20 Unique Unicorn Crafts for Kids to Make
Unicorns are probably the sweetest mythological creatures that even kids love! Spread some magic around with these unique unicorn crafts for kids that are just gorgeous!
“But is the unicorn a falsehood? It’s the sweetest of animals and a noble symbol.”
It’s Unicorn Day on April 9th – yes, Unicorn Day!! If you’re like me and you love unicorns, you’ll agree that the unicorn completely deserves it’s own day!
Like Umberto Eco said in the quote above, no one is sure about the origin of the unicorn. Yet, we all wish it were real. Unicorns evoke feelings of love, innocence and kindness – things that are getting increasingly rare in this world.
So this Unicorn Day, let’s revive this kindly spirit of unicorns by doing some awesome unicorn crafts with our kids. And here’s another reason – they’re drop dead gorgeous!!
