Hello! My girls (especially my 6 year old Allie) love to do crafts. They are always asking me to do them and are always proud of their creations. Here are a few that I thought I would share with you- these all mostly use household items (cups, spoons, tape, etc) so you may have everything you need already at your house! Both of my girls ages 6 and 3 had fun with these. Let’s get started.
1. Watercolor Painting
This painting project is really fun for Allie, but my three year old Ashley can also do it with some help.
All you need is a blank sheet of paper and some masking tape. You’re gonna tape up the page any way you like- just place the tape however you want on the page. Allie was able to do her own tape, but I did Ashley’s.
You can use these folded in half to make a birthday card, too- we did that!
2. Plastic/Paper Cup Crafts
This one I’m sure is one everyone knows, but my girls LOVED this.
Just cut two small holes in the bottom of two plastic cups, run a string through each end, and secure with a paper clip.
Pom Pom Launcher
All you’ll need for this craft is a paper or plastic cup, a balloon, and some Pom Poms. Cotton balls also work.
Cut the bottom of the cup off.
3. Spoon Crafts
Draw a face on your spoon, use a cupcake liner folded in half as a skirt, and attach a little shirt and some hair with glue. You could get really creative with this and use googley eyes or yarn as hair. The girls loved these and even made a boy one for their Daddy.
We also used the spoon with a face as the center of a butterfly by just cutting out a shape on a piece of paper and gluing it to the center. We added antennas and jewels to it and there you go! A beautiful butterfly.
4. Treasure Hunt and Craft
Make a list for your kids of things to find outside and give them a ziplock bag. They will have lots of fun finding everything on the list.
That’s it for today! Let me know if you’d like to see more crafts!
