If you want a nice easy summer craft that you can do with very young children, this paper plate fish is a great one. Our 2 year old daughter had a fun time painting this one and helping us put it together. Slightly older kids can do the cutting and gluing as well.
Turn a some craft foam into a baby chick! Add some wings, feet and a beak using our basic template and you'll have a fun chick craft. We've included a template to make this craft easy to put together. It makes a great preschool farm animal craft for your kids.
We really liked this fish craft and it was perfect for summertime. The contact paper is the key to making this craft "toddler friendly" - no messy glue to contend with and it's easy for them to add the tissue paper all by themselves. The tissue paper makes the craft fun for small kids and the project has a great stained glass effect in the sunlight.
And on the farm there was a pig e-i-e-i-o! This fun pig craft is made from craft foam and a pipe cleaner and our daughter had a lot of fun putting her pig together. With a little prep work even young children can put this fun farm craft together.
The bald eagle is our national bird; a symbol of freedom and everything that 4th of July stands for. Our handprint eagle craft is a simple paper craft that uses your kids' handprints as wings, so it becomes a lasting keepsake.
