If you’re always taking photos and are looking for new ways to display them, incorporating your latest shots into your child’s next arts and craft project is the perfect way to do just that.
Children love to be creative. Whether it’s finger painting on a Saturday morning or a new spaghetti portrait of the dog, arts and craft projects are a fantastic way to not only get them to have some fun by exerting those creative juices but it’s also great for keeping them busy for a while. Below are four photo craft projects your kids will love.
Frame your memories
There are so many fun frames that you can make with your children that can be used to display your favorite photos. If you’re heading to the seaside for your next holiday, make a point of bringing back a few shells that can be used to create a cute frame.
Create a jigsaw puzzle
Choose one of your favorite photos, enlarge it and print it. Stick the photo on some sturdy cardboard and coat it with an acrylic spray to protect it. Cut out some puzzle shapes and let your child put the photo back together again. Here is a great link on how to do this. https://modpodgerocksblog.com/make-a-photo-puzzle/
Craft a fridge magnet
Get your child to draw something from their imagination but leave a space for a photo in the picture. Laminate the drawing and attach magnetic sheets or tape to the back for an instant photo frame for your fridge.
Make a mobile
A mobile is a unique way to display your family tree. Checkout sites such as Pinterest for inspiration. There are tons of creative templates to use.
