Crafts are a great way to add something special to family time at home and create memories that your whole family will cherish. With just a few supplies on hand, you can easily plan special activities to do together and make family time even more meaningful. Here are 5 simple crafts that the whole family can enjoy.
1. Collage Art
Collect photos, magazine clippings, and other items you have on hand to create a fun collage art project. Choose a plain poster board and pick up some glue sticks. Gather your family around the project and let them get creative as they make their own individual collage artwork. Encourage everyone to pick a theme and work together to create something special.
2. Rice Sensory Bins
Gather some uncooked rice, small plastic toys, beans, buttons, or pasta and a container large enough to contain it all. Fill the container with rice, toys, and any other items you have on hand. Give each family member a spoon and let the fun begin! Kids can dip their spoons into the bin and search for buried treasures as they explore their sensory world.
Gather a few balloons, 3 parts of flour and 1 part of cold water and some newspaper. Dip pieces of newspaper into the papier-mâché paste and cover the balloons in layers of papier-mâché. Once the project is dry, pop the balloons and help your kids create whatever they can imagine. They can paint the papier-mâché form with paints and markers and make characters, sculptures, or masks.
