How many times have you heard it so far this summer? If the words, “I’m bored” are repeated all too often at your house then we’ve got some great ideas for you! Check out our We R blog roundup of 11 Kids Craft Ideas and you’ll have an easy remedy for summer boredom.
To start off our kids craft roundup, we’ve got a darling Chalkboard Countdown created by design team member Jennie McGarvey. While this countdown is summer-themed, you could easily adapt it to fit any exciting event your kids are looking forward to, like a family vacation or the first day of school.
Next up is a fun kids birthday party favor made from an origami favorite. These Fortune Teller Party Favors are not only a great way to serve up some sweets, but the kids will have fun playing with them after they’re empty.
While this one was created for Father’s Day, this type of mini album is a great way to get kids involved in scrapbooking and paper craft projects. Letting them write their own journaling not only captures moments, it’s awesome to read it years down the road.
Our 4×4 Photo Sleeves make for the perfect DIY Tic Tac Toe Game Board for any occasion. Simply fill the pockets with your favorite patterned paper and the die cut some 4×4 X’s and O’s with an electronic die cutting machine and place some repositionable adhesive on the back.
Photo props add a fun atmosphere to any party, event, or boring summer day. =) And We R patterned paper makes your photo props even more fun!
Make your own Bingo Game by cutting markers with our Shape Dies. You can create a themed bingo game, or use basic shapes like circles, squares, or stars.
Get ready for the Holidays by making a Mini Thankful Book that the kids can write in. Our 123 Punch Board makes perfect mini file folders that would work well for this project!
Countdowns are super fun for kids, and help them keep track of dates they’re looking forward to. This Christmas Countdown was made with our Candy Box Punch Board. Simply swap out whichever patterned papers fit with your theme.
Get the kids in the kitchen with a fun food craft–Hot Cocoa In A Bag. Fill food grade cellophane bags with hot cocoa mix, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows, then top them off with a folded 4×6 journaling card and some die cuts.
While some of these ideas may be seasonal, you can adapt most of them to fit any time of year. Try these crafts out with your kids or grandkids to beat summer boredom!
