    Summer Craft for kids



    You will find simple craft projects for young children, and ideas that will
    interest older kids.Some activities just take 10 or 15 minutes, others could take hours or days depending on your child's interest.

    Some of the craft projects can get a bit messy, but the kids love these ideas. If you don't want to do all the clean-up, let the kids know before you start that they will be participating in the clean-up too.

    Be sure to encourage your child's creativity. Try not to have expectations of how the finished art work should look..Often a child sees the world from a different point of view. Crafting together gives you a chance to see through your child's eyes.

    If you are working on a craft with a young child, try not to do identical craft projects. If your child is drawing a nature scene, maybe you could draw an apple. Children need time to develop their creative skills without being discouraged by comparisons to adult projects.

    Note for Parents:

    Every parent must use their own judgment in choosing which crafts and activities are safe for their own children. While Creative Kids at Home makes every effort to provide activity ideas that are safe and fun for children it is your responsibility to choose the activities that are safe in your own home.


    If you frequently participate in arts and crafts with your children, then these supplies will make the crafting process quicker and easier.


    When creating with kids, you will notice that most art and craft projects rely on several basic supplies. Having these supplies ready and available can save valuable time and make the creative process much easier. Having a handy arts and craft kit nearby is great to have for last minute crafting creations to entertain those rambunctious children.

    * glue sticks
    * safety scissors

    CRAFT WITH SEEDS AND NUT SHELLS

    [FONT=&quot]
    [/FONT]

    Place 1/4 to 1/2 cup water in small cups. Add a TBS of vinegar, and several drops of food coloring to the cups. Allow the dried seeds to soak in the colored water for 2 to 4 hours, then remove them from the water & allow them to dry over night. You then have a colorful, natural, free, craft item. You can make mosaics or necklaces with them. Some will dye a solid color & others will be speckled. Use a nice heavy paper like poster board or card stock to glue the mosaics to.
