Craft Ideas for Kids Home on Vacation

Tuesday, December 27, 2011


Are you tired of your children complaining they are bored when they are home on vacation?  Here are five craft ideas to entertain your children.  These activities are suited for older toddler through the younger elementary children.  Check out these five links to discover fun crafts to do with your children. 


Help! Help! Somebody's in trouble!  Transform your child's doll or stuffed animal into a superhero by making a SUPERHERO CAPE.  Rescue the day with this playful craft.


Create a BIG, modern art piece with a BALL, A BOX, AND A LOT OF PAINT.  Your child will love playing a game of roll the ball while painting at the same time.  


Practice those cutting skills by making a FUNNY FACE.  This is guaranteed to be a project you can do right now because all you need is paper, glue, and scissors.  You get to sneak in some math with this craft.  


Capture the beauty of the outdoors with a NATURE DISPLAY IN A JAR.  Bring some of the earth's treasures inside to enjoy when you are housebound due to poor weather.  


Take your art outdoors by PLAYING WITH PAINT.  Allow your child to express her artistic expression in a unique way.

C&C - Yes, the box with paint was a big hit with Miss E. Her toys were just saving the day today, but one of them was mean and wouldn't another toy be a superhero without the cape. ;)
