You can have fun while strengthening hand muscles with clothespins and matching patterns. For older kids you can add more patterns. You can use markers if you don’t have washi tapes.
Handmade gifts are very special, aren’t they? The best part I love is fostering creativity while crafting with the kids. They choose the colors, patterns for their own crafts. I should admit that I also enjoy crafting a lot, especially when the final product becomes a beautiful decoration in our home.

Small beads are very dangerous for under 2 year old kids, but these paper roll beads are not. If you want to prepare a fine motor activity for your 2 years old, this is great idea then. It is not only stringing but also sorting activity. Just cut the paper rolls into 3 pieces and use washi tapes to diversify them.
Chameleon is one of the cutest animal which is liked to be crafted.
Painting a pine cone is not as easy as it seems actually, but the result is perfect so it is really worth. Especially if the paint meets with the glitter then pine cones turn into a fabulous crafts. They are hanged on our outdoor wall and look awesome.
My kids love this caterpillar family a lot. Sometimes when it is difficult to talk about, crafts and plays help us a lot. So you can create a cute caterpillar family to talk about the feelings, values and some terms related with family.
Garlic press, potato masher, whisk, ice-cream scoop, wavy shape potato slicer. I am sure that you can find more options in your own kitchen. But I can say that “Garlic Press” was my favorite one. MB loved wavy shape slicer.
Some activities are suitable for both little and big kids. If you prepare this activity as line tracing, so it will be suitable for 2 year olds. If you add patterns to it, so your 6 years old probably will love this idea a lot. Briefly, it was a great sibling play for my kids.
At home I drew this branches randomly and we went for a walk in the forest to be able to find our aim branches. Of course we couldn’t find exactly the same ones but tried to find very similar ones at least. This is the result. My boys were so excited and they had great time in the nature.
Now we have a branch collection hanging on our door and open to the public.
Only takes 5 minutes to prepare these cute glasses. Kids are very curious about the new things they see around. If one day you kid sees someone who wear glasses and asks about it, you can prepare a quick one to help him/her empathize with that person. By this was you give her the chance to decorate his/her own glasses. They can also be used as a part of your special day costume.
