Take a look at some amazing paper crafts to keep kids busy. Absolutely creative and fun packed activity ideas for play dates or parents-kids bonding!

It’s art and craft day today and I have got 10 interesting craft ideas for kids. If it’s raining or too cold (or hot) to step out, and you have run out of ideas for kids activities, then don’t you worry. Children can still have fun and make awesome memories by getting involved in DIY crafts or artwork that helps them unleash their creative side.  

Paper is an easily accessible tool for art and craft. Whether it is a used one or an outdated newspaper or perhaps a tissue paper, you can use them all to wrap gifts, make small Christmas tree decorations and DIY greeting cards. Kids love these things. On special occasions or even otherwise, brainstorm/ideate with them on DIY gift ideas that can be created by them (with your help). Give them time to think and let them take the ownership. It gives them a sense of responsibility and confidence that they have created something of their own. 

So folks! Have fun with paper 🙂

      • Ooogh! I don’t know about that. I was drawn to the post because when we had a bunch of kiddies round recently (oldest 6) I was scouring the net for some games we could play, or indeed crafts and even though I liked them I concluded that these generally would have been too mature for them right now.
