Free Kids Crafts and Activities

To find all the projects in the Free Kids Crafts and Science Activities Library, pick one of the categories on the right or scroll down the page to find the detailed lists of childrens craft projects and science activities.  There are craft projects for holidays, ideas for a child's birthday party, science experiments, childrens games, and lots of family fun.

You will find simple craft projects for young children, and ideas that will interest older kids.  Some activities just take 10 or 15 minutes, others could take hours or days depending on your child's interest.

Some of the craft projects can get a bit messy, but the kids love these ideas.  If you don't want to do all the clean-up, let the kids know before you start that they will be participating in the clean-up too.

Be sure to encourage your child's creativity.  Try not to have expectations of how the finished art work should look.  Often a child sees the world from a different point of view.  Crafting together gives you a chance to see through your child's eyes.

If you are working on a craft with a young child, try not to do identical craft projects.  If your child is drawing a nature scene, maybe you could draw an apple.  Children need time to develop their creative skills without being discouraged by comparisons to adult projects.

Note for Parents:

Every parent must use their own judgment in choosing which crafts and activities are safe for their own children. While Creative Kids at Home makes every effort to provide activity ideas that are safe and fun for children it is your responsibility to choose the activities that are safe in your own home.

Thanks for your creative website, it is really helpful for us mothers with little time for our kids. We can teach them this activity so they will not engage themselves to an all day tv viewing and it will made them be creative too. hope to see a lot more. More power to you!


I love your website. It's the best. Especially with arts and crafts for the kids. I have my own daycare and I get a lot of activities from your website. The kids absolutely love it. Thanks for your time.
