Kids crafts offer fun activities for children to do individually or as a family. Once finished, these crafts invoke pride in children when they see their work around the home. Crafts may provide holiday fun, such as making spider webs from yarn for Halloween or Valentine's Day mailboxes with Popsicle sticks. Easy kids crafts with Popsicle sticks and yarn spark creativity in children.


You can make a mailbox from Popsicle sticks to hold holiday cards for your child or to present as a gift with a card inside. Artists Helping Children offers instruction on a Valentine's letter box craft which involves a box, cardboard and a Popsicle stick with a red flag that moves up and down like a real letter box. From FreeKidsCrafts.com, a spider web wall hanging is a perfect yarn craft for Halloween.

Animals and Friends

Kids can use craft sticks to make butterfly bookmarks and kitty refrigerator magnets. MakingFriends.com shows how to make a puppy yarn bug with craft foam, styrofoam, tacky glue, cardboard and yarn. KinderArt makes Popsicle Stick Kids from yarn, ribbon, craft pens or markers and Popsicle sticks. Another idea is a craft stick cat magnet with four Popsicle sticks, chenille stem, paints, markers, oval wood shapes (available in craft stores as "woodsies") and magnetic strips.

Clothes & Accessories

With yarn, an old tube scarf and large eye blunt needle, you can create a fringed scarf with yarn, and FreeKidsCrafts.com offers steps to sewing the yarn scarf. L & B Yarn Co. provide a how-to on making a yarn headband using a wide headband. With yarn, a large vibrant flower and hot glue, each piece of yarn attaches to the headband until fully covered. Then, the flower glues to the top of the headband.

Coasters and More

<p>MakingFriends.com suggests coasters made from Popsicle sticks. A Popsicle pencil holder needs an empty toilet paper holder, 15 Popsicle sticks, tacky glue, paint or markers, rubber bands and things to decorate the pencil holder with, such as wood stars or glitter. Children can also make plastic and yarn picture frames using flexible, clear plastic or acetate, photos and yarn.
