6 Affordable Arts and Crafts Ideas


Turn old pillowcases into smocks for the kids to use during messy arts and crafts. Just cut a hole on each side for the arms and a larger one up top for their head.

Use old flannel sheets or a shirt to make a flannel board. Cover a large piece of cardboard in the flannel. Cut shapes form felt, such as squares, circles, triangles, letters, numbers, etc.



Give dried up markers a second life by dipping the tip into water or vinegar for 5 to 10 seconds.

Use broken and dull crayons to create fun shaped crayons. Preheat the oven to 250°F. Remove paper and break crayons into small pieces to fill the cavities on a silicone mold. Place in the oven until crayons melt (about 20 minutes). Let cool at room temperature or in the fridge, pop out and use.
