Kids Crafts 101 – 14 Gorgeous Kids Craft Ideas for Any Time Any Day!

| | |

Welcome! Today we kick off a very special two weeks of crafty fun for you, our Kids Crafts 101. I got together with a total of 14 WONDERFUL Crafty Bloggers from around the world, to bring you daily crafty inspiration – the brief for our ideas was simple: make it fun, make it for kids and make it using “standard crafty materials” – i.e. the sort of things you should have in your basic craft box and recycling box – TP Roll Tubes (of course), Egg Cartons, Paper, Paint, Scrap Fabrics, Scissors, Glue etc. So come what may – be it a Snow Day,  a rainy day.. or simple one of those loooong long Summer afternoons and you need a lovely craft for you and the kids, then come back to this set of fantastic crafts to browse and be inspired by.

Kids Crafts 101 - need something to do with the kids Let our 14 Every Day Projects inspire you!

But… we are NOT sharing these crafts with you ALL AT ONCE. We are bring you one day.. I encourage you to come back each day and see what lovely new every day craft we have for you.
