DIY Roundup: 10 Holiday Craft Supplies for Kids

Portland schools are officially out this week, and we have LOTS of crafts and activities available at collage to keep the little ones occupied and entertained! We thought we'd put together a list of ten of our favorite supplies and projects for kid crafting. A number of these projects could make for some great last minute gifts for adults, too!

On the left, peg people we created for our window display at collage on Alberta. We also love the DIY for this felt yeti (top right), which you'll find below in this blog post, plus info for making these paper snowflakes (bottom right) we made at collage!

All supplies are available at collage.
