Kindergarten Activities: Easy Paper Crafts For Kids
The best kindergarten activities we've done involve paper crafts for kids.
One of the most exciting things my children William and Catherine enjoyed was
making something which actually moved!
Once you added a homeschool
dinosaur into the equation things got really thrilling!
Paper crafts for kids are easy and you can adapt them to the age of your kids.
Obviously, the younger they are they'll need more help from you, but
there are so many ways to make homeschooling paper crafts fun.
You'll end up
with something which takes pictures into another dimension!
I'll start by showing you how we used easy kids crafts to make this homeschool kindergarten dinosaur
The easy paper craft techniques you'll use could be adapted
for lots of kindergarten activities.
If you want some inspiration for the sorts of dinosaurs you could use, have a look at our homeschooling science dinosaur activities.
You can also add in other easy kindergarten activities with dinosaurs, like marbling a homeschool dinosaur egg or keeping a real pet Triops, which once lived in the age of the dinosaurs.
Paper Crafts For Kids
The great thing about these easy homeschooling kindergarten
activities is that your kids don't have to be great artists - whatever
they produce they'll still enjoy making their creations move and pop-up.
Easy kids crafts are just that - easy! But I must say I hadn't realised just how effective it would be adding a few slots and paper fasteners to William and Catherine's homeschool pictures.
The excitement of actually watching your paper flames erupt out of the top of a homeschool volcano has to be seen to be believed.
Make a pterosaur fly:
Watching this homeschool pterosaur swoop is great fun for easy kindergarten activities using paper crafts.
Get your kids to draw a flying pterosaur on card and cut him out.
Cut a long narrow strip of quite thick unbendy cardboard. This will be the handle which your kids will move to make your homeschool pterosaur fly.
Attach your pterosaur to the cardboard handle using a paper fastener.
Cut a slot using another piece of card for your
homeschooling pterosaur to swoop along. You can make him fly straight
or, as we have done, make him do a loop by cutting a semi-circular slot.
Watch him fly!
Make a homeschooling volcano:
This homeschooling volcano is easy and fun for kindergarten activities.
Ask your kids to paint some vibrant flames on a piece of paper card and cut it out with a long tab at the bottom of the flames.
Stick the tab on a long narrow piece of cardboard which you're
going to use to push up inside the volcano to make your homeschool
