Things have come to a standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools have been closed, companies shut down, and many encouraged to stay or work from home. Young girls are among the most affected people during this quarantine period. As a mother, you can train your daughter to try new things like the cricut machine that will help her develop her business mindset.
If you are curious about why every young girl needs to have a business mindset, check out this article. But if you are ready to get started, consider starting with a machine that might be collecting dust around your house.
Your daughter can start with a Cricut. If you are not already familiar, it is a cutting machine that allows one to design some beautiful crafts. The device also has a special program that will enable you to import designs and cut them electronically. There are many simple projects your daughter can create using a Cricut and put them on sale. With many income-generating streams closed during this period, they can use it to make some cash or flex their creativity during this period of isolation
Simple Cricut Projects Your Daughter Can Make During this Quarantine Period
Cricut is a great machine to have for DIY (Do-it-Yourself) projects. There are several simple and beautiful projects your daughter can make using Cricut. They include:
DIY Shirt Messages
Does your daughter make up fun or inspiring messages?
You can teach your daughter how to make shirts with beautiful messages. Heat-on vinyl, gift wrappers, and foil embossed paper are some of the scrap materials you can present to your daughter for this type of project. (Don’t stress running to the store. See if friends have any scraps). Girly fonts like Quirlycues, Jandles, and Ladylike BB are available online. You can choose them for this project. Girlish messages like ‘I’m Smart, and I Know It’ are great messages to share during times like these. You can choose fun colors like pink or black. Posting a pic with such a t-shirt on social media can also attract many orders from various people who fall in love with it.
So consider turning your daughter’s snappy phrases into fun tshirt slogans.
Leather ‘QUEEN’ Necklace cricut project
Does your daughter like accessories?
This is a simple and fun item your daughter can make using synthetic leather. Synthetic leather is the best because it can easily be cut using the Cricut maker. You can personalize this handmade jewelry to create a perfect mother’s day gift or cheer up a friend or neighbor who is feeling isolated. Faux or synthetic leather is affordable for this project. You can get it from some of your old jackets or handbags so no need to suit up with your mask and gloves and a trip to the store. Let her fix it to a necklace chain to make it wearable.

It’s the perfect idea to share for Mother’s Day because ALOT of people are going to need options this year.

Or let friends know that they can buy from your new business for Mother’s Day. It only requires wax flakes, 8-inch candle wicks, wax colorant preferably pink, and a mason jar.
