Amazing Crafts For Bored Kids

Tired of hearing “I’m bored!” with kids every time you turn around? If you’re looking for a couple of creative, kid friendly crafts that will keep them off of the television (and your back) for more than a few minutes, you might be interested in more than one of these crafts.

A little bit of creativity can go a long way when you’re out of ideas, so let us do a little bit of the process for you. Check out a couple of these.

Homemade Silly Putty – When your kids can’t seem to keep to stop touching whatever you’re working on, give them something else to keep their hands busy.

Nebula Jar – This remarkably cool jar is actually quite easy to make, and adds a lot of color to their room as a neat decoration.

Bubble Snakes – If you’re in possession of too many stranded single socks, you might consider using one or two for these pretty fun bubble snakes.

Button Rings – A stylish way to eat up a little bit of time is to make some simple and fun jewelry! It also makes for a great way to use up some leftover sewing buttons.

Bug Rocks – Having a pet rock as been around for just about forever, but has lost none of the charm and appeal.

Pool Noodle Racetrack – If you’re looking to make some awesome new tracks for your matchbox cars, splitting up a Pool Noodle for a downhill sprint can make for some pretty awesome courses.

Bored Jar – If you need freedom from the constant pestering for fun ideas, you can take down some great outdoor activities or some of the ideas listed here and put them into a dedicated “I’m Bored” Jar.

Homemade Paint – Many of these crafts (and so many more) call for paint, so what a better craft than making paint itself?

Pop Bottle Bowling – If you’re looking for some good indoor or driveway entertainment, nothing beats a colorful game of bowling.

Popped Bubble Art – A fun and original art project can be popping some balloons filled with paint onto paper for some stylish paintings.

Ring Toss Game – If Horseshoes doesn’t sound quite like your kid’s cup of tea, a bottle toss is a great way to go. You can even set up prizes and points.
