It’s so nice to keep kids busy these days without phones and electronics. Most of my greatest memories are doing all sorts of DIY crafts at my Nanny’s house and that is probably why to this day I still love crafts and when I actually get to sit and do some DIY it is like a break from the world!
Check out these crafts for your kiddos!
What a fun hand tree!!!
This one might get a little messy but nothing a table cloth for the dollar tree can’t cover!
- You will need red, yellow, orange and brown paint.
- 1 large piece of white construction paper
- Small paint brush
Paint your kiddos arm and hand, quickly press down on the paper (once this is done you can immediately wash the arm and hand off)
Now let the real fun begin!
Lay out the red, yellow and orange paints. Dip each finger into the colors and make fun fall leaves all over!
Allow time for adequate drying!
Try using double sided magnets to hang on the fridge easily.
TAlso try the fun plates!
-For this kid, friendly craft all you need for colored plates. You can usually find these at the dollar store or at your local grocery store in the isle with regular paper plates.
- Black, White, Green or Brown construction paper.
- Fun googly eyes
- Black marker
- Glue (Elmer’s works great)
Start by drawing an outline of the pieces you need to cut out: bat wings and ears, Frankenstein’s hair and screws, pumpkins teeth and stem.
Once you have all the pieces traced, let the kids cut them out or glue them on after you have cut them out. (If you let the kiddos cut make sure you use safety scissors 😊)
After all the paper pieces are glued on, add your fun googly eyes!
If you want to hang these up you can use double sided tape, add a small ribbon to make a little loop in the back, or even use magnets to place them on the fridge!
