DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Crafts for Girls!

Cute crafts that are perfect for a girls pajama or birthday party.  I'd originally steered away from a "just for girls" section as it's a tad stereotypical.  I'm sure a lot of boys would like the tote bags, recipe cards, etc -- just like my girls love playing "pirates" and soccer!  But I had a lot of requests for a place desperate moms could come to quickly during rowdy sleep over parties, so I gave in.

Please don't roast me for insinuating that girls do nothing but make jewelry and play with unicorns.  I know there's more to a girl's life than that *smile*
