So you want to do a craft project with your kids but you don’t have the dozen or so things needed to make something amazing? Don’t be intimidated by a materials list! From edible necklaces to easy bird-feeders, here are our five-ingredient-or-fewer faves.

Personalized Coasters

These personalized tiles make great coasters or unique wall art and require only three ingredients to make. (A bunch of these and your kiddo has her Christmas list covered!). Australian mamas Louise and Jenni have the super-easy instructions here.

Materials: White tiles, Sharpie markers, clear finish.
