I have yet to meet a child that does not enjoy painting and drawing, and today there are so many different types of artwork sets available, they can paint by numbers, create glitter pictures, and even design their own face-masks. These crafts for kids are relatively inexpensive and can create hours of entertainment.
Sewing is another great craft that both girls and boys enjoy. Child friendly sewing kits are widely available in toy stores and through online retailers, and can include anything from sewing cards, clothes for a favourite toy, and even sewing pictures that can be hung on their bedroom wall.
Puppet making has long been a favourite in our house, and my children love to build their own. A great craft for kids, puppet making not only keeps them occupied while they build their favourite puppet, but the completed toys are then played with for hours and even days afterwards. Perhaps the best thing about crafts for kids is the look of complete satisfaction and pride on your child’s face once they have completed their very own “work of art”. Get your kids creative this summer, and leave the TV for another rainy day.
