47 Super Creative Creative Crafts for Kids

When I was in grade school, I was taught by my art teacher different kinds of art and DIY crafts. I can still remember making DIY crafts at home (which I learned from school) and (tried) selling it to our neighbors. But, I noticed that kids these days do not have the same interest we have back then. They now spend more time watching TV or playing gadgets. If you’re one of the parents who want to spend time with your child doing arts and don’t want them to be spending their free time using gadgets, here are 60 fun activities that you and your kid(s) can try.

Parents and children who engage in activities like arts and crafts create a unique bonding experience which creates lifelong memories. Also, arts teaches children how to interpret, criticize, and use visual information, and how to make choices based on it.

If those reasons are not yet enough, here is another one – they are simply too cute to miss these experiences!

So, which one will you start with your kid?
