Easy Crafts For Kids
Free Craft Activities For Fun

Easy crafts for kids are a fantastic way to have fun together. We've got lots of free crafts for kids as well as free origami and scrapbooking paper so you can make beautiful things.

We've got lots of fun activities for kids to suit all ages, starting with my daughter Catherine showing off her feather headdress.

You'll see our free crafts for kids activities start young at the top of the page and get older until we end up building homeschool robots!

I'll keep adding more homeschooling easy kids crafts activities so come back and check again soon. But the best thing would be for YOU to tell us about your favorite kids crafts activity.

You can include 'how to' instructions and tell us your crafty tips as well as your kids favorite part. If we can share ideas it'll make this all a lot more fun for everyone.

Wikipedia has this interesting definition of the word craft:

'To describe something as a craft is to describe it as lying somewhere between an art (which relies on talent) and a science (which relies on knowledge).'

There are lots more fun kids craft activities, including making leaf prints and cooking homeschool chocolate fudge, in our page on craft ideas. You'll also see some great easy outdoor crafts, like animal tracking and learning how to start a fire, which help you pass on the greatest free gift of all - a love of nature.

There's no doubt our easy crafts for kids activities will stretch your children's talents and throw in some science at the same time! Most of all, we guarantee you'll have fun.
