Arts and crafts projects don’t have to take up a lot of time or require expensive materials. You can create fun projects with one key item. Take the Sharpie pen for example. With rainbows of colors available or its signature black ink color, you can put the kids’ art on plates, mugs or even create fashionable statements in the form of unique tees or canvas shoes! Take a look at these fun and creative Sharpie projects that draw out the creative kid in all of us.
