Welcome to another Wacky Workshops project – this week I’m sharing lots of little projects to keep your young children happy and creative.
Most of these projects can be done in a few, simple steps and you probably have everything you need to make them already sitting around your home.
I love being able to decide right away if I’m interested in making something just by looking at the picture.
With these easy instructions, you can let the kids decide which craft they want to do.
CHEAP KID CRAFTS – LET’S GET STARTED
- The little penguin pal below was always a big hit in my kids’ art classes.
- A pretty hat is never out of style – even when it isn’t Easter.
- Using different tools to make paintings is a wonderful way to encourage kids to think outside the box and these colourful flowers, using a plastic fork, are sure to be a hit.
- They have to start with a crooked 6, but the kids love the easy steps to drawing their own birds.
- Start with a treasure hunt in the garden (or a park) to find the wonders to be displayed in your nature weaving. What fun!
- This is a bit of bling both girls and boys will have fun with.
- Four-year-old Goddess just had to make a pink unicorn pop up – they are her very favourite thing. What will you make pop up?
- These little fairies are so sweet and easy to make.
- I love all the different ways to use handprints to make art. This one was a real hit with the four-year-old Goddess.
- What a clever way to turn a number into something super special.
- Do kids ever get tired of making and wearing masks? When there is a bit of glitter involved the world is full of sparkle and magic.
- This is such a sweet way to present a small gift. These pouches would be great for party bags as well.
- Too much art and not enough wall space? Here’s a solution.
- These beautiful, dainty pictures are ridiculously easy with the help of paper doilies.
- I just adored doing this one with my two-year-old Goddess. I’ve laminated the picture to keep – my handprint and hers.
- OK, I know Christmas is a long way away, but you could cut out other shapes for this sparkly fun.
Happy crafting, and have a gleeful week, Tamuria.
