Easy, Inexpensive Crafts for Children
Inexpensive crafts can keep your grandchildren busy on a rainy day so before we took our annual family vacation to the beach my daughter went to the local Dollar Tree and purchased some crafts we could do with the kids. Each craft was $1.00 plus tax. You just can’t get much cheaper than that! We had lots of sunshine while we were at Gulf Shores, Alabama but we did have two days of rain and I was so glad she thought to bring these crafts.
These were designed with young children in mind but even our older granddaughter enjoyed helping the little ones make their crafts.
This is my daughter showing them what they are about to create.
The stick on jewels can and do come off. If you have a grandchild who is at the stage where they put things in their mouth then they are too young for this craft! I learned this the hard way! Years ago my oldest granddaughter put one of these jewels up her nose. It required a visit to the pediatrician to get it out. Not a fun experience!
Here they are working on their bracelets and putting the sticky jewels on them. Can you tell how hard they are concentrating? They loved decorating them and managed to decorate a few other things in the house with them as well!
This is my daughter fitting the super hero mask on her niece. This craft was by far the favorite and most popular.
Are these not the cutest little Super Heroes you have ever seen? We went to the movies after this and they insisted on wearing their masks to the theater. I wish I had thought to get material for capes but I didn’t. However if you get this for your grandchild that would be a fun addition!
Our family loves fooling around with the Boomerang App. If you haven’t played with it, its a lot of fun. Anyway, we asked Chandler to do his best Ninja move and then we recorded it on Boomerang. This is the result!
Hope you have a great week and hope you will link up and leave a comment! This is a #bloghop!
