There is nothing better on a wet day than some paper mache crafts for kids. There are so many things you can make you will be surprised!
I have fond memories of making paper mache from newspaper as a child at School!
I have to be honest I cannot remember exactly what we made but I do remember mixing newspaper with glue and water! I absolutely loved the consistency of it all! I found it soothing!
Now as an adult I love watching my kids experience this and I have been doing my best to come up with some great projects.
I have a few of my own and some from my fellow crafters! We have everything from Santa’s sack to a baseball and some fake apples!! As well as seasonal crafts we also have some educational ones thrown in!
I do plan on adding to this list as I discover new ideas. Please let me know your favorites or anything else you would like to see here.
Why not make a paper mache Earth and use it for a mobile. This is a great craft all year long but is very popular on Earth day!
Anyone for a game of baseball?! This paper mache baseball is much softer than real thing. It will be a massive hit for sports fans.
Everyone needs some sunshine in their lives and now they can with this sun paper mache craft, which doubles up as a pinata.
Out of all the crafts shown here this one is currently my favorite!
I actually like it looks a little like a lion's face as well as a sun!
I love weather crafts and these rainclouds show that rain and clouds can be fun sometimes.
I have tons of Christmas crafts on my site but I especially love this Santa sack loaded with sweet treats!
This would make a brilliant gift or even a nice decoration on your mantelpiece.
Kids love nothing more than the consistency of paper mache and these fake apples look great! You could make other fruits too and even a bowl to put them in! This would make a good centerpiece on a dining table.
I love incorporating learning into craft and this erupting volcano is perfect for school age kids Science lessons.
This paper mache chicken basket is perfect for Spring and Easter egg hunts!! How cute does it not look.
Why not do some chick crafts at the same time, or even my paper plate Easter treat basket which can also be used for gathering goodies!
I love piggy bank crafts for kids because, 1 they are fun and 2 they encourage little ones to save money! This can help teach the value and importance from an early age.
This dinosaur paper mache pig bank is perfect for boys (and girls). My 3 year old son loves T Rex at the minute so this would be right up his street.
