This is a very quick post to WELCOME new AND old readers back to Red Ted Art. Those familiar with the site and my work already, know that I have well over 2500 craft articles at your finger tips right now……. but they MAY be hard to find.
So I am pointing you to the following places.
If I notice particular pages being SUPER popular, I will update this page etc with latest info, so you can also find it (ironically TP Roll Craft ideas are already trending..).
YOUTUBE – ideally 8-12yrs
Though it is better for me (long story) if you visit my crafts on this website, this YouTube playlist is for YOUR KIDS to try and work on more or less (!!) by themselves with relatively straight forward supplies. Great EDUCATIONAL Screen Time with a break(ish) for you!
I created this list after my brother who is now in lock down with THREE BOYS asked for it… good luck, bro.
Ages: 8-12yrs (younger kids can do it with parental help)
Supplies needed (depending on video): Paper, Stationary, Needle & Thread + recycled materials, Wool, recycled materials or other items from around the house (e.g. make some salt dough etc).
I picked my easiest/ most popular projects.. and the ideas is.. you take a look either make it as it is, or adapt it to YOUR INTERESTS! One video = 10s of variations.
With the sewing projects, the ideas is that you START THEM off, but help them here and there. Once kids get the hang of sewing, they can keep busy for AGES!!!! Same goes for finger knitting (and normal knitting!).
PRESCHOOLERS/ Under 5s
On the menu browser, I have a Preschool Crafts Page. This has all my “collections” of ideas for preschoolers – Mother’s Day or Easter. I rotate these around to make the most seasonal go to the top. But this is a great way to start browsing ideas.
