Cool Simple Craft Ideas to Have On Hand for Little Guests

Happy New Year's Eve … eve! The countdown to 2015 is on and for many of us there are parties to attend and fun to be had. But what to do in between all that fun? Craft, of course! With a busy schedule before returning to school next week, it's a good idea to have some craft projects ready to go in case the dreaded "I'm bored … " statement is made. This week's roundup features activities that go from simple to more involved based on your family's schedule.

Altoid Tin Skating Rink

This is a small, sweet project that's been seeing some new life on Pinterest recently! Find the how-to from Small World Land. What kind of character would your child like to have as the featured ice skater?

Moon Dust Paint Recipe

This paint recipe has a bit of a New Year's Eve nod to it. Just imagine the starry sky scapes that can be created with it! Try the tutorial from Learn Play Imagine.

Finger-Paint Snow Globe

This snow-filled craft project by Crafty Morning works well on its own as a painting activity, but could be added to the front of a card for winter greetings.

Spoon Puppet Theater

I love using wooden spoons as puppets! And Crafting Connections shows you how. The face designs are limited only by your child's vision.
