5 Seriously Easy Kid-Friendly Crafts
With many working from home, a big question on parents' minds is: "How on earth am I supposed to entertain my kids for 24 hours a day?"
Here are 5 seriously easy (our definition of easy: minimal parent artistic skill & minimum supplies required) kid-friendly crafts to do with your kids.
1. Tissue Box Monsters
Grab some empty tissue boxes and art supplies, and let your kids' imagination go wild as they create their very own tissue box monsters.
2. Thumbprint Family Tree
Use it as a valuable time to teach your kids about their family ancestry, and share some funny stories about crazy uncle Joe and those war stories your grandfather always told you during dinners.
3. DIY Artsy Collage
Grab a poster paper and paint that the kids can decorate freely as they desire.
Then, grab a stack of newspapers or magazines (if you don't have any, colored advertisements that you get in the mail will do!) to cut out pictures from.
Your kids will spend hours creating their perfect, unique collage of what they like! If they are stuck, encourage them to think about the things they like or help them choose a theme.
4. DIY Princess Wand
Calling all princesses! Everyone knows a princess stuck at home isn't really a princess without her princess wand.
You'll need some craft foam, scissors, hot glue gun / stapler, and a straw to make a one-of-a-kind princess wand.
5. Plastic Bottle Cherry Blossom Art
Don't throw away that water bottle! Combine it with paint to create beautiful cherry blossom artwork with your kids. There is minimal mess with this art project, since kids will find it easy to control their water bottle "paintbrush".
