Christmas, New year or Mother’s Day cards are kids favorite. Your friends and relatives will love handmade cards more than printed ones. Choose the paper, draw the line and cut along the line you just drew. Let your kids do rest of the work. Allow them to color, draw something, write some message or even dedicate it to someone special.
Animal crafts will look amazing in kid’s room. You can use paper, fabrics or plasticine. Search for old fabrics and materials you don’t need anymore. If your kid is old enough to start stitching, teach him/her how to do it. However, watch closely while they do it. If you use plasticine, let your kids make all the shapes.
Flower crafts are usually made from paper or plasticine. However, one of the most interesting is a flower craft made from the eggshell. Let your kid color an eggshell using a marker pen. Then, use a straw and glue it to an eggshell. Let it dry for a few hours. Cut leaf-shaped forms from the paper and color it. Finally, attach paper leaves to straw using glue.
Use cardboard you don’t need anymore. Cut out a wide rectangle along the front, sides, and the back to form towers. Use markers, crayons to decorate the castle the way you want. You can then use cardboard castle to put kids toys or clothes.
