Kids crafts

I do crafts for the kids at church once a month and this is meant to be a visual reminder of what I’ve made so that I can use them again without making myself bald scratching my head for ideas:)

  1. Thank you Liz, this is such a good idea, to log all the craft you do

  2. Wow, there’s a lot of craft ideas here! I love how simple they all are. I especially like the idea of foam magnents, you could really do a lot with those. Plus of course how fun is it to put something on the fridge for everyone to see?

    Very cute, thank you for sharing!

  3. Thanks, Kara. Yes, fun foam magnets are great because the fun foam is so light it doesn’t slide off the fridge! I’ve made little houses and stuff like that with it too. And I discovered last week that you can buy fun foam in Hobbycraft which is already backed with a magnet!

    I have to make them simple because the kids can range from anything between 2 to almost teenage, and they have to be quick to make, yet capable of taking a long time as well, because we do them before church to keep the kids occupied and some turn up with 20 minutes to go and others with only 5 minutes!
