Outdoor-Inspired Crafts for Kids

Pet rock tic-tac-toe, a dreamcatcher and more outdoor-themed crafts for kids to do at home.

We’ve been subjected to a few weeks of up-and-down weather lately, but it looks like the forecast is in our favor. (Cross your fingers!) If your child is excited to go outside and have some fun, he’s not alone. To further inspire that love of having fun outside, take a look at this week’s roundup. We’ve found a few ideas all inspired by playing outside or sourcing your very own craft supplies right out your own back door.

DIY Kids’ Dream Catcher

Making a dream catcher is often associated with crafting outside at camp, but thanks to Jane Can, your child doesn’t have to wait for camp to create his own one-of-a-kind dream catcher this weekend.

Handprint Campfire Kid Craft

Gather around a fire with this idea from Glued to My Crafts. A painted hand can be transformed into a warm-looking DIY campfire.

How to Make a Rainstick

Rainsticks create very soothing sounds that your child is sure to enjoy. Take a look at Buggy and Buddy to find out how to make your own.

Pet Rock Tic-Tac-Toe

Put that pet rock collection to work! One Creative Mommy shows you how painted rocks can be turned into colorful game pieces in this outdoor-sourced project.
