To write down all your adventures. To paste all your pictures and everything you want to keep as a memento You need cardboard, wrap paper, some ribbon and fill it up with drawing paper attached to each other with a few clamps. Put it inside with double-sided tape, also used to stick the wrapping paper on the cardboard.

8. School drawing holder

You probably can imagen how much school drawing went by over the years. At first my own 6 through nursery school, and now my babysitting children. That brought me to this idea, a school drawing holder. Cardboard, with WCrol with felt glued around it. Before gluing the felt, we have sewn buttons on it for decoration. At least, the children learned how to sew a button!

7. Spacious Painting, real Kids Art

Paint the egg tray and then cut the rolls in different sizes, and paint them too. Put them together with a glue gun. Attach a ribbon, and finished!

5. Pampering the Birds

For this you need the lower half of a milk carton, attach on the 4 corners thin wire. Let the kids stringing peanuts and tie them together with a loop on top, so you can hang it in a tree.

Make some holes in the milk carton and stick a few twigs and leaves in it for decoration. Fill up the carton with seeds.

4. Pop-up-poP

This idea is from a 6-year-old, he came up with it! I want to make a surprise puppet, but I don’t know how. Can you please help me? Sometimes kids put you in the middle of your creative “think tank”,  they just expect you to come up with an idea!

For this, you need a  bottom removed pet bottle, a stick, an old stocking and some cloth and tread.

Bind the stocking on the stick, fill the head with anything, put the stick through the pet bottle and the stocking around it, that the base.

3. Bow & Arrow

This creative crafting idea is from one of the children,  he wanted to make an arrow and bow. So we went together into the garden and cut some suitable branches. Searched a few fethers and a row and made his wish come thru.

But that wasn’t enough, he needed a socket too. Luckily we found an empty Pringle bus, and with a few ajustments, he could go off to hunt.

2. Paper Treasure Box

Today we are gone make a paper box, I drew the pattern of the box on my computer and the children gave me their favorite pictures for the surfaces. After we printed them out, we glued the pattern on heavy cardboard. Then cut it out and fold it into a box.

1. Color with wool

Double-sided tape is so handy when you are crafting.

In this case, we used it to color with wool. Print a picture, tape it with double-sided tape and stick the little pieces of wool on it.

This  cool drawing idea has a remarkable effect.

  1. Wow. Can’t believe how MANY ideas you have here. This could keep kids busy for YEARS!

    I still have hanging on our bedroom walls the “greatest hits” of our kids art through the years. As the years go by I actually see more in them than I did at first. Little geniuses!
