Craft activities for kids


So, this simple activity required only a couple of ingredients as seen above. 


I’ve been eyeing our playdough containers for quite some time now.


I knew I could make a simple and easy craft with them that incorporated learning colors! 


I’ll share here how I put this simple diy crafts for kids together: 


  • Grab the top of your recycled play doh containers. 

  • Use a craft knife to make a hole right in the center of the top (adults only). 

  • Then, close the tops onto the play dough container and voila…

  • You’ve made a simple DIY craft for early learning!

  • Set out a plate full of the same colored pom poms so your LO can match them to its correct colored container.
