Do you have any kid friendly crafts?

There are the plaster sculptures at Walmart that can be painted by children.
There is a knitting loom of sorts they can use to make potholders.

Anyone else have any ideas?

I love paper crafts for kids! Like things with construction paper. The adult can cut out a turkey, a snowflake, a heart... whatever and give the child markers, glitter glue, etc. to decorate it. These kinds of projects are affordable and really easy to display as well! They can be put on the wall or a bulletin board, or even hung from the ceiling for a really cool effect!!

Luke and I do all kinds of stuff to keep him busy. He love to use the foam stickers from the store. I get them at Hobby Lobby or the Dollar store most of the time. He loves to use water paint to paint. He is only 3 so I am limited to what I can can do with him right now. But for the most part we do paint, coloring, cutting paper & stickers stuff like that.

I just bought some shrinky dinks and so we are going to draw on our sheets then I will do the oven part . They were really quite cheap because they are just the plain sheets of shrink plastic and then the kids can draw on them with markers or colored pencils and watch them shrink in the oven . I think they were 3.50 for 12 sheets .
