Welcome to the Crafting Along with the Kids thread!

I'm a stay-at-home-mom to Ava (5) and Brahmi (almost 4) and crafting helps us to get through the day.  Painting and drawing are some of our favourite mediums but now that the kids are getting a bit older, we're going to delve into other crafts.

I'd like to create a space for us as well as other Craftsters to document projects and share ideas.  Feel free to post an abundance of details and photos as you progress through your works.  Let's make this interactive and fun!

What a fun idea. I always mean to do things with my kids (I have an entire Pintrest board with ideas), but somehow I never get to it. Hopefully this craft along will motivate me to play with my kids.  My children are Nadia 5 (she's in kindergarten), Finn 4(at the end of the month), and Maes 18 months.

What a great idea!  My kids are 12 and 6.  We craft every weekend, doing a little bit of everything. 

Current projects are:

With 12 year old: 

Terribly Important SOB- personal swaps for both of us...as in we each have a personal swap to do with someone here, as well as a personal swap with each other for this theme.

Ongoing needlework lessons- which are needlework lessons for me, as well, because I haven't done needlework in years!

Scrapbooking, and other papercraft projects-

With the 6 year old:

Lego creations 101- or what kind of "spaceship" can you build with assorted Legos, mom???

Assorted writing and drawing projects because that is his weak point in school. 

Assorted papercrafts with a focus on mosaic- works on the cut and the paste skills.

A little early, but we created some Valentine's Day art for our family last Friday.  We used canvas, tissue paper, stickers, glue, feathers, foam hearts, glitter, and a SprayZa kit (which allows you to do airbrushing using markers).

We made some turtles yesterday morning!



Mine is the one on the left, Brahmi's is at the top, and Ava's is the one on the right.

We used paper plates, tissue paper, markers, glue, tie dye construction paper, scissors (Brahmi cut some of the toes off so I helped him cut the rest of the hands/feet), and googley eyes.

We are crafting again after a while of not, other than colouring.  It seemed like they were never both interested in painting at the same time or Brahmi would move on to something else after only 5 minutes.  We also spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer whereas it gets cold during the winter (-40C) and we mostly stay inside.  If we don't stay busy, the kids will run around the house screaming at the top of their lungs.  Or fight.  Or watch too many movies.  So crafting it is!

I can't wait to see your projects!

We started working on some "love bugs" this morning, more Valentine's day gifts, but my sister and nephew stopped by for a visit and so we didn't have time to finish.  Perhaps this weekend!

What kind of supplies do you stock up on, or like to have on hand for crafting with your kids? I think maybe if I had a stock pile of things specifically for them to use, I'd probably do more things with them.

I keep construction paper, toliet paper rolls, crayons, markers, glue sticks and stampers on hand in the "kids craft drawer".  I also keep googly eyes, pom-poms, ribbons, and scissors in the "use with permission" drawer.

If they are "super special good" they get access to "mommy's stuff"...paper punches, patterned paper, etc. 

This is the rule in my house for my 6 year old ~and~ my 12 year old. Otherwise, the 12 year old would run amok with the things I have plans for Tongue


I also got a kids craft bead set at Walmart for the elder child to use, and have a bucket of wooden beads for the younger.

I too have the basics of various papers, glue, glitters, beads, scissors, paints, canvas, pom pom, feathers, stickers, pipe cleaner...  I sew and crochet so there are many notions available for our projects too.  Most of the supplies we buy come from Dollarama but I do check the clearance section at Michaels when I'm there.  I found some tye dye felt priced at $0.49 per package, down from the original $5.00 so I bought 4 packages.  And there were some very large googley eyes that I picked up.

Otherwise, I've been building collections of "trash" for their stash as well as my own.  Sometimes it's just too costly to buy supplies, and the trash can really be turned into beautiful things.  Toilet paper rolls, patterned envelopes that the bills come in, the plastic mesh that covers clementine crates, coconut water can tabs, Christmas cards, various packaging laces/ribbons, etc...  During the summer I'd like to collect more nature-oriented stuff.

So what turned out to be Love Bugs that we started out a few days ago turned into Monsters and other things...  We used heart-shaped foam for the base, which was purchased at Dollarama.



Left:  Brahmi wanted to cut legs for his bug but ended up cutting numerous bits of construction paper.  We ended up turning them into the shell.  Googley eyes and pipe cleaner make up the rest.

Right:  Brahmi was having fun with the hole puncher!  Googley eyes, feathers, the punched parts of the foam, and a popsicle stick for the mouth.



Left:  I didn't have time to finish the one I started because I was helping the kids, and you can't tell from the photo but I have two layers of the heart-shaped foam with some space between them (I glued little blocks between the hearts).  I then stuck the pink foam wings in the space and was starting to decorate a bit.

Right:  Ava's last "thing."  She was losing interest by this point, other than using lots and lots of glue.  It hadn't finished drying by the time I took the photo.



Left:  Ava was copying what I was doing.  We used glue and glitter on the base, some black bits we found laying around the house, with googley eyes on top, feathers, and pipe cleaner

Right:  My first Love Bug but I didn't have time to finish it.  It looks a little big like a drag queen...  The eyelashes were added with marker and the legs are some glitter paper.



Left: A collaboration between Ava and I!  We covered the big blogs of glue with glitter, added a feather between the eyes, and Ava liked the look of a few popsicle sticks placed horizontally.  I added the teeth.

Right:  This was Brahmi's first experience with using the hole puncher.  Then I had the idea of making a target.  =)

It's been a while since we've crafted.  I wasn't feeling well last week so we mostly watched movies and then we were busy with gymnastics and a nearby indoor gym during the weekend.

But we decorated some plant pots this morning, using some terra cotta pots I picked up at a thrift shop recently, foam, and glue:



Ava's is to the left.  Surprisingly, she wasn't so interested in crafting today and quickly moved on to colouring.  Brahmi on the other hand, was busy cutting the foam sheets and I decorated the pot on the right.

I finally did something the other day. My 4 year old picked out a little ceramic piggy bank to paint as a birthday present, and I actually let him get it and paint it. However, there are no pictures because soon after it had dried he dropped it on the tile and it broke.

When I tried to console him by saying we'd buy another one, he insisted he could never paint another one again.

I work fulltime from home with my kiddo/baby.sweets4ever (turned 4 in late October).  I'm pregnant with our second, due in early May.

We do at least two projects a week, aside from coloring, finger painting, etc.  I find it gives me a reason to step away from the computer/work for my lunch hour and obviously he loves it!  If it wasn't for his projects, I'd probably just work through the entire day until evening.  His grandma also stops over once a week for a crafty playdate (love that).

Here's a project we did back in December Smiley http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418506.0


Here are some other projects we've done over the last year.

This is focused more on the stop motion video, but he LOVED painting outdoors, so I'll share it here, too. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=414695.0


Did you guys know Lowes and Home Depot both offer FREE kid workshops?  They are a blast and all supplies and gear are included. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410698.0


I made this as a surprise for him, but you could totally arm the little ones with markers, glue and construction paper to decorate their own http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410325.0  I made it last June and we JUST parted with it last week.  It was the toy that kept on giving!  Every kid who visited this house, rode in that thing. Cheesy


Love love love projects that "document" a little bit about the time they were created.  I interviewed him and we created this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410171.0


One of my personal favorites.  He still decorates and changes this one around. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410049.0

For Christmas my 4 kids (6, 4, 2, and 8 months at the time) each painted a canvas for their grandma and grandpa. The older children used washable poster paint and brushes, and the baby used Crayola non toxic finger paint. She preferred to paint herself. Luckily, I managed to keep her from eating it.

this is a great thread.  meleriffic, I hope you included that picture in the present for grandma and grandpa. 

My daughter will be 2 next month and I am always looking for craft ideas for her, she likes to move so doesn't stay interested for long but has recently started to love stickers (and loves to proudly bring a drawing home from day care saying "Me made that").

So what are your favourite toddler craft projects for a kid who still likes to put everything in her mouth?

When he was that age, I just went with it and crafted with edible things. Cheesy  Pudding finger painting (either on the table or on paper), cream cheese or peanut butter a tortilla and then use fruit to make faces on it, and cookie cutters with all sorts of things from fruit to cheese slices.
