There's nothing more fun than a great time spent crafting. Whether you're with friends, family, or creating solo, these awesome and enjoyable crafts will keep kids of all ages entertained. Here are a few of our favorite fun crafts for kiddos of all ages.
Ocean Animal Collage Art
Celebrate the watery wonders of the ocean with this fabulous collage art. For this craft, you’ll need thick and thin cardboard, and supplies found in Kid Made Modern’s Studio In A Box.
First, use a black marker to draw your favorite ocean animals on a thin piece of cardboard. Then, paint them in! Use the watercolor paints found in the Studio In A Box for twelve colorful hues. With a grown-up’s help, use scissors to cut out the animal shapes once they have dried.
Next, it’s time to create your background. Use the Studio In A Box acrylic paints to paint a blue ocean scene onto the thicker piece of cardboard. Once the cardboard has dried, begin to assemble your collage. Take a small square of cardboard and glue it to the center of your background, then glue your animal on top of the small square. This helps it to stand out from the background.
Lastly, decorate your animal with googly eyes, fuzzy sticks, and pom poms for an awesome 3-D effect.
