Summer crafts set for kids

Hey everyone, its Bea here today sharing a special project with you as part of Create with youth week here on the Crate Paper blog. Since we are going on a longer holiday trip this year, we thought that it would be fun and useful to create a travel craft supplies holder. We always take craft supplies with us to our trips to keep us busy on the rainy days. A paper bag with a few pockets is a good way to keep the supplies organized, and an easy and enjoyable project to create together with my 10 years old daughter.

To start, we trimmed down chipboard paper to 5x19”, and scored by 5”, 7”, 13”, and 15”. Then, we folded along the lines and covered the front with patterned papers. To create the pockets, we trimmed patterned papers to 10.5” and folded three tiny flaps on both sides. We made 5 pockets in different heights. I attached the first pocket to the chipboard base using double sided tape and then align the next pocket directly onto the first. I repeated the process with all five pockets.

Kitti enjoyed so much to embellish the cover. She adhered fussy cut letters and alphabet stickers to create the title. She also added two tassels and created a cute 3D ornament to decorate her box.

Kitti filled the pockets with her go-to craft supplies. She added papers, adhesive, scissors, threads, stitching background, stickers, crayons, washi tapes.

One more TIP: When we travel with younger kids, the following project is my absolute favorite to make some fun and keep them busy. To create these cute pictures, you only need patterned paper, craft knife, scissors and adhesive. (You can find everything in the craft supplies holder we created above J ) First, draw a fruit to a piece of patterned paper, and cut out using a craft knife. Use it as a stencil, and copy the form to a white background paper.

Then ask the kids to cut tiny paper pieces, and to fill the fruit shape with them. Use a glue pen to keep the paper pieces in place. Align the negative shape to the top, and attach with glue. Super easy kids craft project and the kids will love to cut and glue the paper pieces!

I hope you enjoyed our kids craft projects today! Thank you for stopping by!
