Children have the gift of creativity and you have probably already noticed. Look in your memory, you will certainly find an example that proves it. How many times have you said, “But this child, how did he come alone with such an idea? However, sometimes it is said that instead of working and stimulating this creativity, the school annihilates it. This is why, contrary to what ambitious parents think, creative projects of primary manual activity are of paramount importance for the development of the child.
In reality, the strengths of child DIY go a long way. Not only does it appeal to the child’s creativity and curiosity, but it also helps the development of fine motor skills and better control of hand movements. And, it is also a good way to develop in the child the sense of autonomy and independence. Thus, the little one will learn to concentrate and will gain confidence.

How to make a pencil jar, decorated with washi tape – a super primary manual activity for back to school
For this DIY child project, you will need:
- tin can
- card stock
- washi tape
The realization step by step:
The first thing you need to do is to see how much card stock you will need. On it you will then apply your masking tape patterns. After completing this task, set the angle and direction to follow in the washi tape application . You can arrange them horizontally, vertically or diagonally … it’s up to you. Whatever the case, draw a line with a pencil and a ruler. The latter will serve as a reference.
Then, start packing the strips of washi tape next to each other. Be sure to allow the strips to stick out a little bit of the card stock. Then, stick the excess masking tape on the back of the card stock. Finally, using strong glue, have the decorated card stock tied around the can. You can use some pieces of tape to secure the ends as the glue dries. And finally, it’s optional but you can also decorate the top of your tin can.

A great mother’s day gift idea – cardboard photo frame and woolen threads
- scissors / cutter / cutting mat
- glue gun
Step by step realization:
The thing that you can start with is to put the photo on the piece of cardboard to bring back and trace its contours. In this first square thus formed, draw another, smaller to create the inner part of the frame. Then, using a cutter, cut out and remove the center part of the cardboard. It is behind this small window that we will put the picture. Then cut with scissors following the outer frame. Place the picture frame created on another piece of cardboard, trace over the contours and cut out (in case you want to create several photo frames).
Now start wrapping the wool around the four sides of the picture frames (we used different colored wool for each side of the square picture frame). Then you have two options – either you knit the two ends of wool well on each side, or you will stick them to the wool wound with a glue gun. Be careful, the angles are left bare, since the wool has difficulty on it.
Finally, you only have to paste the photo behind. Too much, no ?! One could think of making a whole collection of childhood photos to offer to mom. She will be charmed and surprised.
A windmill made of paper and pencil – an ultra-easy creative activity
Materials and tools needed:
- wooden pencil with eraser
- beaded pins
- a needle-nose pliers
- colorful card stock
How to carry out the project:
The first thing to do is to bend a pin at a 90 ° angle. Attention, because to achieve this task children will obviously need the help of an adult. Secondly, cut out a square of 10/10 cm in the paper. Then, split each of the angles in half and with scissors cut lines converging towards the center, but without going to the latter for as much. Stop cutting about 1-1.5 cm from the center.
Third, lay the paper on a flat surface and bring the left ends of each notch to the center. Hold with your fingers. Then take the pin to pass through the center, ensuring that it passes through all four points that have been brought to the center. Then, make the paper slip gently into the pin pushing until the beaded end. Finally, insert the pointed end of your pin into the eraser of the pencil, pressing firmly.
Spin and admire the magic of the windmill. That’s it, are you there?
