If you have a love for art and craft, then it’s likely that your kids will too, and what better than encouraging your children to discover that same passion for colour, ideas and making. Here in this classroom we’ve put together some projects and simple activities that we hope you’ll enjoy working on with your children and grandchildren.
Activities to try...
First and foremost, it’s vital to keep your little ones safe. Please read the health and safety notes at the bottom of this page. You’ll find a mix of art and craft activities appearing soon on this page from colour mixing fun for painting rainbows, to monoprinting and recording everything you do in a visual diary. We’ve tried and tested everything posted here with our own little creative kid Amelie. At the time of writing she’s seven years old and loves nothing more than getting involved with everything we do. Maybe you’re homeschooling, or looking for art and craft activities to entertain your little ones at weekends and in the holidays. We hope you’ll find lots to do here. Let us know how you get on and what else you’d like to see.
