Hello! My name is Christine Marshall and I am the one behind Kids Craft Ideas. Together with my technology-savvy husband Mark I've created this site. We hope to put lots of useful, easy to follow and inexpensive kids craft ideas online for you to enjoy with your kids.
A bit more about me: I am a trained languages teacher with seven years of teaching experience at different schools in England, UK. I really enjoy working with children, creating all kinds of tasks for them.
I'm enjoying the privilege of being at home with our sons Alex and Lukas. It is a different kind of challenge to look after two little boys rather than 30 students in a classroom but I am thoroughly enjoying it!
Chasing after two energetic boys is the reason things have slowed down a little bit and I am not updating the website as often as I used to or would like to.
The ideas that you can find on our website are sometimes things that I made with my own mum a long time ago and sometimes things that I am just discovering myself. They are aimed at kids of all ages, starting from toddler to secondary school kids. It's amazing to see how happy it makes them to show their craft activities to their father, or really anyone, once they have finished. And with a little - or a lot of - help, they are able to make quite a few things themselves as well.
Crafting has always been a big part of my life and I love the opportunity to pass some of the ideas on! So hopefully you will find something on our site that you and your children enjoy making together!
