    Kids bored at home? Bring out the paint, glue and scissors because it’s craft time! Here are three simple, fun and cheap crafting projects from La Pomme Living that you and the kids can do right now. Yup, right now. Because, we’re guessing you already have all the materials you need lying around the house—a cereal box, shampoo bottles, and spoons.

    2. Shampoo bottle monsters

    How cute are these monsters? They’re made from empty shampoo and baby powder bottles, colorful magazine pages and glue. Cut out shapes from old magazines (the more colorful, the better) and turn your bottles into monsters by using the shapes as face features. This project is great for imaginative little kids who are just learning about their circles, squares and triangles. 

    3. Spoon and fork dolls

    This one’s a little more complicated as it needs fabric scraps. If you don’t have any, you can always use colorful napkins or crepe paper. You and the kids will use the fabric to “design clothes” for little plastic spoon and fork men and women. It’s a great project for preschool kids to stretch their creativity by creating mini-people from nothing but cutlery, a marker and fabric.
