What’s it about?
Crafting with kids can be overwhelming sometimes. It can be just. So. Messy. But it doesn’t have to be. Of course, it really depends on the child and what you’re making but the crafts in this book will help keep messes, splatters, spills, and scraps from getting in the way of having fun!
With tricks like twisting pipe cleaners into fun shapes to avoid glue and using brightly colored cups and patterned paper to avoid paint, the book can show you how keeping it simple doesn’t mean your craft projects have to be less fun. It also teaches you how to keep the mess to an absolute minimum when you need to use trickier supplies like paint, glue and glitter.
Inside you’ll find:
- 72 super fun, low mess crafts for kids of all ages. (Almost all of them are brand new and have never been seen on the blog!)
- Colourful photos of every single craft, including photos showing how the crafts in each chapter go together in a fun scene.
- Full colour, step by step photos and instructions for every craft (there’s over 800 photos in the book!)
- Tips and tricks to help keep the mess under control for each craft so you can spend less time stressing about the mess and more time having fun!
- A shopping list of supplies for each chapter so you know exactly what you’ll need.
- Tips on how to build a simple but amazing craft stash so you’ll always have the supplies needed to make awesome kids crafts.
Low-Mess Crafts for Kids Book
This book is all about making things that you can actually play with. There is no artwork to hang on the fridge here, just really awesome objects that you can make at home with simple materials.
The crafts in each chapter of the book stick to a theme and if you make all of them within a chapter, you can put them together in a fun little scene. Then you can play with the amazing things you just created. How cool is that?! There’s even a list of supplies for each entire chapter at the end of the book to make it easier to gather everything you’ll need.
Or you can simply pick and choose a craft and make it on its own. The best thing about crafting is that you get to decide! So go ahead and start creating things, one little project at a time!
LOW-MESS CRAFTS FOR KIDS is divided into nine chapters:
- My Secret Garden
- Under the Sea
- Summer at the Beach
- Animals at the Zoo
- Little Monsters Puppet Show
- On the Road
- Exploring Outer Space
- Let’s Go Camping
- Fairy Tale Dress Up
Kids will have a blast building adorable lions, hilarious puppets, boats that actually float in water, light up fairy houses, sparkling fireflies, and more. And with step-by-step pictures, kids of any age can create something they can be proud of.
All of the crafts use simple materials that you might even have around the house already. And if you don’t, you can easily get them at any craft store or dollar store. There’s no need to spend a fortune on craft supplies!
And if you don’t have something – Don’t sweat it! The instructions in the book aren’t meant to be rigid. If you don’t have exactly what’s shown, encourage the kiddos to be creative and put their own spin on things! Feel free to use the book as inspiration and create your own version of each craft.
Watch as little ones create their own enchanting worlds—whether they want to explore outer space with a Paper Plate Flying Saucer, race cars on a Poster Board Road Track or create a whimsical fairy city with Paper Roll Fairy Houses, each craft will spark your child’s imagination.
