Along with being the national animal of Scotland, the unicorn is the topic of this week's craft round up. This magically, mysterious creature is a fan favorite of children across the world. So, to help keep your kids busy in the last few weeks of summer, we’re bringing you six different unicorn crafts for kids of all ages and interests.
These adorable little unicorn canvases from Made to be a Momma are a versatile craft project. You may have to plan ahead to purchase or order the supplies, but this is the PERFECT activity for any upcoming sleepovers your child might have planned. If you’re looking to make this project more practical, you can also glue magnets to the back of the mini canvases and use them to decorate the fridge, or your child’s school locker.
For the parents out there that don’t have a lot of time to run around purchasing supplies, the no-sew Magical Unicorn Pillow kit from Pinwheel Crafts is a great option. This project comes with all the supplies and instructions to walk your child through making their very own unicorn pillow. What’s more, without having to worry about things like sewing needles, or hot glue, this is a great project that many older children can complete on their own (which means more free time for you).
If your child has some bare patches of walls that need a colorful, fun decoration, this unicorn string art project is just right! Hello Wonderful provides great pictures and instructions on how to make these completely customizable wall art unicorns inspired by dreamcatchers. They even have an easy-to-follow video walkthrough via YouTube that we highly recommend for more visual learners.
For the bookworm in your house, these unicorn bookmarks are a simple and practical project. This guide from Craft Play Learn will walk you through the process of creating your very own origami unicorn bookmark. They even provide a free template to help get the pieces and parts cut out in the proper size and shape. If your child really loves the art of paper folding, consider checking out the Pinwheel Crafts Flower Origami kit as a companion project.
No household item is more fit for up-cycled crafts than discarded toilet paper rolls. So, naturally, we wanted to include a fun little paper tube unicorn craft. This is a wonderful option for parents with a tighter craft supply budget and a more eco-conscious mindset. This project from Meraki Mother requires supplies that you have likely already collected in your home, or office. Just break out your saved paper tubes, some colorful paper, yarn, and standard art supplies like markers, paints, or even crayons.
By now, you’ve likely already heard about the slime craze that has been captivating kids and teens for the last few years. If your child is looking for a new way to make slime, this Fluffy Unicorn Slime guide from Living Locurto is a great way to keep things interesting.
