2022 National Craft Month – Creativity For Everyone
Who’s ready for National Craft Month?! Whether you’re a parent searching for eco-friendly art to make with household items, a teacher developing crafty lesson plans, or an artist looking to try a new creative technique—there’s a project for everyone here in the craftiest corner of the internet! Gather creative inspiration from these 5 fun prompts and start crafting!
1. Get in Touch with Art
Sensory crafts invite you to explore sight, sound, and touch! Start with a Rainbow Rice Sensory Craft that introduces four activities with new sounds, bright colors, and 3D embellishments, then hop over to the other side of the rainbow and shake things up with sparking Rainbow Glitter Sensory Bottles. Or, switch to creativity you can feel with Mixy Squish air-dry clay—mold and sculpt fun projects while exploring tactile play all day!
2. Craft A+ Projects
Crafting is more than handmade art—it opens the door for learning too! These lovely Valentine’s Day Melty Bead Shapes will melt your heart and teach you geometry along the way. If you’re a bookworm, hold a place in your heart for your favorite stories with handmade bookmarks and a literature lesson. Whatever your favorite school subject may be, spend a crafternoon in our Teacher’s Corner for some serious edu-tainment!
3. Go Green with Household Items
Look at a cupcake liner and what do you see? A flower bouquet, rocket ship, or maybe even a pinwheel! Recycled materials have the potential to be amazing craft projects while also keeping our planet clean. Find an eco-friendly craft idea that uses at-home materials like cardboard tubes, bottle caps, or tissue paper, and let your creativity do the rest!
4. Try Something New
Switch up your go-to technique with something totally new, like this adorable pointillism hedgehog! Or trade the brush for another tool and make resist art with tape, colorful string creations, even pour paint rock art. What are you waiting for? Explore our how-to techniques to find your new favorite skill!
5. Find Year-Round Inspiration
From April showers to Thanksgiving Mayflowers, summer beach stays and snowy holidays—we’ve got year-round projects that both craft novices and art experts enjoy! You may even prefer painting a Made By Me birdhouse for every season—bring in pastels for spring, go batty for Halloween, and decorate in gingerbread-style for winter. Craft inspiration will always find you—or you can always find it on our seasonal projects page!
