Arts and crafts can be enjoyed by both children and adults. Whether you’re super creative or not, getting into arts and crafts is a great way to work with your hands, let your imagination soar, and relax as you forget about your other responsibilities for a while.

In addition to the activities you can find on sites like, arts and crafts are a great way to interact with your children. So if you want to enjoy projects with your kids, there are plenty of options to choose from, some of which are listed below.

There are so many seasonal craft ideas around for all the occasions and holidays but here some trusty favourites that work well all year round and are a great way to enjoy quality time together with kids.


For a fun twist on painting why not try Mirror Painting or Potato Masher Painting. These process art activities are lots of fun, it doesn’t matter too much about the end result – the fun is in the doing!

Baking with kids is always a hit, why not try this healthy Apple Biscuit Recipe. If you want to get more creative, you can decorate them afterwards.

To sneak in some learning when crafting with your little ones why not try these Shape Art ideas.

Sun catchers are always a hit with my kids! Why not try these butterfly and bird ones

We also love Junk modelling because of the freedom it gives for the kids to use their imagination and create just about anything! Plus its totally free since you’re using up left overs from your recycling bin

For a fun calming activity why not make these Glitter Sensory bottles together.

You can’t go wrong with paper plate crafts. This Paper plate sunflower is one of our favourites!

After making these DIY games you can have even more fun playing them together

And finally, what about these fun and colourful Tissue butterflies. They are so fun to make and brighten up the house at any time of year.
