Kids Craft Ideas for Half Term

With plans disrupted this half term and many of us spending yet more time at home, we have gathered together some kids craft ideas for the school holidays!

With Halloween parties and trick or treating off the cards, it doesn’t mean you can’t make some spooky Halloween decorations. This pre-printed Halloween Shrink Plastic sheet comes ready to colour in , you then just cut out, pop in your oven and watch them shrink down. They can be turn into a garland, table decorations, keyring or jewellery!

We also have our new Halloween Treat Box, with lots of beads (including some that glow in the dark!) There’s enough cord and elastic to turn them into lots of pieces of jewellery. There’s even a bonus hot chocolate sachet!

But if full on halloween isn’t your thing, then try our our beaded gecko video on YouTube. It uses plastic pony beads and cord to make a beaded lizard friend.

For older kids, our paracord knotting keyring kits are always a popular choice. They come in a wide range of colours and include beads to decorate the ends and make perfect bag pulls as well as keyrings.

If none of the kits or projects seem to fit, a bag of mixed beads and some elastic can make a whole range of necklaces, bracelets and even rings and keyrings. For younger children we would recommend our plastic beads and some fabric elastic . And for older kids, our Czech glass mixes and Stretch Magic elastic!

There are lots of crafty projects from around the web, here are some of our favourites.

This origami bat bookmark from Red Ted Art is the right mix of spooky and cute!

And if you having to whip up a halloween costume for a Zoom party, how about these beaded cat ears? For an easier, kid-friendly version, use pipe cleaners and larger hole plastic beads.
