Crafts for kids

I thought it would be a good idea to do a round up of all my crafts for kids posts so they are in one place and are easy to find if you are looking for an idea for doing something crafty with the kids. I like to give the girls a few more structured activities every so often. I like open ended play the most as they control what they do but I think sometimes it is nice to have an end product in mind before you start – especially if it is for a present.

I like crafts for kids which are quick and simple to set up and which don’t cost too much – preferably you will have the things you already need. I don’t mind a bit of mess myself and really what’s the fun of a craft activity where you don’t get a bit messy – so sorry if you prefer things a bit neater!
