Top 10 Crafts of 2016

Top 10 Crafts of 2016 | Homan at Home

It’s that time of year! Time to look back and see what our readers loved this year. It’s always fun to see what posts took off. This year, I noticed a definite trend towards kids’ crafts performing well, which tells me there must be more than a few moms and dads checking out this blog. We also had several printable crafts do very well, which is a new thing we tried this year. 

That said, we are looking for input on what sort of crafts and activities you folks would like to see this year. If you wouldn’t mind, I’ve created a short (2 minute!) survey that would help me know what it is you would like to see in 2017. Click on the link below to take it, and all I’ll be grateful to you forever!

Awesome 2017 Survey!

And now from the future to the past. Our most popular posts in 2016 were headed by:

1. Best Homemade Playdough

This is the second best performing post on the entire blog (only Apple Crisp has it beat!). This playdough is easy to make, has the perfect consistency, and is a kid-approved favorite!

2. Edible Finger Paint

A friend and I dreamed up this finger paint recipe when we decided to have our two little boys make some Valentine’s art. This is the perfect recipe: it’s super easy, with bright, vibrant colors. It also dries nicely, so you can keep your kid’s artwork!

3. Oatmeal and Olive Oil Bath Truffles

This craft was something I threw together one evening when I wanted to have a nice relaxing bath. It came out about 10 times better than I was expecting. Apparently, you folks found it relaxing too, judging by how popular this one is!
