5 Crafts To Enjoy With Little Ones

Whether it's to entertain your own children or make memories with the grandkids, these crafts will be a sure hit with little crafters

5 Crafts To Enjoy With Little Ones

1. BUTTON TREE ART

For kids who are a bit older, you could use some old buttons to create a fun and colourful tree artwork. If you don't have a stash of buttons in your craft kit, you could use our Button Mixed Colours And Sizes 800pcs pack, which contains a variety of colours. Create the base of the design by drawing a brown trunk and some branches onto a canvas. A canvas works better than card or paper because it will hold the weight of the buttons when displayed. Then, simply glue down the buttons onto the branches to create the effect of leaves and flowers! This is a versatile craft as you’re not limited to just trees - any shape filled with buttons would look spectacular.

2. MONSTER HANDPRINTS

If you lovingly refer to your kids as ‘little monsters’, this may be the craft for you. Get your child to create some handprints, using bright paints like our Plus Color Craft Paint Colourful Colours 6x250ml. You don’t have to stick to the classic handprint shape - create different monsters with different positions of the hand. If you're feeling adventurous, you could even use a footprint! Once these are dry, you can add as many or as few googly eyes as you want. To finish off the monsters, use a marker pen to add extra details like teeth, ears or hair. Make the monsters as silly or as scary as you wish!

3. CATERPILLAR CLOTHES PEGS

Create some fuzzy caterpillar friends out of spare wooden clothes pegs. The only other things you’ll need are some multicoloured pom poms, such as our Assorted Coloured Pom Poms 720pcs, and a few googly eyes. Children can enjoy sticking down the pom poms in new colour combinations, and making funny expressions on the caterpillars faces by switching up the eye placement. Plus, once the caterpillars are finished, they’ll make great toys for inspiring imaginative play.

4. LEAFY LION CRAFT

Get outdoors with this king of the jungle craft. Put on your wellies and have a look outside for some rust-toned orange leaves. The more you find, the more majestic your lion’s mane will be. When you get home, glue the leaves into a circle on some white paper or card, leaving a small gap in the middle. In the gap, use a black marker to draw some eyes, a nose and whiskers for your new feline friend!

5. GLITTER COUNTING STICKS

These counting sticks have double the benefits - the kids will love making them, but they can also be used for learning numbers once complete. Simply number lollypop sticks from one to ten, and let the children add the corresponding amount of glitter glue in blobs across the stick. Use a different colour for each stick, like the ones in our Moxy Glitter Glue Bright and Bold- 12 pack. Once they’ve dried, the glue should be slightly raised, giving children a physical aid in reaching the number.
