12 Kid's Craft Ideas

With school out I am already looking for ways to keep my G kids busy. It's too hot to play out most days so I have them inside almost all the time. Here are a dozen ideas I liked. 

You have to click over to What Happens At Grandmas to see just how cute this little cook book is! I LOVE it, such a sweet and fun idea. You go Grandma Joyce! 

Here is another one good one from What Happen's At Grandmas, so cute! 

Custom flipsflops

Get the kids and embellish some flip flops. I bought flip flops at Micheal's' this weekend for  99 cents each. Head over to The DIY Dreamer for this one. 

Crafty Journal - Plastic Lid Stamps

Oh my how I love this one! You know how much stamps cost, well this one will only be pennies and the kids will have lots to choose from. Head over to Crafty Journal for the instructions. 

This sweet hand print is a great gift idea, go over to A Bunch of Bishops to see how they are made. 

This is a fun painting technique and your kids will like it too. A Typical English Home linked this one up. 

What do you think about these felt puppets? I think they are pretty cute and my grand kids could have a lot of fun with these. They can make up a story line and have a show for me :)    Art Club Blog has the easy tutorial. 


Yes that is a Christmas card but you got use any card for this sewing card idea. All kids should learn to sew and this is a good place to start.  Stop by Craft Journal for more. 


I really love this one and I can see so many possibilities  Add hair for example. How about you, what would you do with this craft idea? Art Club Blog has the instructions.
