Kids Craft Ideas

Most of the step-by-steps you'll find here are for primary school age children (5+), though many can be adapted for younger kids. Some will be more challenging, with new techniques like making slots, and you're always going to be the best judge of how much help your child needs. There will often be cutting involved which should be supervised - some of it may be quite tricky, but remember, the more you let them do, the better they'll get. Practice really does make perfect!

A pile of cardboard packaging means endless possibilities, but this kind of craft isn't an exact science - packaging varies, so it's important not to worry if, say, your egg box looks different from the picture. Be ready to adapt and work with what you've got.  Make do. This really is the fun part - putting your own personal spin on projects.

I'm going to list all my step-by-steps here on this page, so hopefully you'll easily be able to find the ones you want.

Happy crafting!
