School is going to be here before you know it, but there are still some things that can be accomplished! Get your family ready to go back to school with some fun crafts. These are great for the whole family to make together, or just the kids and their friends. Enjoy your last few days of quality time with these crafts!
Creating custom magnets for lockers or hanging up artwork on the fridge with fun bottle cap magnets! Collect bottle caps or ask neighbors for any extras lying around. Let your child decorate them with paint, stickers, and rhinestones. Then, use a hot glue gun to attach a small magnet to the back. Voila! A fun craft that easy for kids of all ages to make, and it’s low-cost!
Your kids will love bringing lunch from home with a fun tie-dye lunch bag! Purchase plain white lunch bags at a craft store or online. Then, start tie-dyeing! Make sure you do it in the back yard so there’s no mess. And use a machine-washable dye so you can throw the lunch bags in the wash after a spill.
DY keychains are easy to make – and fun too! A custom keychain lets your child show personality with their backpack or house keys. Decorate an existing keychain, or make one yourself. Keychains can be made with fabric, a favorite charm, or a plastic keychain.
Turn a plain schoolbag from drab to fab with rhinestones! Hot fix rhinestones can be used to customize any backpack or messenger bag into a one-of-a-kind piece of art! Purchase hot fix crystals or flat back rhinestones in your child’s favorite color, then get sparkling! Rhinestones can be attached freehand, or with a pattern. Use a hotfix tool to attach the pre-glued rhinestones, and you’ll have a beautiful new bag in just a few hours!
Do your kids love washi tape? Use their favorite designs to spruce up some plain pencils! Pick up decorative washi tape at a craft store or online, then a box of plain pencils. Wrap the tape around the pencils for a fun new writing tool your kids will love to show off! The tape comes in dozens of different colors and designs so any child can find a pattern they like.
Once you’ve decorated your pencil, create a pencil topper using a pipe cleaner! Wrap the pipe cleaner around the pencil, then move it to the top to create a spiraling topper! Attach a foam sticker, or glue a paper shape to the top for added fun.
Get your kids ready for school with any of these fun DIY projects.
