What are some easy craft ideas you do with your kids? My son is very active in sports which is great, but I feel I need to encourage his creative side as well. Thanks moms

Collages are real easy and lots of fun! You can make a theme out of it. Glue all yellow items onto a plate, summer items onto a paper sun, . . . .Cut pictures from old magazines, pompoms, feathers, seashells . . . .The library has some great books with ideas too, check them out. They have a book on crafts made from empty paper towel rolls. Have fun! :)

my son likes to finger paint, you can also collect rocks and paint them up like bugs or glue different things onto paper (use leaves, pasta, color some rice, small rocks, buttons, glitter, or what ever you can find)

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Finger painting works, as will play doh. I made my son "cupcake crayons" for him to use and now he loves to color.
