Children Tables For Crafts
Help I need craft ideas for school children?
I work in an after school care program and look after 5 -12 yr olds. We do not have many resources or alot of money to buy any. The children are getting bored so I want to give them some quick and easy craft to do. Now we also have some special needs children so glue and paint cant just be sitting on tables all the time,

How do die cutters work?
I am working on a project for which I need to cut out several hundred copies of (fairly simple) paper doll pattern for a children‘s craft table. I am wondering if I can save time for myself and my volunteers by getting some kind of cutting machine. I have never done any scrapbooking. I will be using some sort of cardstock or lightweight posterboard. If I buy a cutting machine, can I make my own die for the pattern? (I have access to a metal shop that might be able to do it.) I have looked at cutting machines online, but don’t quite understand how they all work. Also, many don’t list the maximum size of a sheet they can handle. Any thoughts would be most appreciated! Thanks!
Well there are manual and electronic/automatic die cutters machines. The manual die cutters have been around the longest, and the popular manufacturer is sizzix. The contraption can be a hand held, to a hefty one, and it has a presser to cut the shapes. But you have to purchase the die cut shapes separately. So how it works is that you get cardstock, preferably a small size like the size of a postcard or whatever size will fit in the presser. The die cut lays on top of the cardstock. And it is going to either cut it by pressing down, or a hand roller that will press it through, and the shape is cut!
As for the electronic cutters, those are really cool but really pricy. But personally if you can find a few people to split that cost with you it can be a really good investment if you make cards and scrapbook frequently. But purchasing a die c utter machine is very expensive because with a manual you have to purchase the die cuts, and with an electronic it’s a no brainer and it’s faster with a lot of features, but like the cricut machine, it comes with one cartridge, but you have to purchase quite a few accessories. YOur best bet is to ask around to someone you know who scrapbooks and ask if you can rent their machine. Or if you know of a place in your area that does scrapbooking classes or sells supplies some will actually make the cuts for you for a certain price. Good luck and have fun with the project!
Help, Christmas Cards/Crafts. :/?
I need some craft/card ideas for table time.
(Fyi, Table time is when me and my children, and husband, sit at the table, Do crafts, and talk about our day and just relax and have fun )
We send cards and stuff to my In-laws and I was wondering, what kinds of things we can do.
This year I was thinking of showing my oldest, how to sew.
Any ideas along the lines of sewing? :S
Thanks a bunch? You guys are a big help
To send to my in=-Laws*
Here is a great site for projects to do with the kids:
An easy sewing project would be stockings, like on the above site.
Christmas crafts for a school holiday party?
My school club is organizing a holiday party for kids ages 3 to 10. There will be over 60 kids at this party. Only four of us are working the crafts table. For supplies, we have or plan to buy:
-Colored construction paper
-Markers, colored pencils, crayons
-Glue sticks/elmer’s glue
Do you have any suggestions for creative crafts we could do at the party? Preferably ones that a child ages 5-6 could do by themselves without assistence. We already have paper plate wreaths and Chirstmas/Holiday cards, and are entertaining the possibility of doing a paper ornament. But we were hoping to find a more creative snowman oriented craft or something of the like. I’ve tried searching online, but I was hoping that Yahoo Answers may have some suggestions.
You could always make paper chains. Cut six inch strips about inch and a half wide glue or sticky tape end. Next strip put through first one before gluing. Linking together forms the chain. You don’t have to use construction paper any colored paper will do. Use paper plates to make angels. Cut in half and join together to make cone. Ball for head, wings cut out of paper glitter on cone for dress. Have fun.
