If your kids are particularly creative they’ll also enjoy getting to make or use their very own custom stickers. Which they’ll enjoy showing off to all of their school friends.
Scrapbooking is a great craft for the whole family to enjoy together as you’ll be able to create special scrapbooks such as a vacation scrapbook which you’ll be able to decorate as a family and use to display all of your favorite vacation photos. As an example, you may want to use stickers and stamps in order to decorate the pages of a scrapbook. Especially as your kids will have a lot of fun choosing which stickers they’d like to use and where they’d like to place them on your scrapbook pages.
Other examples of items which you may want to use in order to decorate your scrapbooks include ribbons, glitter, paint and small decorative embellishments. Remember when it comes to scrapbooking you’re only limited by your own imagination.
Imagine how much fun your kids will have creating homemade tie dye t-shirts, sneakers, mugs and plates. Simply create your tie dye mixture in a large bucket which you’ll be able to dip different types of white items into. Make sure to gently slide each item into your tie dye mixture and to hold each item in your tie dye mixture for 10 seconds. Before pulling your items out of your bucket and letting them dry for several hours.
Do you remember using a balloon, glue, water and strips of old newspapers in order to create paper mâché creatures as a kid? If you don’t know where to start you can never go wrong creating a piggy bank using a paper mâché technique. Just be sure to purchase some pink paint so that you’ll be able to paint your completed project pink.
However, if your kids have their own favorite animals you can turn a paper mâché circle into just about any animal. By placing a tail or some well positioned ears on your paper mâché creature. Alternatively you can even paint a globe onto your paper mâché base.
Did you know that your kids will be able to create their very own homemade stamps out of potatoes? One of the reasons why stamping is such a fun family friendly craft is that you’ll be able to use stamps to decorate fabrics such as empty cushion covers.
