Encourage your kids to be as fully engaged as they like with their crafty creations – that means putting your worries about mess aside and embracing it instead.

Don’t worry about paint or clay splatters – Surf excel can help with all sorts of stain removal after enjoying arts and crafts for kids.

We have art and craft ideas for kids of all ages, so why not get the whole family involved? As long as you supervise young children around sharp objects like scissors, there’s a crafty project everyone can try, so encourage everyone to make something.

When you’re doing a project or activity with your little ones, of course you want to help and guide them as much as possible. When it comes to art projects for kids, though, it’s best to avoid acting on these impulses – let them explore their own ideas. Try asking them questions about what they’re working on instead.
