Kids just cannot sit idle nor can they do the same activity for a long time. They get distracted easily and leave most activities incomplete. So, you need different fun activities and crafts to keep the kid indulged. These activities should be fun, creative, and something that can add to a child’s intelligence.
Here I have listed 7 such kids’ crafts that your kid will enjoy making. The best part is all of this can be made while sitting in the comfort of home.
Homemade play dough
You might have witnessed kids playing with playdough in different playschools or at your friend’s home. This is the easiest and the most fun activity that a kid enjoys doing. If you allot them some work to develop their skills, they might deny. But no kid will deny crafting new things from the dough. This is because molding the dough provides a therapeutic as well as an educational session to a child.
When a child makes different shapes from the dough, it helps the child to develop strength and control. This also helps the child to refine its motor skills. This dough is easily available in the market and can also be made at home at a cheaper price.
Making a rainbow wand helps the kid with the cutting skills. The different colors help the child to become creative and also make a child optimistic. The colors leave a positive impact on the child’s mind so that they stay fresh and cheerful the entire day.
This rainbow wand is very easy to make and only needs a glitter card, colorful ribbons, scissors, and glue. If your kid is creative, you can help him customize the wand with beads, gems, etc.
Have you noticed the tie-dye trend these days? This is loved by all adults too. But do you know this is such a simple thing to do that even your kid can do without your guidance? They simply have to roll up and tie the t-shirts and splash colors according to their wish.
When you open the tied part, you see that a pattern is already formed. The formed designs are always unique and so your kid can flaunt these t-shirts among their friends with pride.
Paper hats are not only simple to make, but also don’t require any other props. They can use old newspapers or wrapping paper to make these hats. This is a creative activity that your kid will enjoy doing and also teach his friends.
But for you, as a parent, it will be a big benefit because this develops the hand-eye coordination and concentration skills within the child. You can use these hats in different games and origami processes too.
You might have seen kids imitating their parents. They love to do that because they think whatever the parents are doing is the ideal thing. That’s why they try to copy the parents.
You can recreate a kitchen from old shoe boxes and get them some kids’ play pots and kitchen accessories so they can have their own time.
Even adults are attracted to dream catchers. So, this is a definite fun craft for your kids. You can just get them some beads and feathers.
Then, leave the rest to your kid and let them be creative with it. These dream catchers relieve you from anxieties and nightmares. If they need help, be a guide and help them with strings and imagination.
Again, this is the easiest craft for kids. However, there’s some cutting and sticking to be done. So, we recommend adult supervision. Although you need to spend some time with your kid for this one, it will help them develop their motor skills.
