Top tips for crafting with kids

  • Always be sure to put down plenty of newspaper or plastic sheeting before you start. A cheap tarpaulin or table cloth can be a great option. It's surprising how far paint can go when kids are involved, so be sure to protect a wide area of floor. Keep kitchen roll or baby wipes close at hand for any emergency clear-ups.
  • Similarly, dress the kids in old clothes, or give them an apron to protect their regular outfit. An old adult T-shirt is an easy way to protect clothes if you don't have an apron to hand.
  • Always supervise toddlers and younger kids while they're crafting. Small items like googly eyes and pipe cleaners can easily find their way into a child's mouth, so keep a careful eye on them to reduce the risk of choking .
  • Be sure to praise your kids for their Easter creations. Even if it's not a work of art, you can always congratulate them for trying so hard!
