While the kids are home this Spring Break, stimulate their minds by inspiring them with fun, creative projects that'll keep them occupied for hours!
We've done the heavy lifting and rounded up some of the best craft projects for kids to dive into while on vacation this year.
Top of the list is this Monster Paper Bag Puppet
for the Kindergarten set using a paper bag, Apple Barrel Paints
and a bit of quirky monster flair.
Building and painting this DIY Marshmallow Launcher
could help your kids learn new creative skills, work independently, and most importantly, gain confidence!
What better way to get rid of excess energy than making and playing the Balloon Paddle Game
?! Grab these instructions and get them ready to perfect their target practice!
For a more relaxing activity, try making new memories as a family with this Family Name Word Art
project to stir your kid's creativity, instill family pride and help give them a sense of belonging. Natalie at Doodlecraft used Scrabble Tiles, Apple Barrel Paints
and other easy to find items to create a DIY family heirloom.
Family Craft Night with Cathie & Steve
always delivers an excellent selection of crafts to do with your kids and we particularly love this episode which features everything from bubble wrap painting to paint marbling for endless fun!
And if you have scrap wooden blocks in various sizes from a previous project or pick up wooden blanks from your local hardware store, this puzzle-like Wood Blocks projec
t requires equal parts creativity and function to make as many things their imaginations will allow.
We hope Spring Break will be that much more fun and productive with the kids using one or more of these projects! If they've attempted one of these, be sure to share with us on social using #PlaidCrafts.
