I can just imagine that your kids are as frequently board as mine. I came up with this easy crafts for kids 2 weeks ago and they were cutting color paper since then. They have created a colorful collection of different kind of animals and not only animal shapes, some art has creative background with more of decorative elements. The best part is that you can use the same technique for different occasions and kids will never get tired of it as it always looks different to them. We just need to show them a way of doing things and their imagination will do its job and encourage their own creations. I have started with 3 designs only. I have prepared a pink rabbit, brown owl, and black penguin. Kids added, a cat, another rabbit, bears, then a puppy, cow, and then they switched to foods and houses and kitchen with a cook and all kitchen equipment.
Kids with good cutting skills didn’t need any help obviously, those who had some difficulties came up with an idea to trace shapes from my template first and then cut it from the paper. Only kids younger than 6 years would need further support and tracing the curvy lines will be still quite difficult for them. I suggest to cut all of the shapes for them and let them have fun with glue only. Another thing is eyes for the creatures, you could use googly eyes from the dollar store or (which makes a better effect, in my opinion) simply cut them off from black paper. Eather way will make kids happy!
Please feel free to copy my designs of easy crafts for kids. Later on, kids can use them to decorate their rooms or to give it as a gift to grandparents or parents. There is always so many occasions in the year and kids are always so happy to have a gift for their loved ones.
