Arts and Crafts for Kids

Of all the activities that I do with the kids arts and crafts are my favourite I love seeing them produce something whether it’s a craft that has a specific end product in mind or whether it’s art that they lead the way and for all I know could end up as a big brown sheet of paper where they have painted it with every colour that we have it’s fantastic to see them get creative.

7 Projects for arts and crafts with Kids

This week from last week’s Tuesday Tots I’m sharing some ideas for arts and crafts for kids.

First off is this Confetti Collage from Picklebums I love the mix of the collage making and motor development included in it and it’s something that we’re going to give a go this week.

A slight difference on the collage is our collages from last week it’s great for using up those scraps of paper left over from your craft projects with the kids.

Contact Paper or sticky back plastic is fantastic for great mess free gluing activities and can be used to create some really attractive projects – this Hot Air Balloon Craft from House of Burkes looks a lot of fun and we have loads of balloons to make some of these.

We used contact paper to create a stained glass window inspired by the Great Artist Mondrian last year.

Creating Art using tools apart from brushes is a lot of fun for kids of all ages from the start of using finger paints – see our recipe for basic finger paints that are edible to painting with different tools like this activity from Little Bins for little hands who used Kitchen Utensils for Painting.

One material that I am yet to use with my kids is Paper Mache (but I have lots of ideas) but after our week was focused on dinosaurs last week (you would have seen lots of dinosaur based activities following our Facebook Page or on Instagram) and one of the activities I shared was making this dinosaur cave by Crayon Box Chronicles.
