Does anyone else’s kids beg to be out of school and then act like bored sloths within 9.75 hours of being on summer break? Or is it just mine? It’s not as if they have nothing to do. My kids have daily chores and help with house-cleaning, but “free time” usually leaves someone fighting or crying (or both!). This year, I created a little arts and crafts station with a caddy and tin cans. It has an assortment of markers and easy craft supplies. I have two kids in particular who love drawing and creating, and this craft station will keep them busy for hours!
Leaving craft supplies out for kids that are no-mess is important. Leave the glitter locked up, ya’ll! This Cupcake Liner Flower uses common craft supplies and Glue Dots instead of regular glue for a fun, yet no-mess, project. This is an easy kid’s craft, and each flower only takes about 10 minutes. But, if your kids are like mine, they may want to create a flower garden, making this a longer project. Have a small box or a vase handy for creating a flower bouquet.
- Glue Dots Craft Dots
- Green Craft Sticks (These are from CraftProjectIdeas.com. They offer jumbo craft sticks, which are perfect for this project.)
- Cupcake liners
For this project, I prefer markers over crayons. The markers are more vibrant on the cupcake liner than crayons. I use ultra-clean washable markers like these to protect clothes and crafting surfaces.
Flatten the cupcake liner.
Allow the kids to color and decorate their flower.
Apply Glue Dots Craft Dots to the top half of the craft stick.
Press the colored cupcake liner to the craft stick.
This quick kid’s craft is good for kids 3 and up.
