The traditional Canada Day fireworks on July 1st, 2020 at The Forks are a no-go this year due to COVID-19. However, as Jonas Gilbart reports, that doesn’t mean there won’t be a show. It will just be virtual. pic.twitter.com/i6tHfiStBJ

Carving is an activity that will involve a group of kids. It is a project that is easy to handle because it is pretty much everyone on their own. Having them create their own shapes, names, or messages is a lot of fun. With some creativity, you can find many ways to allow children to express themselves through carving and writing on the parts of the carving that they wish to have engraved.
Crafts like these will encourage children to think about the meaning behind things. And having them participate in the creative process will encourage them to look for patterns and use the colors and textures of various materials to express themselves creatively. It is fun for kids to see how their creation will look when it is finished.
Crafting Ideas for Kids below 7
There are different types of paintbrushes that are great for carving. Some of them come with hollow handles for holding a little bit of paint, which is handy. For more precise, longer-lasting results, it is a good idea to purchase thicker brushes. You may want to spend some time making up your own designs for the paintbrushes so that they can be customized for the design.
Ribbons are another fun activity for kids to try out. You can decorate the ribbons by using different colors. Using ribbons in the construction of the craft will help the kids learn about colors and patterns.
Here are some common colors that can be used to decorate the ribbons. Yellow is a good choice for plants and flowers. Green is a good choice for plants and leaves. Pink is a good choice for trees and flowers.
You can also create a stencil by using one of the different shapes of stencils available. Draw the design onto a piece of paper and cover the edges with tape. You can also tape them to the sides of larger pieces of cardboard.
All you need to do to complete the project is to cut the stencil out. Keep in mind that if you are working with younger kids, there may be an element of risk. Use great care when doing this project so that the stencil doesn’t get torn up during the cutting process. If the stencil gets torn, all of the work that you have done will not be properly represented.
Another fun and creative project for kids are taking a picture of themselves and paint it. Then take the pictures and put them together to make one big picture. It is a great way to get your child to put their creativity to the test. You can print the pictures out and use them as the labels for each part of the crafts for kids that they create.
All of the crafts for kids can be completed with simple supplies. You may want to buy a few different types of craft supplies to go along with the coloring and carving supplies that you already have. With these supplies, you can create numerous projects for kids to enjoy. Make sure that you have fun making the projects for kids and let them know that you are having a blast with them!
