Welcome to Aunt Annie's Crafts!

Take a look around. You'll find crafting fun for children, teens and adults. A craft how-to is featured each Monday, with a special craft treat added each Wednesday, and at the end of the week it's Friday Fun with simple crafts for families, groups or classrooms.

Featured this week: Cute additions to your Easter eggs!
