- 1 of 10
Pull out that overflowing button box and some thin ribbon or cord and let your kids thread together the designs of their choosing into cute button bracelets.
Pipe Cleaner Flowers
Show your child how to transform colorful pipe cleaners into a fun springtime bouquet by forming twists and loops for the blooms and attaching them to green pipe-cleaner "stems." Tie with a pretty ribbon or place in a container to use as a dinner-table flower centerpiece or give as a gift to Grandma.
Stained Glass Kites
Perfect for a team of older and younger siblings, this project turns tissue paper squares into faux stained glass. An older child (or you) can create the kite "frame" out of construction paper and clear contact paper, while little ones can fill in the mosaic. Add a ribbon or string tail with construction paper flags and hang on a window for the whole family to enjoy.
Pool Noodle Spiders
Who knew slices of pool noodles or pot scrubs could be so cute? Even tiny tots can decorate these pool noodle spiders with the sticky dots and googley eyes, and pipe cleaner legs are easy to attach with just a little help from mom or dad.
