Family Fun Crafts: 16 Craft Ideas for Kids
Summer is the perfect season to turn off the television and head outside. There are so many fun ways to enjoy the fresh air and warm weather, one of which being a picnic. Before you leave, think of a few summer crafts for kids to make. Picnic crafts for kids can come in all shapes and sizes - make everything from games to recycle crafts that you can throw in your basket.
When you think of crafts that use yarn, you probably imagine crochet hooks, knitting needles and other hazardous, pointy supplies. This makes sense - in general, we tend to picture these items when looking for crafts to do with yarn. This is all about to change though, because with Lion Brand Imagine Yarn, you can simply unroll a skein of yarn and get to work.
It seems that Halloween is as fun to prepare for as it is to celebrate. Spend some time creating homemade Halloween decorations, making homemade Halloween costumes and crafting little giveaway items for trick-or-treaters - you'll really get in the spirit of the season.
If you're short on time but need to keep the kids busy, consider creating a 60 Second Toilet Paper Pumpkin. Fall crafts for kids don't have to be expensive and in this case, you don't even have to head to the craft store. Simply gather up supplies from around your home and you'll be ready to start. Have the kids add their own embellishments to the plain pumpkin so their work really sticks out. Easy fall crafts for kids are a great way to celebrate the season. Best of all, it's an excuse to turn of the television and power down tablets and phones.
