Letter of the Week

18 Easy Craft Ideas for 3-Year-Olds

You can do one letter per week in the right order to make sure your kids are learning something while playing as well!

Coloring and creating different designs with this watercolor pasta jeweler craft idea. Not only is this fun to make, but it’s also very fun to wear for you and your children. And don’t forget that your kids will be very happy to see you wearing something they’ve made for you.

Firework Stamps

When it comes to little kids, they have the perfect sized hands for this kind of crafting.

Their little hands are just perfect for this kind of artwork. Not only that, but your kids will love spending their time painting fireworks with their hands.

This shouldn’t limit them to just fireworks, but they can also paint some starburst, sunflowers, or even puffy clouds.

Moon Sand

If you’ve noticed that your kids are into playing and making things with their hands, then this is just the right idea for you. Sculpting, not only fun for your kids, but you’ll find yourself enjoying it as well!

Using flour and oil, you’ll be able to sculpt pretty much anything you’d like.

This activity will surely bring out the most creative side of your children.

They can spend quite some time mixing the dough, something they will definitely enjoy, and after that, it’s time to let their creative self-take over.

They can build small castles, monuments, and anything they can think of.

Egg Carton Crabs

Do you have empty egg cartons laying in the house? Good, you’ll make great use of them when you have nothing to do and a couple of toddlers to entertain.

After you cut the egg carton as you see in the picture above, it’s time to start gluing in some crab claws. Of course, this will require you to be present since hot glue will be used and children aren’t very safe around it.

Squirt Gun Painting

This activity isn’t your best option to do at home since it can leave a lot of mess where you don’t want any. So, it’s better if you wait up until the summer so you can do this outdoors instead of inside the house.

Grab a few blank sheets of paper and hang them around your backyard.

Fill a couple of squirt guns with liquid watercolor paint, and then let your kids have as much fun as they can possibly have. After everything is done, let the sheets get dry and there you have a couple of art pieces that you can hang around the house and show off every time you have guests over.

Magic Milk Paint

The ingredients you’ll need for this one are pretty simple and easy to get.

Whole milk, food coloring, and dish soap. Your kids will have a lot of fun mixing these colors together, and they will learn some new things about chemistry as well.

Liquid Sidewalk Chalk

If you know how to make liquid chalk then you’re good, if not, then it’s no problem. Grab some cornstarch, vinegar, water, baking soda, and food coloring. And then mix everything together.

Once that’s done, grab some bottles like the ones in the picture and fill them up with the solution you’ve got your hands on.

Your kid will absolutely love playing with them and will spend a lot of time squirting them and painting with them in the outdoors.

Once your kids are done playing, you’ll have some artworks on the streets that will last you a very long time.

Straw Bead Necklace 

If your kids need some beads to string onto yarns, then these recycled ones are the perfect solution since making is a lot of fun as well.

All they have to do is clip some bright straws into segments and they are done. The kids are definitely going to enjoy playing with these cheap beads.

Popsicle Stick Snowflakes

These popsicle stick snowflakes are going to be very much enjoyed by your kids, especially when you add glitter to the mix. After they are done, you can either hang them or use them as sun catchers, either way, they are a lot of fun to make and will take your kids’ free time away and make sure they enjoy every moment of it.

Fingerprint Flowers

This one is another painting activity, but it includes something a little personal: fingerprints.

After you draw the base of a plant, the leaves, and everything, it’s time for your kids to bring their fingerprints and start drawing the beautiful stems.

The end result as you can see in the picture is very beautiful and you might want to hold on to it after the fact.

DIY Binoculars

We all have a lot of empty toilet paper rolls in the house, and this is the time we made use of them.

With these homemade binoculars, you’re ought to enjoy your time with the kids outdoors bird sighting.

The binoculars are very easy to make when you follow the tutorial and will be quite a lot of fun to make as well!

Natural Sun Catchers

If your kids are fans of sun catchers, do this with them!

It’s your kids’ job to decorate these sun catchers after they do that, all you’ve got to do is assemble everything together using clear contact paper and some paper plates.

Once you start doing this, you’ll find out how fun this can be for you as an adult too.

You can attach some wildflowers, grass, or anything that your kids want to use for decoration to the sun catchers quite easily.

Paper Plate Animals

After you grab some paper plates for your kids, you can then invite them to start finger painting them. this could lead to them being very creative, especially if they decide to go for some animals. You can finish the paintings by offering the kids some construction that you can paint in whichever color that works for the drawing.

Sticker Name Activity

This activity is perfect if you want your kids to practice their motor skills, as well as their alphabet learning.

Grab a set of stickers, a big sheet of paper, and write a name on it with very large lines. Your kids should then start putting stickers over the letters until they are completely covered.

This activity is good for them since as they play, they will start memorizing how each letter is written, as well as how some names are spelled.

Pretend Play City with Paper Bags

This is one of the simplest ways you can play pretend with your kids.

You can use some paper bags, as well as flour bags if you have any lying around to create a small city that your kids can play with.

The more kids there are at the house the better, as they can all play together and get creative with one another.

Kid-Drawn Play Mat

All you need to do is provide your kids with a large play mat, a few crayons, and some company.

Then go ahead and watch them get creative by drawing a village, a city, or even just a farm, as long as they’re having fun and enjoying themselves!

Conclusion

These activities are very easy to prepare for and are extremely fun to do. Some of them can even be fun for the parents as well. We hope you’ve enjoyed our list and we wish you a lot of fun with your toddler.

Best Free Farmhouse Printables

Best Free Farmhouse Printables

Free farmhouse printables are a great way to decorate your home and express your creativity.

If you have lots of free space at your place, you can use these free farmhouse printables to add charm and glow to your bedroom, living room, kitchen, or even the bathroom. Farmhouse printables are easy to make, but they give an impressive look to your place.

If you feel like your skills are short on creating creative DIY projects, completing these wall printables will boost your confidence for creating more artistic and creative DIYs.

So to get you started to cosy up your home, follow the next steps which will apply to any free farmhouse printable that you are going to find online.

 

Step 1: Download your Farmhouse Printables

 

If you have a computer or even just a phone, you can get started by downloading the printables from various sources on the internet.

Pinterest is one of the best online sources to find these Farmhouse Printables. All you have to do is select the image that you want and then proceed with downloading it.

Then, open the image on your computer and print it from your home printer. If you do not have a home printer, you can copy the images into your USB key and take it to the closest printing lab or store to print them.

 

Step 2: Paper Choice

 

If you would like to have the best result with the printables, we recommend that you use a high-quality type of paper. There are two types of paper that you can choose: 

  • Matte Cardstock: This is a premium quality type of paper. It’s solid, thick and has a rustic texture to it. Professional DIY makers use it because it lasts longer than regular paper, and it looks better.
  • Glossy Photo Paper: This is another excellent option if you want to add a little bit of gloss and gleam to your photo. I personally don’t use this one as you can see the light reflection on it which is something I don’t like. Another reason why I don’t use it is that I am usually framing my farmhouse printables in a glass frame.

I’m going to be honest with you, I used the standard printing paper before, and I still do sometimes. It is cheap, and you can replace it at any time you want with a new farmhouse printable. Just keep in mind to treat it gently when framing it. Due to its lightweight quality, it is more likely to get wrinkled.

 

Step 3: Printing

 

Now that you chose the farmhouse printables and the type of paper that you are going to use, all you have to do is to print them.

Printing them using your home printer is going to be the first option you have.

The advantage is that you are not going to be spending very little on it, and you can always, at any time you want, print new ones and frame them so that you hang them later on your wall.

However, your choices will be limited. With your home printer, you can only print paper formats of A5, A4, or less.

Why limit yourself when printing labs are available to provide you with endless options of paper formats? Some really fabulous printables will only look good if printed on large sizes, which we’re going to see later on this article.

 

Step 4: Framing

 

Framing your farmhouse printable will enhance its aesthetic look and add cosiness to your space. There are many options that you can choose from, and you can get creative as much as you can.

Through this step, we are going to discover together the best and free farmhouse printable designs that you can make for your home.
