Most Adorable And Easy Crafts For Kids To Try This Weekend:
DIY Caterpillar Craft:
We have seen that kids are fascinated by the caterpillars. They love to draw caterpillars and anything related to these creatures. First of all, make your kid read the beautiful children’s’ book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and they will slowly start loving these easy crafts for kids. You need to provide some colorful papers, scissors, and glue to let them sit and start. And when the body of the caterpillar is ready, let them attach the googly eyes to the face with the help of glue. Make cute expression on the caterpillar’s face with the help of black construction paper and the cute little craft is ready to place on the table.
Paper Craft Owl:
Owl crafts are not only for the Halloween decorations. These winged creatures are adorable to look at and will add dramatic personality to your room when crafted the right way.
The supplies needed are bathroom tissue tube, cupcake liner for the wings, tapes, glue, card stocks to make the beaks and the eyes, marker pen to draw the pupil and dots on the eyes. This is one of the best easy crafts for kids and they will love going through the owl-making process so much.
Ladybug Painted Rocks:
For this project, your kids will need some smooth river rocks. If you are visiting any riverside vacation destination soon, make them pick up some rocks for themselves. The rocks need not be very big, smaller oval or rounder rocks would be the best for this project. If you can not manage to go to the riverside, there are many garden stores or craft supply stores where you can buy them from for a very affordable price.
As this is an outdoor project, you should be buying patio paints so that the color can withstand sun and rain. Apart from rocks and patio paint in different colors, you need to buy an outdoor mod podge or patio paint clear coat, toothpick, and a paintbrush. That’s all.
Your kids will love to transform a simple rock into a colorful lively ladybug. This one of the easy crafts for kids will also serve as a functional decorative item. They can be used as great garden edging stuff or you can also keep one of them on your bedside table to add a quirky touch to your indoor décor.
Paper Plate Tropical Fish:
Just a look at them and anybody will start loving these cute little colorful fishes. If a paper plate can be transformed into such an adorable and creative craft piece, what are you waiting for? Let your kids use their holiday afternoons in a productive way that will both entertain them and will make them grow the love for other animals.
Let them use their own imagination and make them go random with the colors and patterns they choose. It is always not necessary to make an existing species of fish all the time, you understand what we mean, right? Just a few cutting, gluing, and painting game, and hurray! your joyful, cheerful, vibrant little fishes are ready to awe everybody around them.
Lego Candy Dispenser:
This DIY craft uses two of the most favorite things of your kiddo. Lego and candies. Even when we were young, we loved to play with Legos. And now these interlocking plastic bricks are more elaborate and upgraded. We got this brilliant idea from ‘Frugal Fun 4 Boys’ and we are just digging it. The tutorial shows brilliant instructions on how to make the LEGO candy dispenser perfectly but your kid can anytime customize it in his own way. Fill in the machine with all those M&Ms and other candies and let your kids have a sugar treat anytime they want. (NOT ALL THE TIME THOUGH, TOO MUCH SUGAR IS A BIG NO, NO.)
Origami Corner Bookmarks:
If your kids do not enjoy reading, this fun craft will give them a reason to spend more time with their books. This fun project is apt for the beginners and kids of any age group will find it interesting. This origami is a woodland animal origami and all your kids need to do is to print and fold. Let them choose their favorite animals and you can lend your helping hand by printing the woodland animal clipart printables. Now they are ready to make their favorite animal bookmarks. Foxes! Or an owl! Or even a bunny! It is all up to their choice. IT IS ONE OF THE MOST DROOLWORTHY AND EASY CRAFTS FOR KIDS WE HAVE EVER COME ACROSS!
