Arts and Crafts for Kids

Welcome to The After School Party cohosted by Parent Teach PlayThe Educators’ Spin On It, and Little Wonder Days. Be sure to check out our After School Pinterest board for lots of great activities for kids ages 5+.

Welcome to the After School Link-Up!  Last week there were so many great arts and crafts for kids linked up that I just had to share them with you!  I think arts and crafts projects are a great way for kids to unwind after school and these projects allow for kids to explore their creative sides a lot more than most other school subjects.  Here are 12 posts featuring more than 220 activities for kids.  You should find plenty of artistic inspiration here!  Have fun!
