Kid Craft Sites

Who likes crafts? I know, you ALL raised your hands, right? How many of your children like doing crafts? Again, all of you said "Mine do!"

There are so many sites out there for crafts. You can find sites for anything you can imagine in the craft world.

I've got a few here for you today to help you on your quest to getting more out of the books your children read. Have fun!

DLTK’s Kids
Stuck inside? Need a simple craft? This is your place to be.
Use this to take your child’s favorite book beyond reading. Pick out a story. Now look through the many categories and pick a craft that fits your book. Read the book and then make the craft. Take it further and bake something that the characters in the book might eat. Enjoy!
Poke around here and you’ll find all kinds of neat things to do.

Another great site for kid crafts is Amazing Moms.
Pick an age group or a holiday and you’re off to the races with tons of great craft projects. Remember Potato Art? She’s got it. Have fun. Be a kid again and join your child in the fun of making crafts.

Squigly's Playhouse
Here’s a fun craft site! Want to make a no mess easy stained glass window? Or how about a bird feeder box? Or some jewelry? This site has so many things to do it will keep you and your little ones busy for hours.

Ever wanted to learn how to make those animals and hats out of balloons? Go to KidsStuff. Here you’ll be able to learn and have fun with your kids. Try to make balloon creations from your favorite picture book! Now there’s a challenge.

I have some crafts on my site too. Mine are all geared to go with our book, "Zooprise Party / Fiesta Zoorpresa."

I think that's a good start. Of course, you can always google what ever craft your child wants to learn and find a few hundred sites dedicated to it.

See you back here on Monday with another great book that goes beyond reading.

Thanks for these links. A few I already had saved in my favorites. I homeschool, so I'm online looking for craft projects a lot. I can spend hours doing this! There are a lot of great craft books out there too. :)
