Wood Scrap Kids Craft- Summer Boredom Buster

July 15th, 2015 | Made for Kids, woodworking

With the kiddos being home all summer long we’re on the hunt for fun stuff to do. I’d love to take them out every day, but Momma’s gotta do some work too. While I’m working the babes like to ‘help’, so I created this super duper easy wood scrap kids craft, that keeps their hands busy doing a wood project just like mom.

Fun Kids Craft- Make these wood scrap monster with wood offcuts, and a drill. Decorate with crayons, pipe cleaners, beads, and googlie eyes.

This wood scrap project is perfect indoors or out, and once the kids create their people or monsters they can play a game with them too, double whammy boredom buster!

For this project you will need:

  • Wood scraps (we used 1X3 off cuts)
  • Drill
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Crayons
  • Pom poms
  • Beads
  • Googlie eyes and glue dots

How to make scrap wood monsters- FUN kids crafts

To get this project started, you’ll just need to drill small holes along the edge of the wood for hair, arms and legs. Then let their imagination take it from there!

This wood scrap kids craft is perfect for all ages, and you can pick up all the decorations in a package at the dollar store. Foam stickers, glitter glue, yarn, and buttons, would be fun too.

Perfect craft for any age

I love when crafts don’t involve scissors or glue, so they can just go at it. This little craft is perfect for parties too, when the kid to adult hand ratio is a bit off.

Do these make you smile as much as they do me? I should have taken a photo of the back, because there are about 14 legs hiding behind there, and girl no. 2 has some seriously long locks! And those huge pom pom feet, ha ha ha!!

Makes my guy look so preppy, he is really lacking character compared to those dudes!
