Art Projects for Kids

The Crafty Classroom is a website is filled with crafts, activities and printables you can use in your classroom! Our crafts go alongside themes and literature resources and most of them come straight out of our personal homschool experiences! I firmly believe that children who are actively involved and invested in a project retain and recall information at a higher rate. Our thematic crafts and activities are designed to compliment your classroom curriculum and provide you with additional learning opportunities and discussions.  We provide project ideas that are easy to implement, with full photo instructions and  materials are specifically chosen based on what you might already have in your art supply closet.
