In a world dominated by screens, art and craft projects offer a breath of fresh air for our kids' creativity. Here are a few ideas to inspire your art and craft projects with your kids.

Paper Collage Adventures:

Get ready to bring together scissors, glue, and a variety of colorful papers. Encourage your kids to cut out different shapes, patterns, and pictures from magazines, or even scraps of wrapping paper. They can then arrange and glue them onto a larger piece of paper or cardboard to create their own artwork. It's a fun playdate activity.


Play-Doh allows your kids to sculpt, shape, and create to their heart's content, fostering creativity and fine motor skills. From molding animals to crafting miniature worlds, Play-Doh offers endless possibilities. 

Nature-inspired Art:

Step outside and collect leaves, flowers, and twigs during a nature walk. Use them to create prints or make nature-inspired collages. Your kids can even create their own nature journals, where they can sketch and document their outdoor discoveries. This not only encourages creativity but also fosters a deeper connection with the natural world.

DIY Crafts with Recyclables:

Teach your kids the value of recycling and repurposing by engaging them in fun DIY crafts using everyday household items. From creating robots out of cardboard boxes to turning plastic bottles into colorful planters, the possibilities are endless. 

Sensory Art Exploration:

Engage your kids' senses with sensory art projects that combine texture, color, and imagination. Set up a messy play area where they can experiment with finger painting, or create textured artwork using various materials. Additionally, encourage them to create heartfelt homemade gifts for their friends or family members.

Artwork Keepsakes:

Our team also loves Plum Print (, an amazing company that turns your kid's art into beautiful coffee table books. You send them all your child's artwork in a box, and they work their magic, preserving their creations for years to come. You can even write a note with each picture. It's a precious keepsake that your children will treasure forever.
