Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked – Crafts and Pinterest Contest!

by MyChicagoKids on March 19, 2012

Alvin and the Chipmunks: ChipwreckedEver since I joined Pinterest, I’ve started making more crafts with my kids. Somehow, seeing bright visuals of how my crafts may (or may not) turn out is giving me the courage to craft more (I’m kind of craft challenged).

So when I saw these fun crafts, in honor of the DVD Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked being released on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download on March 27 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I thought I’d step up my game and try a few of these crafts with my boys.

See below how you can win a copy of the Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download Combo Pack.

Paper Photo Frames

Using pictures from our last vacation, I’m going to have my boys make homemade picture frames as Father’s Day gifts this year. Instead of drawing a house, I’ll have them draw something related to our vacation (the shape of Florida, the beach, a canoe, etc). This craft looks like something I can easily manage. Using pictures from the past year, I think I’ll make one myself for my son’s next birthday.


Homemade Play Dough

But now it’s really time for me to get rid of all of the hard play-doh and make homemade play dough with my boys. It seems all I need is salt, water, flour and food dye (who knew it was so easy).



Homemade Soap

I’ll be using Kaboose‘s easy homemade soap recipe.
