Easy craft activities for the Singapore school holidays

Break out the art supplies and keep the kiddos busy during the June holidays with five easy peasy craft projects...

We’ve already nailed the art of turning toilet rolls into impressive crafty creations, and we’ve gathered up all the cardboard boxes in the house and transformed them into rockets and camper vans. Now that it’s the school holidays for international schools here in Singapore, we’re turning our minds to even more art and craft projects for easy and affordable fun. Parents! Break out the crafty supplies: we’ve got five easy peasy creative ideas the whole family can join in with…

1. Turning paper plates into dinosaurs sounds like a whole lot of roarsome fun! We’re loving these fun dino-plates by Good to Know – very apt right now what with blockbuster movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hitting the screens over the summer.


Kids will quit bugging you for hours while they’re busy with this fun activity

2. Upgrade your recyclable paper egg cartons into egg-stremely cool art and craft projects, including this
cute bug tutorial by JustKiddos.


Brighten up your jewellery box with a unique piece made by the kids

3. Break out the macaroni and whip up a colourful ‘roni necklace using
Mer Mag’s instructions with the kiddos: because no jewellery collection is complete without a dyed pasta option.


Kids will be racing to the craft box to make these dudes

4. Natural Beach Living
has us covered for all time movie-fave, Disney Cars, with this lovely art and craft activity. What little Lightning McQueen fan won’t love creating a racing car out of popsicle sticks?


Handmade stress balls make for a fun craft activity

5. We think we can all agree that raising kids can be a bit, well, stressful, so we’re loving this win / win craft
tutorial by Good to Know: get the kids to make you some play dough stress balls!
