    Three Crafts Ideas for Kids this Spring

    Spring break means lots of beautiful flowers and animals coming out

    to embrace the sun. Parents also see this opportunity to help their

    kids bloom with new skills and discover talents. This includes letting

    them enjoy doing fun arts and crafts along with other kids. Here is a

    list of after school activities for kids in Dubai to give you an idea on

    what to let your kids create this spring.

    Grass Person

    This type of art allows children to combine art with gardening with

    grass people. Get a Styrofoam cup or a small pot where your kids can

    reate a fa e usi g arkers, iggl e es a d pai ts. The ups otto should be covered with small rocks or pebbles. Cover the top using

    potting soil to fill the cup. Push the grass seeds gently into the soil

    and cover the top with another layer of potting soil. Place it in a

    window sill to allow enough sunlight to enter. The face of the cup will

    eventually have hair once the grass grows.

    Butterfly Hand-printing

    This is one of the best after school activities

    ideas in Abu Dhabi that lets parents preserve

    the e ories of their hilds hildhood. This can be done with a piece of paper and drawing

    one small circle and a large oval. Cut the shapes

    out as the ill help reate the utterfl s head and body. Get a colored construction paper and

    assist your child in tracing three pairs of his or

    her hands. Cut these traces of hands out, as

    well.

    Grab another sheet of colored construction paper and start assembling the butterfly by gluing three

    ha d pri ts o ea h side of the utterfl s od . These ill ser e as the utterfl s i gs. The e t step is to glue the head and body. Use the coloring materials to decorate the butterfly and create a face.

    Photo Frame

    Let them surprise their grandparents with a nice picture frame. This is another after school program

    ideas in Abu Dhabi that creates memories. Paint eight sticks and create a square frame by gluing ends

    together. Place a cardboard on the back and use glue to secure it. Decorate the frame with colorful

    flowers by cutting colored felt papers. You can also use buttons and jewels to decorate the frame. Place

    the photo on top once done.
