Easy DIY crafts are a great choice for a fun kids’ activity. This is something you can supervise them doing or also do together as a family. It might surprise you that even with easier, simple crafts that you and your child can get great results with so many projects. DIY crafts can make terrific Thank You gifts for teachers at the end of the school year. They are also great to give to Grandparents for birthdays, holidays or simply to make them smile. Whether your child is very young or older, fortunately you’ll find lots o fideas for them to try.
You’ll find kids projects that use inexpensive supplies, such as Popsicle sticks, toilet paper rolls or paper plates. Most likely you’ll even have some of these on hand even before you’ve thought of doing this craft. Keep in mind that if your child especially likes one type of craft – such as paper bag puppets, that you will find quite a few other projects to make that are using the same materials, just have a different craft theme. Doing some different crafts can give them confidence in their craft skills too and is also a lot of fun.
If your child is new to trying a type of craft, we recommend that you do it together so they can see how it is done. Have fun & Happy Crafting!
