Art Crafts For Kids

Just because it is a “kid’s craft” doesn’t mean it has to be a throw away time waster…Doing crafts with your kids is a lot of fun — especially when your kids can create real art that will last a lifetime. Here are a few tips and resources that make making artistic crafts with your children super easy.

1. Create To Save

When selecting a crafty project to do with your little ones, think ahead of time about how you can store or display the projects. I don’t know about you, but too many of my kids art projects have gotten lost, destroyed on the kitchen table, or totally smooooshed in a move because there was no good way to store them safely. Painted art pieces that are 8 and a half by 11 are easily stored in an album or three ring binder with plastic sleeves. Little Popsicle stick turkeys can be displayed in shadow boxes and hung in a quiet spot on the wall. We are creating art, not junk — let’s showcase their little finger paintings! (Tip: Don’t forget to date your child’s artwork…trust me, ten years from now you will be glad you did!)
