Party Pillow: Have sweet dreams snoozing on a custom keepsake. First, create stamps by pressing adhesive craft-foam shapes (handmade or store-bought) onto wood blocks. After applying a thin coat of paint with a foam brush to the stamps, use them to decorate prewashed pillowcases (slip some cardboard inside to prevent bleed-through).
Candy Crush: For some edible glamour, string necklaces using a mix of jewel-like soft candies. Click here for some good picks.
Pool Painting: This activity lets you turn the kiddie pool into an impromptu art lab. Kids can experiment by working with balls of different sizes, textures, and heft, from golf to playground.

Icy Art: This is one cool activity. As the ice melts, the paint drips away, leaving a fresh blank canvas.
Mini Masterworks: Find some images of famous paintings (check the local library for coffee-table art books), then invite kids to try making artwork in the style of their favorites, using acrylic paint and tiny canvases. Let the paintings dry, then display them on mini easels. (Canvases and easels are sold at craft stores.)
Mixed-media Monograms: For a letter-perfect collage project, brush a base color of acrylic paint onto a chipboard initial, then use tacky glue to attach sequins, tissue paper scraps, pom-poms, feathers, and more.
Goofy Grins: Smiles can be infectious, especially when you have a collection of silly mouth masks to share.
Canned Hams: Conquer clutter with a clan of charming monster containers guaranteed to make you laugh.
Feeling Koi: Some would say that every day is children's day, but in Japan, kids get an official Children's Day. On May 5, they fly wind socks that resemble carp, symbols of strength and bravery, to bring good fortune.
Build a Tabletop Campfire: Craft a fire fit for indoor fun with tissue paper, battery-operated tea lights, and sticks and stones collected from outside.
Pick a Trusty Pony: To transform plain old dining chairs into beloved steeds, have each child dream up her horse's name, then use card stock or paper to make a horseshoe nameplate.
Appoint a Sheriff: Dress up as ranch hands in denim duds and bandannas, then have kids make badges from gold card stock and markers (punched circles add a snazzy touch).
Chalk Pops: With our easy recipe, you can make sidewalk chalk in fun shapes using ice pop or silicone baking molds.
Curled-up Kitty: We coiled strips of newspaper to make a cat, but you can use the technique to form other animals and letters. Go wild!
Edelweiss: Celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music with this quick craft. Create the "blossom of snow" celebrated in song by the Captain and his crew by cutting flower shapes out of a white paper towel, then dotting yellow or gold marker in the center.
Breakfast Buffet: It's the most important craft of the day, so don't skip these eggs, bacon, and cinnamon buns.
