You don’t always want to work on crafts for kids.
And it seems like it never fails. As soon as you settle into your craft space, all cozy and ready to be creative and work on your own crafts, the kids pop up. Include them too.
Glue, paper, scissors.
They want it all. (even the teenagers have a tendency to do this!)
Crafts for Quality Family Time
With these craft ideas, you can use your Cricut to cut out supplies quickly. Set the kids up with their own projects. Schedule it so you have some time to do a few projects and crafts for the kids. Then, take the time to go do your own projects too.
Some of these will need supervision throughout the entire process. Others, you could make into a “rainy day” kit or when they come to you complaining about “how bored” they are. Just hand them one of these pre-made projects.
They can go find their own little space to be creative and if you are lucky you will get a few minutes of quiet time. Time to do your own thing!
Besides crafts, you can also have your Cricut draw out images to color. Heavier cardstock can be used for art projects (the kind that can be framed but won’t fit in your regular printer). The Cricut draws out an image for your kids to color or paint.

My aunt taught me how to embroider on my favorite nightgown when I was little. These paper sewing projects always remind me of learning to sew. These are great for a quiet project and for hand-eye coordination.
I love the idea of these paper crowns. I've wondered what to do with the metallic tagboard that I have in the drawer. This project would make a great gift to send to nieces and granddaughters. Especially for sleepovers or birthday parties!
Felt masks are a great addition to the dress-up box. My kids loved superhero masks. This tutorial is a great start to felt and fabric masks. Use it as a starting point and customize your masks to fit your little one's favorite dress-up characters.
