Boredom Busters: Simple paper craft ideas for kids!
We’ve had a great summer so far. The weather has been cooler than normal, which is great for being outside, but everyday the temps are climbing and we’ll soon be back to our normal 100’s. When it’s that hot, we tend to stay inside. Even saving the swimming for the evening hours.
I’ve got a great Paper Craft idea to share today. It’s perfect for those days when you start hearing the dreaded, “I’m bored!”
I love that this craft requires very little supplies and will entertain them for a good amount of time- and with hardly any supervision. 🙂
All this craft requires is a few different colors of construction paper, a square punch, scissors and a glue stick!
Get started by pre-punching a few colored squares then set your kids loose on creating whatever they want!
It seems to help if I give them a suggestion on what to make to get started. Then once the creativity starts to flow, its amazing what they come up with!
My daughter’s creations tend to run towards animals and flowers, while my son’s toward all sorts of minecraft creatures…
Have fun paper crafting!
