Crafts for Kids

We have a huge selection of fun and easy craft ideas for kids of all ages. Lots of our crafts make use of items that can be found around the house.

Happy Sticks

Kids can make these happy sticks (using common household materials) as a way to celebrate a special event, special holiday or… just because.

Heart Mice

Kids can make mice using heart shapes.

Heart Mobiles

With just a few materials, you and your students can create a mobile with a Valentine’s Day theme. This is a fun and kinetic project!

Heart-Shaped Photo Card

Kids can use a photograph of themselves to create a one-of-a-kind card for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or any other special occasion.

Homemade Face Paint

Face paint is inexpensive when you make it yourself, and it’s safer than a mask that can obscure vision. Try these ghoulish recipes yourself!

Homemade Play Dough

Make your own play dough using this recipe. This is our favourite homemade clay recipe of all time!

Layered Sand Jars

Layer colored sand or salt in a jar to create a beautiful sculpture.
