Needing some creative and interesting craft activity ideas for my son who is TOTALLY not into craft. I want him to have some exposure to craft though for fine motor skills and creativity.

  • Paints
    Take him shopping to buy the arts and crafts. What are his other interests? Try and incorporate them into his art project. And make it fun!
    Good luck

  • My son loves to cut pictures out of magazines and then glue them on to card. It will keep him occupied for ages and it’s a great fine motor skill.

  • Playdough would be enough to strengthen his fingers and is lots of fun.

  • Finger painting, play dough, cut out shapes, have a look on Pinterest heaps of good ideas.

  • What other things does he love? You could incorporate this into the craft activity. Ie decorating with stickers of favourite characters, or making things out of cardboard he likes – animals etc. you could try doing more craft outdoors out of natural materials – mud, sticks, leaves etc or use these natural materials to paint with.

  • A visit to Spotlight, Bunnings or thrift shops is often good for sourcing craft projects.

  • Bunnings and Spotlight have cut-outs made of cardboard and wood, boats and planes wood toys to build and bird boxes these are fun to decorate with paint and gluing broken tiles on for interest. We also made a Billycart which was awesome fun and took a whole weekend to make and paint.
