Fun And Creative Handmade Crafts You Can Make With Your Kids

Children just love making things with their own hands. We would like to share 15 hand-crafted items with you that are easy to make yet still very attractive.

A colorful apron

Carve some hearts out of clay, then press down so you’re left with your fingerprints on them. Make a small hole for a keyring, and put the almost-ready pendants in the oven. You can paint it in whatever color you want afterwards.

A great idea your kids will love to try

Handmade projects for kids6

Just fix one end of a piece of wire onto a keyring, let your kid put beads on it. Then fix the other end tightly. Originally, a pipe cleaner was used instead of wire.

Ask your kid to draw something on a piece of tissue paper and then fix it in a candle with a hair dryer. Also, you can just make a drawing on the candle itself with a marker, but this kind of picture won’t stay on as easily.
