Crafts For Kids
This page contains thrifty, do it yourself, educational craft projects for kids.
Felt Popsicle Color Matching Game
These cute felt Popsicles are a great tool for teaching your toddler their colors. They also work well for pretend play!
Geometry Bird Project
My son recently had to make a sculpture using geometric shapes for his middle school geometry class. It turned out really cute and could easily be the start for a fun crafting project.
Make apple stamps from a real apple and teach your child about the letter A.
Toddler Pom Pom Sorter
I am always looking for activities to keep my toddler busy. This pom pom sorter is simple and stuffing the pom poms into the holes is great for working on fine motor skills. You can even color around each hole and turn it into a color match game!
Growing up, you hear that every snowflake is unique. Whether this is true or not, this craft is perfect for demonstrating that. No matter how many times you do this craft, each flake looks different from the previous one. Kids of all ages have fun creating these symmetric patterns.
Christmas Sticker Memory Game
Children love to be a part of everything! And with this game, they can choose their own stickers and create their own cards to play with! It will be more exciting to play a game they made. It can be tailored for individual or small group play and for Pre-K and up.
Kids Abacus for Learning
An easy and educational learning tool for kids learning their name, numbers, and alphabet. Made with soft felt and pipe cleaners perfect to bring on the go and fits in your child's hand. As you can see it got a lot of usage from the bent pipe cleaners!
Bee 1:1 Correspondence Math Game
Kids love to learn about insects, even the ones who are afraid of them! It is a very popular pre-k theme that tends to stick around longer than other themes. And bees are the most fascinating to study. A simple, yet educational game, is this bee 1:1 game.
Painted Lego Math
Kids learn best through hands-on activities. Any new material that is introduced needs to be presented concretely, prior to any abstract learning. A fun way to teach math skills is with Legos and paint! I have included examples of counting, addition, and multiplication for beginners.
Insect Stamping Activities
Every theme and holiday, I would incorporate new materials into my Pre-k classroom. The art center was definitely the easiest because just about anything can be used in art. One my students' favorite items to pull out were the stamps. I always kept numbers, letters, shapes, and other popular pieces for them to use.
Spring Flowers Fine Motor Coloring and Velcro Activity
This activity is very simple for younger children. They can help make it by coloring the picture and adding the Velcro. In the classroom, it is a perfect spring addition to the manipulative or quiet centers. As children move the bees and butterflies around the flower pot, they strengthen the small muscles in their hands.
This is a fun, quick, and free educational project that is perfect for kids who are learning their alphabet. Especially if you have a child who loves dump trucks, you can make learning the alphabet fun and as your child advances, you can start learning simple 3 letter words and progress from that!
Making a Backyard Tipi (Teepee)
We are homeschooling our daughter, who will be in second grade this year and studying American history. She will of course be learning about Native Americans. One of the projects we would like to do this year would be to construct a Plains style dwelling in the yard, a tipi (or teepee).
