A very popular type of craft, especially if you have children, is to create something related to animals. No matter what their favorite animal or critter is, there will be a craft that you can do with them that they are sure to love.
For example, as Craft Whack explains, there are several butterfly-related if that is a favorite of your child’s. This goes for animals like elephants, dogs, cats, chickens, bears, giraffes, and everything else under the sun.

These crafts can feature everything from paper plates, to cardboard tubes, to wooden sticks and many other materials. There are no limits to the different ways you can create art featuring the favorite animal of your child.
Of course, be sure to get all of the necessary materials from a craft store before you sit down and begin crafting. This can include paint, markers, stickers, googly eyes, felt pads, cotton balls, and whatever else you may need.
Tie Dye Shirts
Few crafts are more fun and colorful than tie-dying shirts. It is a great way to turn a boring white shirt into something special. Not only that, but each tie-dyed shirt can look unique and can feature some beautiful designs, full of color. There are a few different ways to tie-dye a shirt that can have a major impact on things like the designs or patterns that are produced.
If you are really feeling adventurous, you can also tie-dye things like curtains, pants, blankets, and other things to decorate your home. Of course, if you are letting your children help, be sure they are supervised as tie-dye can be incredibly messy.
Upcycle Old Things
Your home is likely full of different accessories that have seen better days. This could be old photo frames, old mugs, placemats that are worn out, and many other examples. Instead of tossing them out, why not breathe new life into them?
You and your family could paint them, add some cool designs or even repurpose them into some unique art. Not only is this a fun way to spend time, but you are improving the look and/or functionality of the home. There are also several materials you never thought to use in a craft that can be a lot of fun to get creative with.

You could also buy these accessories used from garage sales or online and then fix them up with your children for fun. Just because something might not look the best now, doesn’t mean it cannot be improved. Also, the process can be a ton of fun and be a bonding experience for your family at the same time.
In conclusion, these crafts will be able to help make your indoors days more colorful and can be a great way to spend a lazy weekend.
