7 Magical Crafts for Kids

Transform playtime with a batch of magical makes that will inspire creativity and imagination. Little ones will need an adult’s help to get started on these projects, but they’ll love personalising each design with their favourite colours and embellishments. With unicorns, monsters and rockets to choose from, let’s dive in!

7 Magical Crafts for Kids

1. Hooded towels

For the little ones in your life who aren't always thrilled about bath time, turn the everyday into a magical adventure with a handmade hooded towel. Becky Cole’s step-by-step tutorial will help you stitch an amazing unicorn design, complete with a bright pink horn, cute little ears and a fun pom-pom mane. If you want something a little more roar-some, try Becky’s monster hooded towel make, which you can personalise any way you like.

2. Dinosaur tail costume

What child isn’t awe-struck by dinosaurs? Upgrade any dressing up box with a fantastic DIY dinosaur tail project. With step-by-step sewing instructions that even a beginner could master, there’s no reason not to get stuck into this make. Plus, you can really make the design your own by personalising the tail with different colours and adding extra embellishments. Imaginative play will never be the same again!

3. Papercraft mailboxes

Although our papercraft mailboxes were designed with Valentine’s Day in mind, these rainbow unicorn and smiling shark designs can be repurposed to hold special notes and treats year round. It’s a great way to get the kids involved in crafting – and best of all, once the kids help create a mailbox they can start coming up with their own greeting card designs to post through!

4. Unicorn geometric embroidery

Upcycling is a great way to make something new for your wardrobe, and help the environment, too. This embroidery project is the answer to any plain, boring denim shirts, jackets or jeans. Let your little one choose the colours of their unicorn design, and then cover their clothing with fabulous geometric embellishments! New to embroidery? Not to worry. For this project you’ll only need to learn one stitch.

5. Monster pouch

Searching for a fun way for your kids to store their pencils and pens? Look no further than Lizzie Barnes’ monster pouch, a simple craft that will be an instant hit among young ones. This project is great for beginner stitchers, but it can also be completed with minimal to no sewing if you replace the stitching steps with hot glue. Although it’ll be less sturdy, it’ll make personalising your design that bit easier.

6. Toy rocket

Kelly Jordan’s little toy space rocket will wow any child with its out-of-this-world design. To get started, pick out a colourful fat quarter pack and coordinating felt. Once you’re ready to get started, you can machine or hand stitch – whatever’s your preference. If you like, you can even upload the PDF template to your ScanNCut to resize it for a bigger or smaller rocket design.

7. Quick and easy paper sword

Help your little pirate or knight fend off the baddies with a simple paper sword project. Not only is this make the perfect addition to a dressing up box, but it is so easy you’ll be able to create one in less than an hour. Plus, your paper design will be much safer to play with than a plastic alternative. Create yours with a sheet of silver or mirri card to make an extra impressive sword!
