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.

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.

  • First, you’ll want to draw a simple hockey stick shape on your cardboard.
  • Once you have your hockey stick outline, cut out the shape.
  • Once you have your hockey stick cut out, paint the entire surface in the colour of your choice.
  • Let your paint dry before moving on to the next step. Once it’s dry, pick out a few fun rolls of washi tape.
  • Use the washi tape to make stripes on your hockey stick. Put them around the bottom or the top. Or, put your stripes anywhere you’d like.
  • Don’t have washi tape? Users can draw designs on masking tape and use it instead. Or, you can just decorate your hockey stick craft with stickers!

 

12 – CHEERLEADER POM POMS 

kidslovewhat.com

Kids will love jumping and dancing while having Pom Poms in their hands cheering their favourite teams or just playing in the backyard. It is easy and fun to make.

You will need:

  • x10+ Bright Tissue Paper Sheets
  • Pinking Shears
  • Bright Electrical Tape

Steps:

  • It doesn’t really matter what size tissue paper sheets you have but I wouldn’t go any smaller than A4 (12″ x 8″). Simply make a pile of all the colours you want to use in your pom poms. We used about 10 sheets.
  • We’re going to cut the strips for both pom poms at the same time so fold the tissue paper pile in half lengthways. Then using your pinking shears to make lovely zig-zag lines, cut thin strips all along the length of the paper leaving a couple of inches at the top uncut to use as your handle later.
  • Once you’ve cut thin strips all along your tissue paper, open up the two halves and cut along the fold to separate them.
  • Roll the uncut sections of tissue paper tightly to make the handles for your pom poms.
  • Lastly wrap the electrical tape tightly around the handle to make it secure and to hold all the colourful pom pom tassels in place.

 

Conclusion: 

One of the best methods of enlightening kids’ intellectuality and challenging their IQ are with, no doubt, games. Those games keep kids incomplete focus and interactivity with what they are doing. Among the challenges are Sports crafts which combines love for sports and learning. It also necessitates interaction with other kids when they play together or compete in reaching the better works of crafts. On the other hand, it brings parents and kids together in a more interacting atmosphere when helping them learn their play or make their favourite crafts.
