Kids Craft Ideas Made Easy

Welcome to Kids Craft Ideas! Here you'll find plenty of different ideas to create wonderful memories and gifts with your children - for free!

Children love being creative and we will show you how easy it can be to support them in creating something special. Often, we don't have as much time as parents as we would like to - at Kids Craft Ideas we offer simple projects that are fun to make and often don't need much time to prepare.

You can now also add YOUR Kids Craft Ideas and share them with our readers! It's as easy as writing an e-mail!

You don't want to spend hours preparing or buying resources to start crafting with you kids? Here you'll find many ideas that don't require you to spend a lot of money - only use what you've got at home anyway! For a lot of our projects you just need paper, glue and scissors - stuff that most of us have at home, anyway!

We aim to give you easy to follow, step by step instructions so that the focus remains on the fun of crafting! At the start of each project you will find a list with all the things needed - a lot of the time this will be material already in your house.

A few saftey tips as well by Kids Craft Ideas:

  • when buying materials always make sure that they are safe for children to use
  • most projects require you to supervise and support the children working on the projects - make sure they don't swallow small items or cut themselves with scissors
  • cover work surfaces with old newspaper to avoid glue, paint etc to stain your furniture
  • get an apron for the kids or make them wear old clothes


We will reguarly add new ideas and activities so keep looking out for those. You can also keep up-to-date by following our blog or our Facebook page!

Enjoy crafting with your kids!

If I had my child to raise over again,

I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less.

I'd do less correcting, and more connecting.

I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.

I would care to know less, and know to care more.

I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.

I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.

I'd run through more fields, and gaze at more stars.

I'd do more hugging, and less tugging.

I would be firm less often, and affirm much more.

I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.

I'd teach less about the love of power,

And more about the power of love.

It matters not whether my child is big or small,

From this day forth, I'll cherish it all.
