky: April 16

Frugal Family link party for April 16 featuring ideas for gardening with kids and low cost crafts.

Welcome to this week's Frugal Family link party! We had so many wonderful posts linked up last week - every week I am so impressed by the creativity that I find here. Thank you for sharing!

I picked four posts to feature this week: two ideas to help you with your Spring garden, and two to inspire you to get crafty.

Garden Ideas

The Typical Mom shared 5 Cool Plants for Kids. If you're looking for fun growing activities with your kids this is all you need!

Hen Family gave us Natural Pest Remedies for the Garden. I love this post because I do not like to use chemicals in my garden with my kids and pets around. 

Crafty Creations

Create in the Chaos made an amazing Printable Dragon Marionette Puppet. This is so cool, you have to check it out!

Armchair Decorator shared this super simple but brilliant 2 Minute Framed Art project. It's a really frugal deco idea and I can't wait to try it with some of our old baby clothes!
