Kids Crafts

Kids crafts are a lot of fun but due to the overwhelming options to choose from where do you even begin! Here you’ll find simple crafts that require only a few items, some you might already have on hand.

The first craft that I want to share with you is the glue sponge. You might’ve already seen it, but I think it’s the best idea ever. This will save you from the dreadful glue cleanup after craft time.

Glue sponge

You will need

Glue bottle
kitchen sponge
plastic container w/ lid

Directions

Pour half of the glue in the plastic container.

Place a kitchen sponge on the glue.

Add the remaining glue.

Cover with a lid and let it sit overnight. The sponge will soak up the glue.

Then just press anything on the sponge to grab the glue and voilà, no mess.

1 cup glue (about 8oz)
food coloring of your choice
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 teaspoon borax
2 bowls
spoon

Directions

In a bowl mix cold water, glue, and food coloring. Stir this mixture until it is thoroughly mixed together, set aside.

In a separate bowl mix 2 tablespoons of Borax with a 1/2 cup of water. Mix thoroughly until all of the Borax is dissolved.

Add glue mixture to borax mixture and mix, it should form a blob.

Store in sealed container or zip lock bag to prevent from drying.
