Pokemon Go Craft: Pokeball Tin

My kids love to play Pokemon Go, and I love that it gets us all out of the house and doing something together (see a whole list of reasons I love Pokemon Go Here). But, sometimes, I just want to stay in. Doing a Pokemon Go craft with the kids lets me avoid the heat on the crazy-hot days, and still gives in to their love of all things Pokemon! This Pokeball Tin is easy to make with the kids – and they’ll love playing with it afterwards! They can draw pictures of their favorite Pokemon to “catch” in their DIY Pokeball Tin.

If you want to check out some other fun Pokemon crafts, Jessica from Mad in Crafts made some fun Pokeball bath bombs, and Angie from The Country Chic Cottage made some Pokeball party lanterns.
