Engaging your children in arts and crafts at home doesn't have to be complicated. You don't need a million supplies or spend a ton of money. You will need some patience and a realistic attitude. Most crafts don't last a long time. Don't worry you aren't doing anything wrong, once you have been crafting a while you will figure out what your child likes to do the most and adjust. Wear washable clothes ( you and the kids) , make sure nothing close by could be ruined by flying paint or glitter and enjoy!

Here are 5 easy peasy crafts that you can do with 5 or fewer materials. Told you it can be easy!
