Looking for some kids arts & crafts for that rainy day? Weather your child is into finger painting or using a paint brush, we have great children�s crafts to keep your child busy all day long.
Kids Arts and Crafts
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!
More kids arts & crafts ideas are to use the tube and make a rainmaker. Your child can start by decorating the outside of the tube. Cover one end of the tube with waxed paper and secure it with a rubber band. Get a bag of dried beans or split peas and drop them 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.

When doing kids crafts, be creative as possible and introduce nature to your child. Here is a craft that will get you out into nature and teach kids how to be creative as well.
Here are the items you will need for a fun nature craft.
1. old cereal box
2. white paper or a brown paper bag
3. crayons for decorating the covered box
4. items from your nature walk
Take the kids for a nature walk. Make sure to wear pants and sneakers for these children�s crafts. This nature walk is best during the fall or spring when there are many changes taking place. Collect items of interest such as pine cones or beautiful fall leaves.
Take the cereal box and cut a square in the front of the box creating a shadow box picture frame. Cover the box with white paper or the brown paper bag. Have your child decorate the new frame. When they are finished, have them glue the items in the box so that they can be seen in the �frame.� Place the heavier items at the bottom. The new fall picture can be hung in their room or put on a shelf for a home made decoration.
