10 Easy Crafts for Kids

10 easy and simple, but oh so fun, crafts for kids preschool aged and up!Back in the day when I was a summer camp counselor, my favorite activity to plan in our schedule was craft time. I loved thinking up of theme crafts for my little preschoolers to make and take home to their families or display in our camp room.

One thing I learned is that most preschoolers do not have the attention span to do involved crafts. So we either broke the craft up into a few sessions throughout the day to finish it or I planned simple and easy crafts that can be made in 15-20 minutes.

I rounded up 10 easy, but oh so fun, craft projects that I have shared here on Typically Simple over the past year or so. Most are geared toward preschool to early elementary school aged children, but I bet even the older kids will love making them!
