20 Awesome Crafts for Kids!

8 Flares Filament.io 8 Flares ×

Spring break, rainy days, and long summer vacations will be here before I know it. My kids have about a 50/50 chance of figuring out what to do on their own, and they spend the rest of the time saying “I’m bored” and asking me what they can do.

I have decided to prepare for the seemingly unavoidable phrase “I’m bored” and I’m taking my inspiration from this month – which is National Craft Month – to start my planning.

Here are craft projects that are perfect for little ones (preschool and early elementary aged)


Handprint Sun
Painted Rock Pets
Glowing Glitter Wishes in a Jar
Edible Snowman
Air Plane Magnet
Colored Rice Rattle
Hand Print Lamb
Rainbow Ice Ball
Window Snowflake
Chinese New Year Dragon
Sign Language Valentine’s Day Card
Owl Painting
Pony Bead Suncatcher
No Sew Bean Bags (and a great game to play with them: Rhyming Game)
Easy Peasy Friendship Bracelets
Homemade Play Dough
Quick and Easy Salt Dough
Make Your Own Crayons
Octopus Puppets
Cardboard Crown


Enjoy and Happy Crafting :)
