5 Fun Arts and Crafts Projects For Kids

Is your little one feeling bored and cooped up? It can be challenging to keep kids entertained while they're stuck at home, but there's no need to worry. Here are five fun arts and crafts projects you can do with your child. Not only will they help keep the boredom away, but they'll also give your kid a chance to get creative and explore their artistic side.

1. Colouring books

Colouring books are a great way for young children to express themselves and practice fine motor skills. You can find lots of free colouring sheets online. All you need then are some wax crayons, pencils or felt pens from your local arts and craft store. Alternatively, if you have a tablet device, you can download apps that allow your child to colour virtually on a computer or tablet.

2. Paper Mache

Paper mache is a great activity for older kids who want to make something more complex than colouring sheets. All you need is some paper, glue, water and paint, and you have everything you need for a fun afternoon of crafting.

3. DIY Jewellery

Making jewellery out of beads is another great way for kids to learn about colours, shapes, counting and sorting. Stringing beads together is also an excellent way for them to practice hand-eye coordination while creating something beautiful at the same time.

4. Clay Sculpting

Working with clay can be a very therapeutic experience for both adults and children alike, as it allows them to express their creativity freely through sculpture and moulding. If you don't want the mess of clay in your house, you could always try air dry clay instead, which won't leave behind any sticky residue.

5. Painting

Painting is another fun activity that you can do with your kid at home without having to buy any special materials or supplies. You just need to grab some paper or cardboard (or even just use some old newspaper!) and some paints from the craft store and let them go wild.


Arts and crafts are a fantastic way for parents to bond with their children while helping them develop important skills like problem-solving, fine motor skills, creativity, hand-eye coordination, counting, sorting and colour recognition. So why not try out one of these five arts and crafts projects with your child today? They'll love it—and so will you. Contact your local arts and crafts store today for more info and ideas.
