7 My Family Craft For Kids


I love to craft with my kids. Whether we’re making something together or I’m letting them go wild, crafting is a great way to spend time together and create something beautiful—even if it’s just in the moment. And while my kids are still too young for some of these projects on their own, they enjoy helping me make them nonetheless. These seven family crafts are perfect for getting creative together:

1. Bird Houses

  • Bird houses are easy to make and require only a few materials.
  • To Make a Bird House:
  • First, cut out your squares of paper and punch holes in the middle of each side. Put them together to make your square piece of paper that is now shaped like an open house. Next, fold it in half so it looks like an envelope with one side open and two flaps at the top and bottom.
  • Now you can decorate the outside of your birdhouse with crayons or markers! You can also draw some flowers on top for decoration if you want! There are lots of ways to decorate bird houses, so try different things until you find something that works for you! And don’t forget about color–it’s important too!
  • When Your Finished With Your Bird House:
  • You should hang up all three pieces (two sides plus their matching roof) on either side of your window where there is light coming through during daytime hours but no direct sunlight hitting them directly because this could melt them over time due to heat exposure which could cause more damage than just leaving them alone altogether.”

2. Rainbow Fish Collage

One of the easiest crafts to create with your kids is a rainbow fish collage. All you need is some cardboard, glue and paint. You can use any combination of colors and shapes that you wish to create your own unique masterpiece!

  • Cut out pieces of cardboard in different sizes and shapes
  • Paint them in bright colors of your choosing, then let dry overnight before gluing them onto the paper backdrop (you can also draw out simple patterns on it beforehand if you want)

3. Flower Vase

The materials you’ll need are:

  • A 4-inch vase and a 3-inch vase, or any other size that is proportional.
  • Paper and glue (or tape)
  • Scissors (for cutting the paper)

You can make this craft in about 15 minutes, but it’s best for kids who are 8 years of age or older. This is because younger children may be tempted to eat the flowers or pull off their petals, which will cause them to die faster than an adult could possibly enjoy them! So if your child is under 8 years old and wants to participate in this project with you, please supervise him/her closely while he/she makes his/her own flower arrangement using your supplies! Here’s how:

4. Clothespin butterfly magnets

What you will need:

  • Clothespins (you can get them at the dollar store)
  • Craft paint (you might want to choose a bright color, like red or orange, so the clothespin butterfly magnets are easy to find in your house!)
  • Paintbrush
  • Craft glue (glue gun) or tape (if you use tape, make sure it is not too sticky!)
  • Pom poms for the wings of your butterfly magnet
  • Scissors to cut out paper butterflies

You can also use ribbon and string for hanging if you want.

5. Lacing Buttons and Beads Card

Lacing buttons and beads cards are a great way to teach children to count. You can purchase these at your local craft store or make them yourself. If you decide to make one for yourself, I would suggest using buttons that are the same size so that they are easier for your child to control.

Another option is to use lacing cards as presents for friends and family! They’re cheap enough so that everyone can afford them, but they’re also personalized gifts that show how much you care about the recipient.

Finally, if you want your child(ren) to learn how to count while having fun doing it, then creating a lacing card is perfect! All kids love playing with games like this one because there’s no right answer; rather than just being asked questions about what number comes next or what number was last used on their own personal board (this happens a lot in school), these types of materials allow children who aren’t yet able adults understand some basic ideas such as numbers without penalizing them harshly should their answers be wrong – which will happen from time-to-time anyways during these early stages when they’re starting out learning how things work around here!

6. Make a Hanging Mobile

  • Make a Hanging Mobile

Materials: yarn, buttons, beads, scissors, string and hook (or you can use a nail), glue (optional), colored pencils or markers, construction paper and paint.

  • Cut the yarn into long pieces of 10-20cm each depending on how long you want your mobile to be. You can add more if you want but make sure it doesn’t get too heavy for the ceiling fan to hold up! Tie one end of the string onto one piece of yarn for hanging purposes later on.
  • Now get started on making your mobile art by tying another piece of string near where the last knot was made so that both strings are easily accessible now (do not cut off any excess). Tie another knot here as well just before attaching anything else so that there is no slack left behind later on when we’re finished building this thing together!

7. Make a Finger-Print Tree

What you need:

  • paper
  • pencil
  • crayons (optional) -glue -scissors -poster board -craft knife -paint (optional) Foam paintbrush Glitter Glue stick Glue gun
