As long as you have the right supplies, you can keep everyone entertained and encourage your young ones to use their art to transform your home.
1. Butterfly Window Garlands
Children love watching nature just outside the window, but it isn’t always possible to see something exciting. Bring cute creatures home by making butterfly window garlands. Cut out butterfly shapes for your kids to color or paint, then glue or tape them to long pieces of string.
You can hang the string from curtain rods so they dangle in front of the glass and give your kids something pretty to look at. Hang the strings in their rooms or the living room, so they always remember to be creative and have fun.

2. Simple Rag Wreath
If you have cloth around the house or can find a colorful bolt of fabric online, cut it into strips, and let your kids make simple rag wreaths. All you need is a wire wreath form to tie the fabric strips onto. Hang the finished crafts on doors, walls or even the kitchen cabinets to bring color and fun into your home decor.

3. Easy Hanging Birdfeeders
Teach your family about birds by inviting these feathered friends up to your windows or porch. If you have seeds, peanut butter and something to hang from a tree, you can make bird feeders with your kids without expensive supplies or a trip to the store. Hang bagels, water bottles with holes cut out or even a toilet paper roll covered in birdseed, so your kids can watch birds all day long. Birdfeeders are a great form of outdoor decor you can make in minutes that provides hours of entertainment.

4. Latch Hook Artwork
Kids who are a little older can make latch hook artwork for interior design decor. Find a kit that comes with pre-cut yarn canvas and instructions. Your children can use a latch hook tool to create a colorful picture that’s soft to the touch. Hang their masterpieces around the house with tacks, or put them in a shadow box to keep dust away from the yarn.

5. Custom Stepping Stones
Make your memories tangible by creating custom stepping stones for your yard. Your kids can use colorful stones, seashells and other embellishments to decorate their own stepping stones and sign them with their name or handprint. Once the cement dries, you can line your yard with stepping stones you can keep for years. They freeze your children’s handwriting, imaginative ideas and handprints so you can remember the good times long after your young ones grow up.

6. Popsicle Stick Pictures
You may not have extra picture frames lying around the house, but you don’t need them to put your children’s artwork on the walls. Find popsicle sticks and glue them together, and add pieces of paper inside the popsicle stick frame. Your kids can spend hours coloring or painting inside the frames or on the sticks, which can result in a new mini-art gallery for any empty wall space in your home.
