Contest: Parents’ Magazine Search for Craftiest Mom

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Calling all DIY moms*! Our friends at Parents magazine want to celebrate your creative know-how with their Craftiest Mom Contest

Are you the type to build a small village from Popsicle sticks, find 12 different craft supplies from the backyard, and drum up a band’s worth of musical instruments from the recycling bin, all before lunchtime? Then enter now!

(*Anyone can enter, even dads!)

Upload a photo and instructions for a unique craft you can make with kids by August 9, 2010. Judges from Etsy, Parents, and more will choose one grand-prize-winning craft to feature in a future issue of Parents magazine. In addition, three winners will be picked by fellow crafters to receive $300 worth of craft supplies. Get all the details, rules and regulations at Parents magazine. Good luck, and get crafting!
