Best Craft Ideas for Kids During Quarantine


Searching for craft ideas for kids, unlike bedtime, eating vegetables, and brushing their teeth, getting kids to craft has to be one of the easiest things to do at home. Kids are naturally teeming with creativity, and offering them an outlet for it can be rewarding to both the parents and the children. With ClassBento’s new live classes online, your little rascals can find new and exciting ways to keep crafting, or start crafting altogether! 

ClassBento’s online classes for kids brings a qualified instructor into your home via live stream to help the children get crafty when stuck indoors! Getting creative is a great way for kids to start expressing themselves, helping them nurture a healthy sense of self at a highly important age. So whether it’s discovering macrame, designing traditional Japanese carp streamers or even building your own terrarium, ClassBento’s new live classes online have the best craft ideas for kids next time your stuck indoors!


Eco-friendly indoor activities

Learning to craft doesn’t have to be expensive. Although certain artistic disciplines require expensive equipment such as sewing machines - as well as materials and resources that accompany it - there are so many ways to craft cheaply and effectively. Using your imagination with the tools at your disposal can be an exceptionally rewarding experience, and ClassBento’s live classes online can help you utilise this to great effect. 

With classes that show you and the kids how to craft homemade jewellery from upcycled materials you have around the house, you can create your own eco-friendly accessories with very little upfront costs! Learn how to design and craft your own bangles, earrings and accessories with upcycled everyday materials. 

Our live stream workshops provide you with an insight on how to continue growing your imagination and crafting abilities well after the class has finished. Not only is this one of the best environmentally-friendly craft ideas for kids, but it can keep them entertained for hours! Similar to this, Koinobori is a uniquely Japanese tradition that children of all ages will love. 

Koinobori - or carp streamers - are part of the traditional Japanese celebration of Children’s Day, held annually during May. The carp streamers are meant to represent resilience and strength, as well as promise in the new generation. Although common in Japan, Koinobori is still relatively new in Australia, and building one in our Koinobori workshop is one of the best indoor activities for kids on offer! 

Using a combination of colourful papers, fabrics and textiles - as well as toilet rolls - you and the munchkins can craft your own Koinobori to hang outside the house! They also make for beautiful indoor decorations, but if you put them somewhere with a light breeze, they’ll look like their swimming. Even our Koinobori workshop makes use of upcycled cardboard and paper, so after the class is over, you’ll have all the tools and knowledge you need to make them on your own.

Green things to do at home

Although gardening isn’t often viewed as a craft, we at ClassBento beg to differ. As far as craft ideas for kids go, some of our gardening and floristry workshops will help kids learn to craft, and learn to take care of plants! 

Our Make Your Own Fairy Garden workshop combines terrarium building with a more imaginative approach that’s perfect for creative kids! It’s not just limited to fairies, however. You’ll be able to create a garden that exists in whatever world you like, and with our hands-on live stream, you’ll get tips and tricks on how to craft miniature sculptures that are only limited by your own imagination!

If you’re looking to amuse slightly older kids, however, Kokedama could be the craft challenge their looking for. Kokedama is the Japanese art of moss ball hanging, where a bonsai plant is wrapped in moss and twine to create a literal plant ball! If you were chasing fun things to do with kids at home, kokedama making will keep everyone busy, and is one of the best indoor activities to get the family developing their own unique green space!

Indoor activities for the artsy kids

Looking for craft ideas for kids doesn’t always have to require them building something! Getting kids to discover painting is a fantastic way for children to begin to express themselves and find their own artistic individuality! Although one of the fun things to do with kids at home is finger painting (very young kids, at least), ClassBento has several live classes online that can show your older ones the basics of painting in whatever medium takes their fancy!

Whether it’s oil, acrylics, or watercolours, our live classes online will show the kids how to begin their journey to becoming a proper, beret-sporting, smock-wearing artiste! With our painting classes being amongst our most popular online workshops, you’ll have a plethora of options to choose from. Some of our classes offer you a guide to the painting essentials, while others offer you the guidance to paint a completed image during the class! Whether it’s painting your pets or painting each other, this is not just one of the best craft ideas for kids, but a fantastic way to get the family crafting together by painting each other!

If you’re looking for something that is a touch more practical, perhaps, our watercolour brush lettering workshops are one of the best live classes online for kids who have an interest in learning colourful calligraphy! You’ll combine the basics of watercolour paint theory whilst learning how to effectively use it when it comes to writing beautiful words and phrases. One of the benefits of this online workshop is that it’ so applicable to working on numerous other projects. 


Whatever you choose, you can ensure that your craft ideas for kids are going to be a hit with ClassBento’s new live classes online. With a growing number of live workshops everyday, you can easily find fun things to do at home with the kids this quarantine season!
