5 Easy Arty Crafty Ideas for Homeschool

Chase does best with some hands on projects we can do together.  These would make great gifts for grandparents or to sell at craft fairs/yard sales.

  1. Rock Paper Feather: Quick Craft: Popsicle Stick Bookmarks: written by: Stacia Grafton

    He is an avid reader, so one thing we can never have too many of?  Bookmarks!  These can be collected in a cup on his nightstand and be ready for any book he reads.  The best part, polishing off some popsicles to get these sticks!
  2. Tic Tac Toe Rocks Activity or Gift: written by: Megan Bray

    Always collecting rocks and pebbles, this may be a fun activity for him to find use for them.  Perhaps even painting the entire rock.
  3. Decoupage Paint Stick Magnets: written by: Amy on Stow & Tell U

  4. Marshmallow Shooters: written by: Heidi on Happiness is Homemade

    This would just be super fun.  Maybe more of a spring/summer activity, but one to keep in mind for the future.  Edible ammo.  This would pair nicely with our plans to build a Nerf obstacle course in the backyard.
  5. Beautiful Wrapped Bottles: Found on, via Penelope and Pip (blog no longer active)

All images and project ideas belong to their respective copyright holders.  If any of these are accredited incorrectly, please contact me with the updated information.  These are all projects we haven't tried yet, but I've made this list to bookmark them for inspiration.  I'd love suggestions for similar projects, crafts that can be done with items on hand or very inexpensively.

I think I'll have Chase make a entry for one or more of these.  He loves the DIY and Life Hack type of things.  Hands on learning is the best kind 💚
