Family Fun Crafts for Kids

Family Fun Crafts for Kids
Magazine

From the editors of Family Fun magazine, this special Crafts for Kids newsstand issue includes 180+ projects for children to enjoy. With ideas for year-round entertainment, it includes silly science projects, gifts to make, fun creations using recycled materials, and much more.

from the editors • All of our kids store loads of creative energy. We just need to let them unlock it!

10 TIPS FOR RAISING CREATIVE KIDS • Helping kids tap into their imaginations may just be the most important learning goal you can implement this year.

RAINY-DAY SUPPLY KIT • Stock up on a few special products now, and you’ll keep the kids off-screen and having fun no matter what the weather brings.

raid the RECYCLING BIN • Turn cardboard, paper, and empty food containers into free supplies for fun projects!

SILLY SCIENCE • Experiment, explore, play, and create to build your kids’ budding scientific minds.

play with your food • Turn simple ingredients into fun snack-tivities that will inspire creativity—and fill little bellies!

ROPE • Hit up the hardware store for rope and get making!

art class • Try a new technique, find inspiration from classic artists, and let the kids push the limits of their own artistic expression.

play pretend • With cardboard boxes, basic materials, and a few tricks to make it collapsible (easy storage!), this play castle banishes boredom for good.

READY TO WORK • And by “work” we mean have a whole lot of fun while using actual tools to make stuff! When kids have the opportunity to develop tool skills by your side, the payoff carries over into everything they do. Three cheers to hands-on learning!

sew fun • Created with the most basic stitches, these easy projects each offer a sweet way to craft together.

cool clothes • Transform inexpensive clothes and shoes into custom designs that show off the spirit (and attitude!) of your kids.

JEWELRY • Join the kids and make your own brooches, rings, and necklaces. No precious gems required!

16 IDEAS FOR ANY BIRTHDAY PARTY • Kids usually know exactly what kind of celebration they want—hello, pink princess unicorn party! But even if your child is down with a straight up Batman theme, there’s no reason you have to rely on the same old decorations everyone else uses. To get you inspired, we gathered bunches of easy birthday party ideas that can be customized for your child. The best part? They all start with affordable and basic supplies, such as balloons, streamers, party hats, and cupcakes. Squeals of joy guaranteed!

ultimate KIDS TABLE • Get everyone involved in the big holiday meal by setting up a table just for little guests. Our low-mess crafts and just-for-them nibbles will keep them happily engaged during the big meal and long after the turkey is gone!

all that GLITTERS • 8 kid-friendly ornaments to add a lot of sparkle to the tree or to give as gifts.

kid-made MERRY • Let the kids channel their inner elves this holiday season with 10 gifts they can make in a jiff!

gratitude gear • Encourage an excellent habit all year long by putting together an inspiring kit for crafting thank-you cards.

WREATHS • Dress up the front door, a mantel, or your kid’s room with a colorful wreath to celebrate the season.

PATTERN PLAY • Use the stitches and patterns we referenced throughout the magazine to help the kids get a jump start on their crafting projects.

BETTER DIY FORTS • Help your kids build a fantastic blanket fort with these easy tips.
