Just looking to get some new ideas for craft projects for the little ones. What do you like to do for crafts with your children and what kind of art/craft supplies do you have or want?

  • Get some pasta to make necklaces. You can dye it. Soak it in rubbing alcohol with food coloring. Great for hand eye coordination.

    Or use anything, cereal, paper, pasta, cotton balls....etc and glue them to make a letter of the day. Draw a big block letter on a piece of paper and have them decorate the letter.

    Anyting they have to cut, cut lines or whatever. Cut pieces of paper and have them glue it to something else. Also great for their fine motor skills.

    Coloring books. Painting.

    Get a cheep bottle of shaving cream and draw and play in it on a table. Awesome to write in with your fingers or to just let them play in. Awesome sensory activity.
