7 DIY Craft for kids is our modest way to bring some cool ideas we found in other great parenting blogs.
Hey, holidays are just around the corner, right?
And, let’s face it, we all have the same questions: How will we get our kids busy, how can we get them to do something different while having fun doing it?
How can we get them engaged doing unusual, yet cool, things? Well, knowing this, we went online and searched for the best and coolest DIY Craft for kids.
Things you can do with your kids and also things they can do on their own and, especially, things they can play with and have fun.
Enjoy! We’ll be testing all of them in the upcoming holidays.
Best and Coolest DIY Craft for kids
1) Rainbow Bubble Snakes
This is a great DIY Craft for kids but clearly one for outside so, depending on where you are, you may need to wait for the warmer season.
“All you need is an empty water bottle from your recycling, duct tape, a sock that is missing its match (which we seem to have an abundance of), dish soap and some food coloring.”
Check the tutorial here.
2) 3 Ingredient DIY From Paint
This is a craft that is half art and half science and your kids will love it.
Do you remember the bakers with that “funnel bag” adding the icing on a cake?
It is exactly what your kids will look like doing this craft.
Check the full tutorial here.
3) Toy Parachute Craft
In terms of DIY Craft for kids, when I (the husband) was a kid, this was clearly my favorite toy.
I have to admit that, back in the days, this was one of my favorite toys to play with.
For a boy, this is such a great gift.
Check the tutorial here to make your own parachute toy.
4) Craft Stick Bracelets
This is so funny and, to be honest, we had no idea this could be made like this.
It’s amazing how everything you’ll need is hot water, a glass, a handful of craft sticks and a high dosage of creativity.
And, for the decoration, we would advise you to start here.
For a full tutorial, check here.
5) Marble slide
Unfortunately, where we found this one, the tutorial is not available anymore but from the picture, we can guess exactly how it is made.
And sure looks great.
From the look of it, you will need craft sticks, some paper towels as well as toilet paper rolls and a place to set them all up.
Then, the bigger the better.
Have your kids collect and save the rolls so that they actually have enough and some spare ones for when the time arrives to build the slide.
By the way, check this one out. We had no idea these existed but they look great.
6) How to make a PVC bow and arrow
To be honest, when I (the clumsy dad) first saw this tutorial, I thought this would definitely be an expert level craft.
But then I recall I have a wife and mother-in-law that were made to craft these things.
It’s impressive how easy things look when they’re the ones in charge.
Check the full tutorial.
7) Self-made domino
This is such a cool idea.
You can actually make these under different topics.
A family domino, animals, places, numbers, letters, you name it.
Regarding the tutorial, we made the online search and we found these great wooden pieces that you can use for your own domino.
Here is the tutorial.
Fun 7 DIY Craft for kids
As you can see, there are great ways to have your kids busy doing cool stuff.
With holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start planning how we can get our kids busy, doing cool stuff. Without technology.
It’s not a bad idea to explore these ideas with them and pick the ones they want to do.
And have them making part of the purchase process of the needed supplies.
For our next holidays, we’ll try them all.
Ambitious, but they all look so great.
Just like we teach our kids to ask what they want, I’ll ask you to take a second to share “7 DIY Craft for kids” with your audience. They respect great content.
