3 Ingredient Art Crafts For Kids


Hello all! Kayla here. I’m back with another awesome post on easy art crafts for kids! I love to talk about simple ways to keep our kids busy and happy, because I believe we have one of the most important jobs in the world.

I also believe that entertaining little children for extended periods of time is one of the hardest jobs in the world, go figure. A little help with entertaining them really goes a long way, so I took some time to put together an infographic (I think that’s what they call it 🙂 ) with some of my favorite artsy crafts that inspire creativity in out little ones as well as provide a great example of the perfect sensory craft.

    Hey thank you for the awesome post!  I have two kids, one is two and the other is almost one.  I was glad to see that you had crafts for toddlers, and not just kids who are older.  I really like the edible paint idea.  This is something m little boy will love!  He wants to eat everything!

    I never realized how easy it was to make edible paint. Just some yoghurt and food coloring, interesting. I’d like to try it out. I’m sure the little ones are going to love it! I have never really used food coloring before. Is it safe to use it often? 

    I’d like to try out the puffy paint. That looks like so much fun! And messy, lol. The messier it gets, the better, isn’t it? 😉

      There are all types of food coloring out there. You can even find natural based food coloring!

      Yes for kids messy is more fun. Just not for us lol

    Thanks for this information, its very true that It can be hard to entertain little Children for a very long time. When I had my first daughter, I get very frustrated sometimes when I’ve tried my best to make her laugh and she ends up crying. Art craft is really good for kids, it works for a lot of things ranging from Psychological balance to physical and it also helps them get busy. Thanks for the 3 ingredients you’ve suggested they are really good.
