Kids Crafts at Activity VillageAll our kids crafts are quick and easy, require minimal equipment and materials, and offer satisfyingly instant results - because we know that even crafty kids like to be able see the fruits of their labour in action within minutes rather than hours!

We have hundreds of crafts for children at Activity Village, many adaptable to suit different ages and abilities and working well with individual children or a large group. Don't worry that you need any great expertise or a huge amount of supplies and equipment. Crafting with children is all about having fun, experimenting, taking ideas that you see and adapting them to suit what you have available and what you think your children would enjoy most. It is always a good thing to be prepared!
