Craft projects are a great way for both adults and children to relieve some stress and explore their creative side. It’s always worth having a box of crafting tools ready for those spontaneous artistic sessions. Since the colder months are on their way, there’s no time like the present to start a fantastic new craft project with your kids.
Some craft projects are, of course, a little easier to grasp than others, but your child will feel proud and satisfied when creating something with their own hands. They truly will feel a strong sense of achievement which is enough reason to encourage them to get into crafting. Read on for some unique inspiration for the next crafting project with your little ones.
A Lego Snow Globe: Grab a little Lego figurine, an empty glass jar, some glitter and some water. Glue the figurine to the inside of the lid of the jar, fill the jar with water and glitter and voila, you have yourselves a homemade snow globe in no time at all.
Giant Pom-Pom Necklace: This one’s pretty self-explanatory; all you need to do is feed some strong string through several giant pom-poms of different colours for a vibrant new accessory.
Duck Tape Beach Bag: Using coloured/patterned tape, you and your kids can easily create a stunning, sturdy new beach bag. You’ll need to supervise your child whilst they use a craft knife and cutting board. For more information, please click here.
Aquarium Themed Buttons: Using brightly coloured giant buttons, googly eyes and some coloured card, you can create lots of little fish for your home-made aquarium.
Giant Spiders: With Halloween just around the corner, giant spiders made from newspaper stuffed paper bags (painted to your desired colours) are a great craft project. You’ll need pipe cleaners for the legs and googly eyes of different sizes.
