MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!

MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Make your own bug buddy

Look at this cute little bug! This simple craft will allow your children to use their imaginations and build an army of bug buddies!

To make the blanks all you need is some plaster of Paris ( you can pick this up at a craft store) and a few plastic spoons. You can do these up ahead of time for your children or let them make the blanks with you. We used 2 parts plaster to 1 part water. We dripped the plaster into the spoons which we propped on the edge of a paper plate to make them level.

Wait 30 minutes before turning the blanks out.Once the blanks are dry they should just pop right off the spoon. If they don't, bend the spoon a little. Now all you need is to bust out the paints and wiggly eyes! Since this is plaster it will suck up the paint and dry fast which is great since you know the children are so going to want to play with them asap!

This craft is now on Tip Junkie!!
