Fun crafts for kids based on games, sport, entertainment and leisure time.
Fun crafts - well, having fun is what it's all about after all!
We already know that kids crafts are great fun. But whatever your kids love to do in their leisure time, be it playing games with their friends, playing sport, riding their bicycle, whatever entertainment they enjoy can be translated into fun crafts for kids.
If you're looking for a theme to base a craft project on, what better subject to choose than one which relates to what the kids enjoy doing best in their leisure time?
And, what's more, there'll be plenty of subjects that'll get the boys interested in kids crafts just as much as the girls!
What better place to start than with my football crazy card? Suitable for boys or girls to make for a friend's birthday - or for Dad or Grandad too.
It's a simple design that can be adapted to depict the recipient's favourite team's colours or player's number. This card project design could also be used to make invitations for a football themed party.
Let them make a jigsaw puzzle using a print of any photo of them enjoying their favourite sport or having fun with their friends or on a family day out.
If they love going out walking in the countryside and getting muddy in their welly boots, only to return home and leave the boots in a heap, encourage the kids to store them neatly with my welly boot keepers!
Make a game to play - twice the entertainment with this idea! Not only will they have fun crafting something, they'll have something to play with afterwards.
Try my old-fashioned hoop-la game in the summer holidays - just like at the fair. It's educational too - practise mathematics by adding up the scores. No cheating!
And have a go at the age-old game of noughts and crosses - just a bit of measuring and cutting out and you'll be ready to play, over and over again, as many times as you wish.
And for another summer project, make the flying saucer and then go outside and enjoy the sunshine. This'll be good exercise too!
So whatever you decide to create, remember, always have fun! That's what fun crafts for kids are all about.
