Paper Plate Scarecrow

Arty Crafty Kids - Craft - Craft Ideas for Kids - Paper Plate Scarecrow

When it comes to craft materials, I am a self confessed hoarder of anything that ‘could’ be reused later on.

And that ‘later on’ could be days, weeks or even years!

The kids love rummaging through my multiple boxes and I think it’s good for creativity. The hubby on the other-hand is very much in the ‘junk camp’ and my hoarding does drive him a little crazy.

So I love it when we get to use some of our junk and this paper plate scarecrow seemed like the perfect craft for reusing scrap materials.

It has a rag doll charm and from a kids craft perspective, it’s provided a tactile session that has encouraged the kids to use their imaginations and carefully consider how the various materials could be reused.

The kids were all over it and within this really easy kid craft we’ve used buttons, scrap paper and fabric, tissue paper and more!

Using a combination of tissue paper and yellow netting, we started by cutting them into thin ‘straw like’ strips and glued the pieces around the top rim of the paper plate.

Using pieces of fabric, paper and  a brown bag, we tore and cut pieces to then collage onto a oval shaped cardboard hat.

Once complete, the girls suggested that we add a flower! Using some circular pieces of felt from a previous project, the circles were simply layered and threaded onto a pipe cleaner.

Glue the hat on top of the ‘straw’ and fix the flower onto the hat using some glue, or a small piece of clear tape.

Your paper plate scarecrow should be coming together nicely!

Finish off by adding some facial features. We used scrap felt, buttons and scrap paper, along with a goofy scarecrow smile.

My kids loved making their scarecrows. With the tearing, sticking, cutting and threading elements, it’s proven itsef to be a great all-round work out for developing fine motor skills.

Fine Motor Circle Art

Fine Motor Circle Art is all about the process and less about the end product.

My six year old is ambidextrous and bizarrely, this tends to put her at an advantage when it comes to gross motor activities.

However, when it comes to scissor skills, writing and all things fine motor…that’s when the fun begins!

She still can’t decide which hand to use and switches between the two for everything.

This activity is a simple one to help develop the fine motor skills necessary for cutting with scissors.

It also doubles up as a creative work of circle art that my toddler used to colour sort and arrange in size order.

It turns out that our Fine Motor Circle Art activity is a good all-rounder!

MATERIALS: Fine Motor Circle Art 

This post contains affiliate links

Stock Paper/Card (US Link / UK Link )
Felt
PVA Glue
Scissors

Let’s Get Started! 

Arty Crafty Kids - Play - Scissor Skills - Fine Motor Circle Art

Present a selection of stock card, felt and any other suitable materials you have to hand – maybe they could try cutting bubble wrap or cellophane? and get cutting!

Your arty kid may want to draw their circles first and try to follow the lines, or free-hand it as Miss O did.

Cut lots of circles using different materials.


TIP: The use of different textures and materials will make this activity more challenging, as your arty kid will have to adapt their cutting technique with each – Great for Fine Motor Development

Arty Crafty Kids - Play - Scissor Skills - Fine Motor Circle Art

Keep cutting until there’s a good pile of circles!

Arty Crafty Kids - Play - Scissor Skills - Fine Motor Circle Art

Next, begin sticking the circles onto a piece of stock card.


Arty Crafty Kids - Play - Scissor Skills - Fine Motor Circle Art

Layer the circles until the card is full with circles!

As you can see, my toddler approached this task from the angle of colour sorting, whereas her sister went for pretty using contrasting colours.

I love that both of my children got something out of this activity, each focusing on different fine motor elements; Miss O cutting and Cakes, Sticking!

And of course, both children were left with a gorgeous piece of circle art.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this activity!

Handprint Apple Tree

Apple stamping is a classic Kid Craft.

I bet this is something you did as a child and have tried with your own children?

I know that I have fond memories of this activity and it’s a pleasure to pass it onto my own kids!

Inspired by a our Handprint Autumn Tree, we’ve created a Handprint Apple Tree!

Isn’t it sweet?

This is a really easy kid activity and if you have apples in the house, along with some paint you could probably do it right now!

Interestingly, my girls had opposing views on the title of this craft – Handprint Autumn Tree Vs Picking Apples from an Apple Tree.

I always love a good debate and most importantly, the girls had fun and enjoyed creating their own apple trees.

Use a pencil to draw around the outside of your child’s hand and arm.

Cut an apple in half.

Either dip the apple into the paint or use a paint brush to cover the surface.

Using the other half of the apple, add a green layer to the apple tree.

Finish off by filling in the hand print with brown paint!

TIP: to avoid wasting paint, simply mix any left over green and red paint to create a brownish colour. 

Once the handprint is filled in, add a few more stamps to the tree.

This Handprint Apple Tree is incredibly simple, making it perfect for toddlers and preschoolers – particularly within a group or classroom setting!

Cardboard Tube Apple Trees

Arty Crafty Kids - Craft - Craft Ideas for Kids - Cardboard Tube Apple Trees

When it comes to toddler crafts, there’s one golden rule to follow – Keep.It.Simple

And toddler craft doesn’t get easier than these charming little cardboard tube apple trees.

You wouldn’t believe how much play and activity was inspired by a few decorated tubes!

My toddler cakes spent the entire afternoon making and playing with her apple trees, well mostly playing!

Animals came out to play in her imaginary woodland. We talked about the types of animals to be found in the deep dark woods and of course, one can never talk about the deep dark woods without a reading of the Gruffalo!

It’s also a quick and easy way to talk about seasonal change and since we (and maybe you do too) tend to eat apples ALL the time, now is a great time to discuss the idea of harvest and the food chain within in the context of seasonal change.

So I hope your kiddos have fun. Here’s what you need to make your apple trees!

MATERIALS: Cardboard Tube Apple Trees

Cardboard Tube
Green Card
Red Tissue Paper
PVA Glue
Scissors

Let’s Make It!

Arty Crafty Kids - Craft - Craft Ideas for Kids - Cardboard Tube Apple Trees

While your toddler paints their cardboard tubes, cut out a basic bushy tree top from the green card.

Arty Crafty Kids - Craft - Craft Ideas for Kids - Cardboard Tube Apple Trees

Next, tear off little bits of tissue paper, scrunch them up and stick them onto the green card.

This is a great exercise for developing fine motor skills!

Arty Crafty Kids - Craft - Craft Ideas for Kids - Cardboard Tube Apple Trees>

Cut two opposite slits into the cardboard tube and slide the green card into the slits.

Ta-da, you now have an apple tree!

We cut our tubes in half to make them more stable and manageable for cakes!

Recycled Frog Craft for Kids

Arty Crafty Kids - Book-Club - Recycled Frog Craft for Kids

Our Recycled Frog Craft for Kids inspired by the super duper fun book Oi Frog.

Have you read it yet?

My kids LOVE Oi Frog!

Its simple story line is just plain silly and fun, with an emphasis on rhyme and word play.

Perfect for preschoolers!

It’s an incredibly engaging book from start to finish and my girls enjoyed predicting the rhyming words as they met each animal – I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you how great this is for language development!

If you’re on the look out for a new book for your preschooler, then I can guarantee this book will have them giggling throughout.

You can buy it from Amazon here: Oi Frog (US) / Oi Frog (UK) 

Now get your yogurt pots ready, let’s move onto the craft!

Paint the yogurt pot.

Dampen the brush with a small amount of water and then apply the paint. Luckily, acrylic paint tends to dry quickly and depending on the consistency, you should only need one coat. If a second is needed, that’s ok too!

Arty Crafty Kids - Craft - Book-Club - Recycled Frog Craft for Kids

Once the paint has dried, glue the black buttons onto the pom-pom’s and glue them to the top of the painted yogurt pot.

Next, cut out a few circles from the sheets of felt and stick them onto the pot.

Using green felt, cut out four feet shapes and stick them onto the pot.

Finish off with a nice red felt tongue!

Recycle Owl Craft Jar

Arty Crafty Kids - Craft - Craft Ideas for Kids - Owl Craft Jar

This little owl craft jar is all about making recycling fun.

We use jars for for our paintbrushes, sequins, buttons, pom-poms and  anything else that will fit in a jar!

They’re just so handy!

And super FUN  – let the kids give their craft jars names and create personalities to add another dimension to their crafting session.

This will not only help to make recycling fun, but also makes it easy for kids to identify the materials themselves and encourage independent creativity.

It also helps to keep the craft supplies in order, which is never a bad thing!

As you can see, there’s lots of reasons to make an Owl Craft Jar, shall we get started?

Simple crafts for kids are always the best and my girls  adored this craft.

It was amazing to see them immersed in their designs and my 6 year old cut the paper with such care and attention, leaving her really proud of her creation.

My 2 year old enjoyed the process of sticking and the ‘scales’ did end up everywhere.

Remember it’s all about the process not perfection!
