Boredom Busters for Kids at Home
Are your kids driving you crazy during this MCO period? Would you like them to settle down and get creative? We know it’s not been easy for you parents, maybe giving your kids a break from their busy online school schedule with a creative project might cheer everyone up!
At Yellow Easel, we’ve been thinking of ways to bust the boredom for your kids, to get them thinking outside the box and putting together their own colour combinations for some awesome artsy projects.
1. DIY Toilet Paper Roll Crafts
We figured that in terms of materials, everyone has got a few toilet paper rolls lying around the house right? Well why not transform them into something completely out of the ordinary? Such as making your own hippity-hop frog!
Follow these simple steps!
2. Hand-print Fun Painting
Why not add some colour to your wall with project number two, our hand-print peacock? Kids love painting their hands, and this time we actually encourage them to do so, with a gradient of blue, turquoise and gold for the peacock’s feathers.
3. Clay Modelling
Your kids will be happily focused and determined for project number three, clay modelling. Kids love experimenting with all the different possibilities of shapes and colours that clay sculpture offers. Make your own penguin, a crocodile, the letters that spell your name or maybe a cute kitten? It’s super easy to order soft clay online and you will enjoy the “look mummy!” while discovering all the interesting ideas your kids have while creating. They get to think in 3D and volume and plus of that, it’s a no screens involved activity!
4. Home Bonding Art Kit
Let’s say that instead of a kid’s only activity, you’d like to have more of a family activity? Why not, for project four, get your husband or a friend to tag along? For this we have planned out a home bonding family art kit that comes with free delivery. On our art & bonding website, it’s very simple to order an art package that will come along with an online tutorial, guiding you step by step in your desired canvas painting.
5. DIY Salt Work
We tested something out for project five, and we’re sure your kids will be wide-eyed and excited to try it out! For raised salt painting, all that is needed is some fine salt, cardboard, glue and watercolours. The possibilities are endless, they can draw anything they want lightly first with a pencil on the cardboard. Then carefully squirt out the glue along the lines of the pencil before sprinkling salt, lastly adding in the colourful dabs of watercolour.
