A number of African crafts can be created by kids, including a drum make of Styrofoam cups and a mask made out of paper plates and yarn. Find out how to decorate African arts and crafts for kids with help from an elementary school teacher in this free video on crafts for kids.
Hi this is Stacey and in this clip I will show you some simple African crafts for kids. The first idea is to make a drum using Styrofoam cups and tape. The materials are three Styrofoam cups and various colors of tape. Next you're going to break the bottoms out of two cups. Now you are going to tape the three cups together as shown. The last step is to take the opened end and then decorate it with various colors of tape. The next idea is to make an African mask that the kids will decorate. The materials are a hole punch, yarn, paper plate and markers. The first step is to cut out the eyes and the mouth and to make the hole punches on the sides for the yarn that will go in there later and then decorate it and then stick the yarn on and the child will be able to wear it.
