Craft Roundup: Impromptu Projects to do at Home

Summer storms got you and the kids stuck indoors? From DIY finger paint to cotton ball art, these four family experiments are tons of fun – totally on the fly.

Impromptu rainy days can keep little crafters inside – and, unfortunately, bored. But you don't need to be making trip after trip to the craft store to fulfill every craft project need. Try looking around your house for a few staples that you can put to use – and turn a rainy day a crafty day.

 

Kiwi Crate

Mer Mag's Merrliee is swooning over Kiwi Crate these days, a subscription-based craft delivery system just for kids. She loves how everything you'll need, right down to the scissors, comes in the box for crafty fun. Great idea.

 

How to Make Your Own Finger Paint with Kitchen Ingredients

Sometimes you get bitten by the crafting bug at the strangest time of day – when the stores are all closed! Check out Crafting a Green World and learn how you can make your own paint right in your own kitchen.

 

DIY Princess Aurora Glitter Shoes

Ballet flats are a staple during dress-up. What makes them even better? When they're covered in glitter! I mean, what else would a princess wear? Try this now-to by Little Pink Monster.

 

Cotton Ball Art

We tend to have a LOT of cotton balls on hand at our house. When craft supplies are running low, Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom shows you how to put them to good use by creating a rainbow of your own.
