10 Cute Art Crafts to Stay Busy and Have Fun

With the possibility of school still being out I think I need to do more activities to help keep my kids occupied. This super long summer vacation/home school experiment has bored them to tears. It could be because they absolutely refuse to do anything school related and it brings them close to tears to do so. They are begging for art projects. When they were little I used to take them a couple times a week to Michael's (it was an hours drive away) to do camp creativity. But camp creativity is not happening this summer. And we do not want to be indoors with others. I have compiled a list of fun art projects to do with my kids the rest of this summer. I will also be posting fun stem and art projects to do this next year because anything to keep them engaged and learning is a plus in my book. Make sure to come back and check those out.

Here are some of my favorite art crafts I found. I also compiled a list of 10 awesome stem activities.

I love this string art idea from Hello Creative Family. She mixes string art with air plants. I have never heard of air plants!

I do not know if my daughter is going to ever pierce her ears, but I could make these for me and she could make these for her in case she ever does. They are super cute. These DIY Pom Pom earrings are also from Hello Creative Family.

My kids are obsessed with painted rocks. Here are two amazing ideas for painting rocks. The first is a Rock Paint Pouring Guide from rock Painting Guide. Her whole blog is about painting rocks. I am a little obsessed. 
The other idea is from 365 Days of Crafts. She gives 11 tips to make rock painting easier. I love the grow and blow rock and the red flowers one.
Who does not love adult coloring? Me right here!!! The next project from Story Piece makes seed packets out of adult coloring pages. They could be colored too before making them into packets.

Here is a super cute fairy coloring page from Printable Crush. She has so many more cute coloring pages!

Jennie Masterson has a really cute friendship bracelet tutorial using macrame knots. This would be a great project for my daughter to do and to drop off to her friends or mail them to her friends.
If my daughter wants to try  making scrunchies, Carla Schauer Studio shows how to make them six ways, including some not sew options!
And what is better than repurposing thrift store items. Christina Fay Repurposed shows how to take an old mail sorter and turn it into something beautiful. My son is all about red right now, painting, and has changed the layout of his room 20 times this summer. I think I need to find him something to repurpose.
I hope these ideas help combat those long summer boring days. And look out for some fun stem and art projects to do with the kiddos coming up on my blog!
