Craft King

crafts_for_kids

Craft time helps kids use their imagination, grow their patience, and learn more about themselves as well as the tools available to them. Though craft time my seem like a time-consuming and tiring task when you have a busy schedule, you’ll be surprised how many easy and fun crafts there are for your kids to do. Furthermore, once they are in the zone creating a new imaginative piece of work, time will pass quickly for them, and you’ll have a moment to clean the house, plan meals, or do laundry. It is important that you spend time with them while they’re learning, but it is also a good lesson for them to learn how to occupy themselves, and work independently with light supervision (depending on their age of course).

These are a few of my favorite crafts, but you can find a lot more if you want to venture onto Pinterest, or mommy blogs.

Magic Milk:

Create a color explosion with this simple recipe:

  • Milk
  • Dishwashing liquid in a small dish/container
  • Food colouring
  • Wooden skewers
  • Deep dish/plate

For a post-beach activity, build a few shell-fishies:

  • Assorted seashells
  • Googly eyes, various sizes
  • Hot glue gun or instant grab glue

This little caterpillar is especially cute. Sponges and paint are fun for adults even, and though this is a simple little craft, it comes out looking clean and definitely fridge-worthy.

  • White painting paper (or other thick paper)
  • Tempera Paints
  • Sponges
  • Scissors
  • Black pipe cleaners
  • Black marker or crayon
  • Scraps of construction paper (or googely eyes)

Craft time can refresh your daily routine, and give your kids something to look forward to which they will remember and admire for years to come. Saved crafts from the younger years are the sacred artifacts of childhood that store more nostalgia than any picture or teddybear. Taking time for a craft or two is simple and is the most gratifying experience in return.
