Today I am going to share 5 easy, fun and low-maintenance craft activities to do with children. Abigail and I love crafting together. It’s a great way to get creative and bond at the same time. If you need some unique ideas, I’ve got the perfect list for you. Without further ado, let’s get into it!
1.) Paint By Sticker
As you can see below, Paint By Sticker is a brand that allows children to create masterpieces, one sticker at a time. They need to pair the corresponding sticker to the number on the image below. The girl in the colourful dress is one we did together. Abigail likes to peel and place them in the correct order by matching the numbers. It’s a lot of fun and your child will be truly happy with the end result. There are lots of books in this series. Purchase a copy here.
For more mature artists, you can order Paint by Sticker for adults. As you can see below, I assembled the 3D sunflower image. It took me a long time, but I love how it turned out. Get yourself a copy here.
2.) Pom Pom Art
This was such an adorable and fun craft to do with Abigail. It’s not messy or difficult. All you have to do is put the pom poms in the holes and enjoy your masterpiece! The kit we ordered had three different designs in them, with string to hang up afterwards, which I did. How cute is the lion? I would recommend this craft for ages 3+. Order a box here.
3.) Foam Dress-Up Dolls
This is Abigail’s favourite craft activity, hands down. Foam dress-up dolls are really cheap and easy to find. You can get a packet for less than $5 (see here) and have hours of fun. We love mix and matching their clothes, hairstyles and accessories together. Grab a bag the next time you have a long car trip coming up. You won’t regret it!
4.) Felt Kits
Similar to the foam dress-up dolls, felt kits are cheap and easy to get. I got mine at a local discount store. Check out the one we made together here. You can create so many things with this soft material. Highly recommend.
5.) Paper Plate Packs
Last, but certainly not least, we have foam paper plate packs. You can buy these in lots of different designs. As you can see below, you are given a paper plate and a bunch of foam stickers that you need to press on, in order to create your image. Abigail and I made a bunch and stuck them up around her arts and craft corner. I also found these at my local discount store. Order a similar activity here.
Thank you so much for reading! Please leave more creative and fun craft ideas below. I am always looking for new ones. I will definitely post a Part 2 in the future.
Peace & Love xoxo
