Crafts for Kids to Do at Home

One thing that the pandemic taught parents is that you need to have ways to keep your kids busy at home.

Crafts are always a great idea, but sometimes you aren’t able to take a quick trip to a craft store to get the materials you want — like when you are on lockdown or you don’t have the money to spend on special craft supplies.

This is why it is important to have common kid craft supplies on hand, and a list of crafts that don’t need any special items to complete.

With this in mind, I’ve made a list of fun craft ideas for kids to make at home with supplies commonly found in your house. To make it on this list, the craft needed to meet this criteria:

  • Use only common kid craft supplies like paper, paint, stickers, pipe cleaners, pom poms, googly eyes, etc. and of course, Mod Podge!
  • Or, use recycling items such as cardboard, newspaper, cans, toilet paper tubes, etc.
  • Or, use things normally found in a home like paper plates, duct tape, wrapping paper, food coloring, etc.
  • It was definitely a bonus if the craft item could be played with after it is made. Keep kids busy longer!

Go ahead and scroll down to see what fun your kids can have with a craft that can be completed at home on the spur of the moment! Let me know in the comments.
