Arts and Crafts for Kids
Take an empty paper towel tube. Have your child decorate it anyway they desire. Once again, use craft supplies from around the house. When she has completed her work of art, roll it up and place it safely in the newly designed carrying case. Now it can be transported without worry of ruining the art work. This makes a great gift for a grandparent, aunt or uncle. They are getting a work of art all rolled up in its own gift wrap!
Another use for that paper towel tube is a rainmaker. You may also decorate the outside. Cover one end of the tube with waxed paper and secure it with a rubber band. Drop dried beans or split peas into the tube. Secure the other end as you did the first. Take toothpicks and punch them into the tube at different locations. When your child turns the tube upside down it will have a great rain sound.

When it comes to crafts for kids, don�t forget the power of reading. It is always nice to read a book to a child. But, how about having them create their own book? Begin by having your child draw a picture. Ask him or her to begin telling a story. Have him draw pictures for each part of the story. To make it more authentic have him draw the picture and run the picture through your printer using a word document for formatting the words for the picture. It is easy to do if you put it at the top or bottom of the page. You can also do these crafts for kids with multiple children.
Crafts for Kids
When the arts and crafts kids book is complete, you can use your imagination and paper found around the house to make a cover. There is no limit on ideas as to how you decide to finish this project. You can keep it simple and hole punch the sides and run yarn through the holes. Or, you can visit your local office supply store, they have the equipment to make a spiral notebook out of this treasure.
If you have a group of kids, the same children crafts and arts project can be done. Have each child draw a picture and tell a story. Group them together to make the story flow as one or have each story stand on its own. The kids will think it is pretty neat to have a �published� book.
