Thanks to Crayola for sponsoring this post and giveaway.
It’s football season which means lots of fun family get-togethers. I love watching football but if you have kids who aren’t huge fans, I have a great idea to keep them busy! Make a fun craft bucket and give them the chance to let their imaginations run wild! This also makes a wonderful gift for the little crafty one in your life.
My children, my nephew and my niece had so much fun creating with the items in this bucket.
Want to learn how to make your own craft bucket? It’s easy! First, I headed to Target’s dollar section to find a bucket that would hold everything. While there I found some little blank books, a coloring book, rolls of craft paper, craft supplies, and containers. I then headed to the craft aisles and filled my cart with Crayola products. What a great selection of items they had!
Here’s a peak at what I put in the craft bucket:
As a previous pre-k teacher, I love open ended crafts so I made sure to include plenty of craft supplies. I even added a little frame for them to decorate which Lucas really liked gluing things on to. I put the stickers, googly eyes, pom-poms and pipe cleaners in containers with compartments so they were easy to use and keep organized.
To decorate the plain white bucket I cut up garland I found on clearance and taped it on the bucket. It was quick, easy and cheap to add a little color to the outside of the bucket!
Fun, right?! I loved seeing how creative the kids were. My nephew made up his own story book and was very proud of what he’d created. I have fond memories of creating my own books in grade school so when I saw these books I just had to get them. My favorite Crayola products are their crayons but the kids couldn’t get enough of these little character Pip Squeak markers.
One person will win a $25 gift card so they can pick out some colorful Crayola products
