At-Home Activities And Crafts For Kids

Kids reading inside a fort they built.

Are you looking for fun and creative ways to keep your kids entertained? With the help from our friends at Say Yes, we’ve compiled a list of our kids’ favorite activities sure to nurture their creative spirit.

Cardboard House

Wondering what to do with all those grocery delivery boxes that have been piling up over the past few months? Here’s an idea. Have your kids take the boxes and transform them into a playhouse for their dolls or action figures. Add rainbow-colored shingles and wallpaper for an extra touch of creativity.

Glow Stick Balloons

Glow stick balloons are perfect for sleepover parties! All you need is a pack or two of balloons, glow stick bracelets, and helium. Crack the glow sticks, place in a single balloon, and fill with helium.

Painted Wall Shelves

If your kids are into collecting things, this project will give you a creative way to display their collections. These painted wall shelves are also useful if you want to create a tiny home for their dolls. The color palette we used for this project includes Turner’s Yellow, Tabasco, Atrium White, Chinese Porcelain, and Kangaroo Paw.

A Living Room Fort

A rite of passage for any kid is building a living room fort on a rainy day. Don’t bog yourself down with the details, take whatever you have available in your home, and start building. Our friends at Say Yes experimented with different techniques and came up with one of the easiest ways we’ve found.

First Words Book

A first words book consists of a collection of your child’s favorite toys, family members, foods, pets, and places compiled into a photography book that becomes a resource to learn new words and phrases. Use scrabble pieces to spell out the items below the photographs. Wah-Lah! Your child’s very First Words Book.

Rainbow Foam

For this activity, we’re making rainbow foam. Beware, this is a messy one. You’ll need ½ cup of dish soap, ½ cup of water, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, and a few drops of food coloring for each color in the rainbow foam. Blend the ingredients for 30 seconds and then pour the contents onto a tray. Repeat the process, each time replacing the food coloring with a new color.
