ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

We're doing some back to school crafts on a budget today!

Local mom and the author of the blog, Inner Child Fun, Valerie Deneen stopped by 69 News at Sunrise to show us how some common household items and materials from the dollar store can help your little ones get excited for school.

Watch the video attached to this story to see Valerie's ideas and to meet her special helper, Mattea!
