We Love Crafting!

When you have children, crafting is a must: it keeps little ones engaged and helps them develop their imagination and fine motor skills (see the benefits of crafting with children here). There’s no need for any special aptitude: with a bit of guidance, any child can make these adorable crafts for kids.

Fun is Our Aim!

Crafts should be an integral part of every kid’s life: they promote creativity and allow great use of their imagination.

What do my Craft Directions Contain

  • All of our easy crafts for kids are super simple to make!
  • They use only a few craft supplies & each has a shopping list.
  • Each kids craft is provided step by step – with pictures too.

My craft directions are very simple to follow, older kids should be able to follow by themselves. Younger kids can take get some help from an adult. Craft directions are broken down into a simple description of the craft, materials and tools needed followed by step by step instructions. Quite often there are images; most of my origami crafts are images for each step so that you never go wrong. 

In some cases I mention other variations of the craft or ways to make them a little bit different; this is especially handy if you want to make lots of the same thing. 

These crafts are handy to take along to school, parties, or just the kitchen table! It gives you the ease of steps and an end goal, so you don’t have to try to create these yourself.

Must Have Craft Supplies For Kids

When you start crafting you will realise that there are some craft supplies you use over and over again! It is a great idea to keep a supply of these in your cupboards at all times.

A little hint here, make sure they are either well hidden or in a lockable area – I have learnt this the hard way, as my little girl uses all my supplies as soon as I turn my back. Then when I plan out a nice craft, usually on a wet Sunday afternoon, I have nothing left!! 

If you were only going to buy 3 things I would say colored paper, scissors and glue. You would be totally shocked at what you can create with these three things.
