Crafts for Kids During School Break

Summer and school vacation are coming in no time once again. This only means that kids will be out of school and will stay most of the times in the house. Kids need to be kept busy all the time since they usually get bored easily when they are not doing something or they might end up bugging their parents all the time. Parents can enroll them on various summer activities that they like but there are parents who have no budget in sending them on summer classes. Arts and crafts at home will come to the picture.

Kids should focus their energy and time making arts and craft at home supervised with their parents or guardian. While kids are having fun, parents can do their work at home or their online chores. Browsing for vehicle export and other services can be done while the kids are doing their activities at home. Just  make sure that parents check on their kids on what they are doing to avoid accidents or misbehavin'.

Pinterest is loaded with craft for kids ideas and here's what I found: 21 flower crafts for kids

Drawing Skills and More

My 10-yr. old niece is still addicted to My Little Pony characters, or MLP as she calls them all the time. There's never an instance where she didn't make a drawing of various colors, designs and actions of MLP. She's even making a home video about it using her MLP toys around and she was inspired to do such because she's also been busy watching MLP videos on YOutube.

Drawing various cartoon characters enhances her drawing skills but I am not wondering anywhere where she got that skill  because her father and uncle and even cousins are into visual arts. They all love creating arts through various medium.

Since her birthday is coming once again on May, I will just give her art materials that she can use everytime she wants to draw, paint and make some crafts.
