DIY: Kids Craft Project


Summertime often means moms hearing the dreaded “Mom, I’m bored!” speech. Bust their boredom blues with an easy and personalized DIY craft project. All you need is to take a quick trip to your local arts and crafts supply store.

Supplies you’ll need:

* 8 x 10 canvas
* Craft paint in your choice of color + paintbrush
* 3/4″ grosgrain ribbon
* Pack of crayons (the larger packs have greater shade ranges of colors depending on what you want)
* Hot glue gun
* Exacto knife

Step 1: Select your choice of color and paint the canvas. I chose a grassy green.

Step 2: Let the paint dry and begin to line up your crayons to form the initial desired. Parents: Carefully use the Exacto knife to trim any crayons needed to create your letter.

Step 3: Using the hot glue gun, glue the crayons in their position. Let everything dry completely.

Step 4: Hot glue an 8 – 10 inch strip of ribbon to the back of the canvas for easy hanging.

Step 5: Enjoy your new artwork!
