Quirky Crafts for Kids aged 8-12
As your kids get older, they may be looking for new ideas for crafts, so here are some ideas for crafts for tweens that they can lead by themselves.
While you will still need to be on hand for some aspects of these projects, tweens will love the independence to get creative.
#1. Winter Terrariums

These mini terrariums from Babble Dabble Do are a great winter activity. Using pebbles, salt, moss and plastic animals, these terrariums are suited to any age.
You could also equally create a summer version, with sand instead of salt.
#2. Craft Stick Crows
Popsicle stick crafts are always great as they don’t require much in the way of space or materials – if you see packs of sticks, it’s always worth picking some up for a craft session.
How cute are these little craft stick crows from Kids Activities Blog? Using supplies you most likely have in your craft box (or that you can easily find in stores), your child could make their own crows or try parrots, robins or distinctive pink flamingos.
