Scratch art is a firm favourite craft activity for children - use the special scraper tool to etch designs by revealing the coloured layer below. The sets range in complexity so younger children can get creative as well as older ones. Choose from scratch art boards by Djeco, Avenir, Janod or Melissa and Doug.
Glitter Art and Sand Art work on the same principle as Painting By Numbers sets - simply peel off the numbered sections and add glitter or sand to create beautiful pictures that can be put on display.
Origami is another popular creative activity along with paper crafts -from origami monsters, dinosaurs and planes to polar animals, sweet treats, mermaids and birds - there is plenty to choose in the Djeco Origami range alone that will inspire any child to get busy with their fingers!
Decopatch is a fun creative activity where kids decoupage objects, furniture or ornaments - and is ideal for older children. The decopatch mini kits work well as a project for younger children from the age of 5 years old.
ReCycleMe is a brilliant eco-friendly craft range - each ReCycleMe box is a ‘one stop shop’ for parents, grandparents, or friends – allowing them to spend quality time making something with children! The kits are designed to teach children creative ways to reuse and repurpose common household items into fun and engaging craft projects.
Mosaics for kids are an absorbing creative activity that produce little mess and the end results look fantastic. Simply put the numbered stickers to the corresponding areas on the boards and the creations will appear! A fantastic activity that is good for younger children as well as older ones - the mosaic kits in the Djeco Do It Yourself collection include photo frames, animal masks, fairy wands, tiaras and pirate swords!
Foil art is where you peel off the label to reveal a sticky area, put the coloured foil on and using a tool rub over the foil to stick it to the area. Beautiful eye catching illustrations, especially the Djeco Foil Art Collection, result in works of art which deserve to be displayed.
