Fun and easy craft ideas for kids include making a Bagel Birdfeeder and Cereal Jewelry. These crafts take only 10 minutes to make. About.com has a full list of more 10 minutes crafts for kids.
To make a Bagel Birdfeeder, first cut a string about 24 inches long. This length can be adjusted depending on where the feeder is hung. String the bagel through the hole and tie both ends of the string together.
Next, mix 1 tablespoon of peanut butter with 1 tablespoon of shortening and spread the mix on the flat sides of the bagel. Pour some birdseed on a plate and then press the bagel, peanut butter side down, onto the birdseed. Hang the bagel in a tree or outside somewhere and watch the birds feast! This is recommended for children five years old and up.
Cereal Jewelry materials can be taken on the go and this craft is recommended for kids two and up. Lay out a selection of chenille stems and assorted cereals. Simply show the child how to thread the cereal pieces onto the stem and then let them loose. One stem is enough for a bracelet and necklaces can be made by attaching two or more stems.
