Using Everyday Household Items for Crafts

June 15, 2010

tissue paper flowersInstead of going out to Jo-Ann Fabric's to buy things for children's crafts, use some everyday items like aluminum foil and tissue paper.

The aluminum foil, when wrapped tightly will stay in the position you put it in. The kids will love to make their own sculptures by molding the foil into dinosaurs and sea creatures.

With the tissue paper, little children can make flowers by scrunching the paper up and wrapping tape around the end or "stem". They will then have colorful flowers to play with!

Bring these two items out for parties and get-togethers and the kids will spend hours sitting at the kitchen table seeing what they can make.
