Use a pencil to poke a hole in the bottom of a six-inch plastic foam star. Insert a generous amount of glue into the hole and then insert a wood dowel. Cover the star with a generous amount of crafts glue and help your child sprinkle glitter onto the front and back of the star. Place the wand in a heavy glass jar to let the top dry.
Decorate by using peel-and-stick sparkly rhinestones and pretty jewels to stick on the star. To finish, cut gold ribbon into three 1-yard pieces, tying the pieces together with a knot at the center. Glue the knot to the bottom of the star and trim the ribbons to different lengths. Add peel-and-stick jewels to the ends of the ribbons, and you’ve just made a beautiful magic wand!
Use colored sand for kids art projects. Kids art projects made with colored sand open a whole new avenue of expression. Sand art is the creation of images, pictures, or designs in a bottle or even boxed glass frames made from different colors of sand. Sand art images, pictures, and designs are made using colored sand and a simple funnel. Children can make sand art pictures using colored sand in salt shakers to control the spread of the granules coming out of the bottle.
Kids Art Projects
To make this kids art project:
1. Use a craft knife to create a frame by cutting out the center of colored card stock or construction paper, leaving a 1-inch border.
2. Trim Contact paper so that it’s slightly smaller than the frame, then set the Contact paper face down and peel off the backing. Carefully lay the frame over the sticky surface and press it in place.
3. Pour the sand into the salt shakers, then put on the lids and cover some of the holes with tape. Give your child the bottles and let him or her pour the sand over the sticky surface. Dump off the extra sand as the space gets filled. When it is done, you can set a piece of clear Contact paper over the front to help preserve the design of this kids art project.

Young toddlers love finger painting. Finger painting provides a tactile pleasure for toddlers as young as a year old. The vibrant colors, squishy texture and creative possibilities make finger painting a popular art for kids. Expand the finger painting technique by dipping food or sponge pieces in the finger paint for distinct results in kids art projects. Dry pasta, sliced apple or potato create depth and can be used to stamp paint onto the paper.
Kids art projects introduce color recognition and the chance to begin expressing their vision of the world around them. Save money by making your own paint from a simple recipe of 2 cups flour and 2 cups water mixed together well. Divide the mixture into smaller bowls and add food coloring to get the desired color.

Collect plastic eggs that are found around Easter time or eggs that are used for the sale of nylons. Paint them with fleck-stone paint to give them the look of enchantment. Leave them to dry as you make the �goo� for the inside of the egg. You will need the following ingredients:
1. Elmer�s glue
2. 2 large bowls
3. food coloring
4. Borax laundry detergent
5. small dragon figure
Mix 2 cups of white Elmer�s glue with 1 � cups warm water in a large bowl. Add food coloring to make the desired color. In the other bowl mix 1 1/3 cups warm water with 3 tablespoons of Borax. Then, mix the contents of the two bowls together. This will make a gelatinous substance. Place in an airtight container or plastic bag until you are ready to fill the eggs.
Once the eggs have dried; place a small figure of a dragon inside the egg. Add the goo or flubber. Close the eggs and put them in a basket until your little guests arrive.
When the children arrive, give each of them an egg. Tell them that they are to keep the egg as warm as they can so the dragons can safely hatch. When you are serving the cake or are opening gifts, have the guests open their dragon eggs as well. The gooey substance will resemble what oozes from the egg when a dragon hatches. Girls might think it is gross, but rest assured the boys will love it!
