I love cute things no matter what they are ~ puppies, kittens, crafts and kids (not in that specific order) 😉  I was looking for something to occupy my youngest son during the first week of summer vacation and found this cute idea ~ juggling chickens.

Are you looking for something to occupy the kids this summer? These fabric juggling chickens are so easy to make ~ you can even make them with the kids ~ and they are so much fun to play with |cupcakesandcrinoline.com

 You could make 10 of them (two sets of five) and use them for a bean-bag tic-tac-toe game ~ I still have to do that but I do think it would be super adorable….or you could just make 3 and insist that your child learn to juggle!
