Have you ever searched "little girl crafts" or "little girl craft ideas" to find entertainment ideas for a girl's birthday party? Then you know how frustrating it can be to see lots of girl's crafts, but few of them including instructions for making the craft.

These days, because I'm retired, I have the time to check through lots of sites to find great little girls crafts with instructions included. In this article I'm going to share pictures, and the site names, where you can find the craft shown.

I have little granddaughters who love to make crafts. The girls have many interests and enjoy using all the different craft supplies. The next time they come to grandma's house to do a projects, I'll be prepared. I hope that you and your little girls will find crafts for girls to make also.

To make the "Girls Only" door hanger shown above, go to Family Disney for the instructions.
