Crafts for Preschoolers

Young children, between the ages of three and six, will be more interested in doing crafts than ever before. Before now, these children have been to young to understand the principles behind crafts, but as they reach school age and learn more skills, they will be better able to appreciate the nature of more detailed crafts. This makes this a perfect time to make crafts with your child that need more patience or contain more work.

Since these children are older, you will be able to let them use more materials, but you still need to practice safety around most craft materials.

• Children this age can use safety scissors to cut their own paper. Just be sure that you supervise them while they are cutting and that they are never allowed to move around while carrying the scissors.

• These children should now be mature enough to work with smaller objects such as beads in their decorating and crafting. Just be sure that the child does not put anything in his or her mouth, even if it is just to hold it for a second.

Some great craft ideas to make with your child include:

• Make a paper plate ladybug out of paper plates, construction paper and paint. To make a ladybug you will need to plain white paper plates. Using a glue stick or regular glue, glue these plates together on three sides, leaving an opening in the bottom for your child to insert his or her hand into. Next, use markers, paints or even material and beads to decorate the body of the ladybug. Ladybugs are usually red with black spots, but let your child make his bug in any colors that he wants. Then, use black pip cleaners to make the antenna. Glue these to the top of the plates after giving them a few twists. When the ladybugs are finished, you can hang them on the wall or insert your hands into then and put on a ladybug puppet show.

• Make a circus train and circus animals, then put on a circus. The rain cars can be made out of old cereal boxes, shoe boxes or other cardboard containers. To make "working wheels" attach cardboard circles to the cars with brads. Decorate each car with paint, makers and other festive materials. To link the cars together, thread a string through each end of each container. Make sure to leave enough string at the end for your child to pull the train. To make the animals, you can use old thread spool or small containers. To make the ears, legs and noses of your animals, use different colored pipe cleaners.

• Make a solar system. Use balloons for an easy activity and wads of newspaper for a harder one. If you use the balloons, use the right color of balloon for each planet and star. For example, use a yellow balloon to make the sun. To make the balloons look more like planets, use cotton balls that your child has colored in the planet color to add rays and rings. To use wads of paper, simply wad up enough sheets of paper to match the size of each planet. Then have your child paint the planets with finger paints. Add more rolled papers to make rays and rings. After your planets are done, you can hang then in your Childs room with string.
