25 Easy Construction Paper Crafts for Kids of All Ages
Kids love crafts, right? But sometimes crafts get really involved or require a lot of supplies. Not so with these adorable construction paper crafts.
Paper crafts were always so much fun for me and my boys when they were little. Since I’m not super creative our crafts usually involved a lot of glue and a ton of glitter.
I’ve shared some of my favorite kids crafts ideas in my Rainy Day Activities for Kids article, but I know that there are much craftier mamas out there than I am.
So, I went digging around the internet for construction paper crafts. I found so many cute ideas, but I narrowed it down to my top 25 favorites. I tried to choose a few that work for each age group from preschoolers to older children. I’m sure you’ll find the perfect craft for your little ones here.
