Paper Cup and String TelephoneThis craft I'm going to demonstrate is something that we used to play with back in the days when the internet and gadgets did not exist. As quarantine days extend, let's find ways to teach kids simple crafts to cheer them up and make them active instead of exposing them too much to gadgets.
Big Soap BubblesSo I know winter is approaching and these aren't really typical to see at this time of year, but you can use them inside too! You just have to be prepared to clean up a little bit of a mess:)
Lego Minifig Toothpaste CapHere is a fun and cute craft to make with your toothpaste cap. Most caps look like this and have a 'bow' in the back. After you draw on it, put it back on the tube or use as finger puppet ! :)
Rocking Paper BirdThis one is a cute craft you can teach your kids to make to release the boredom from being stuck at home. Find colorful papers and make these cute little birds for your young ones.
Plastic Folder AquariumThis craft is a bit time consuming, but if you are that crafty, the result of this project will turn out to be satisfying. Include this in your fun quarantine days to lessen the boredom.
Making an Emoji Cup ToyIt's not that bad staying at home as long as we have plenty of fun things to do. It even helps strengthen our bonds with family members. And since I have kids at home, most activities are more kid friendly.
Cardboard Tube Rainbow BlowerWe are running low on bubble solution, so I thought this would be fun to make as an outdoor alternative, since my daughter loves blowing bubbles. This is easy and free to make (simple supplies I already had from home). When you blow, the tissue papers will fly!
Plastic Egg Match-Up GameDid you put away your plastic Easter eggs? You might want to take them out again! Make this family fun match up game with the help of the plastic Easter eggs.
DIY Foosball Game ShoeboxHere is a fun, foosball game you can make for your kids. What's great is afterwards it is easy to store!
Alligator ClothespinsHere is a way to turn wooden clothes pins into little alligators.
Basketball Toss GameHere is a fun basketball inspired toss game you could make with simple household supplies (empty tissue box, cup, & foil) for your kids to play with.
Making a Fabric OctopusHere is a fun little stuffed animal you could make out of simple supplies. Also, this octopus doubles as an indoor or outdoor toss activity. My daughter isn't good at catching balls, so this is easier for her to catch.
Outdoor Tic Tac Toe GameHere's a fun way to enjoy tic tac toe outdoors made with simple supplies. After the quarantine, this would be a good game to make for parties to keep guests entertained as an option too!
Kids' Award MedalsDo you have little kids at home that you are now homeschooling as well? To spice it up and make outdoor activities fun you could make obstacle courses/games for free time, PE time, and outdoor time. And, to make it more fun, I made these award "medals" for them from plastic coffee lids, some paint, stickers, and ribbon.
Making a Flower CrownIn our household, we like to save cardboard boxes for craft projects or arts and crafts.
Wood Craft Magnetic SticksMy toddler enjoys being nearby when I'm in the kitchen. She likes to play with some magnets that we have on our fridge. I thought it would be fun to make assorted wooden craft stick magnets.
