Painting canvases, creating beaded jewelry and tie-dying T-shirts are some examples of easy crafts for kids. Different crafts in a variety of interest areas for children are listed at many websites, including Disney, Parents, and PBS.
Painting is a craft that even the youngest children enjoy. Watercolor or acrylic paints are best for children due to the quick drying time and easy clean-up. Jewelry-making is a craft that is better suited for children a little older, who have good fine motor skills and the patience to thread beads and tie knots. Tie-dying T-shirts can be done by any age and is a great family activity. It is easy to find complete kits at a craft store.
