Need a few boredom busters for the kids or just a few creative ideas for family fun? Check out these super clever crayon arts and crafts for kids.
I love all things creative. And I don’t think I’ve ever met a pack of crayons or box of paint colors I didn’t like. That’s one of the reasons I’m always looking for arts and crafts for kids. It’s my excuse to get creative myself.
But more than that, it’s a fun way to get the kids away from those electronics that seem to be stuck to their fingers. Simple arts and crafts ideas help foster a love for art and promote using imagination to think outside the box a bit, exploring new ideas to create something extraordinary.
This week, I’m gathering just a few fun ideas using crayons. Who knew an ordinary box of crayons could be so wonderful? These super clever crayon crafts are easy to do, fun for the whole family, and require only crayons and a few other items to complete.
