Arts And Craft Ideas For Young Children

Updated on April 8, 2008

Arts and crafts can be a very fun activity for you and your child to share. Here are a few craft ideas for children:

1. Macaroni Art- Simply take a package of elbow macaroni and empty its contents onto a flat surface or in a bowl. using a paper plate as the canvas, glue the macaroni pieces to the plate to create a picture. Simple pictures like houses or cats can make for great pictures to hang on the refrigerator.

2. Beaded Necklaces- These are very decorative and easy to make. Simply take some art beads and some string, and slide the beads onto the string one at a time. Make sure to tie a knot at the end first. When all the beads are on, tie the two ends together. You now have a very fashionable necklace.

3. Graham Cracker Gingerbread Houses- This is a "no bake" method for making gingerbread houses. Use white frosting to stick to gether the graham crackers, and to act as the snow. Once the house is complete, you can then proceed to decorate it with your favorite candies.
