Arts and crafts are so fun to do with the kids and there are so many great projects. You can find great ideas to do with the kids or you can give them directions and watch how they follow and complete the craft. Either way its a learning experience for the child and it also gives them something to do and learn while they are at it. Some ideas for arts and crafts are: paper plate crafts these are always easy because most of the time you already have plates on hand at home. Make them into animals like snakes, pigs, frogs, ladybugs and more. You can also turn them into food – how about watermelon, lemons & limes? Turn a plate into a clock and teach kids how to tell time. They can also be turned into musical instruments, baskets and so much more. How we learn has 75 ideas for paper plate crafts.
Other ideas kids would love: make slime, homemade playdoh, or gak. All these provide hours of fun for kids to play with. A basic slime recipe is glue, liquid starch and food coloring or paint to color. You can make playdoh with items you already have in your kitchen.
Popsicle stick crafts are another fun idea. You can turn them into airplanes, animals, puzzles, flowers and more. Powerful Mothering has 25 creative ideas for kids popsicle crafts.
