The BIG List of Fun Crafts for Kids
Crafting is so much fun, but sometimes they can be super messy. I used to cringe when my kids would mention crafts. But now I have find joy in crafting with my kids. These crafts are perfect for boys and girls. I have compiled a list of some of my kids and their friends favorite crafts.
Fun Crafts for Toddlers
Most of the crafts in this age group are simple crafts like puzzles or coloring books. One of my kids favorite crafts at this age was the water drawing mat. This is a fun, mess free craft to keep those little ones busy.
Kinetic sand is a great activity for kids as well. It is perfect for those struggling with sensory issues. I really like kinetic sand because it is mess free but a lot like play-doh.

Fun Crafts for School Aged Kids
My little girl started to LOVE crafts around this age. She wants to do them everyday. I find at this age they are pretty self sufficient and their crafts become less messy. One of my favorite gifts my daughter received was the Enchanted Fairy Garden. It was so fun to watch the garden grow all while she created a story abut the fairies living inside it.
My kids love to create projects. They love to hang up the end result and feel like they accomplished something to add to their rooms.
