Homemade Crafts for Kids
Fun, easy crafts and activities for kids of all ages using everyday items like beads, paint, bubbles and more
2-5 years: Make a stamp pad by dampening a sponge with paint and placing it on a plate. Then give your child textured objects—such as blocks, pinecones, foam shapes—to press into the sponge and stamp onto paper. Even more fun: Make giant foam stamps your kids can use to decorate a bedroom or playroom wall!
5-8 years: Have your child use a rubber stamp to imprint each letter of the alphabet on a set of smooth stones or unpainted building blocks. Now he can practice his spelling words by “building” them, or use the blocks as “place cards” at the family table.
8-12 years: Older kids can use alphabet stamps to make personalized note cards, stationery, book covers, and school binders with their monogram.
