3 Kids Crafts to Kick of National Craft Month

by Lynn Lilly, Feb 28 2024

Happy National Craft Month! We are kicking off one of my favorite months with 3 creative crafts for the kids on my weekly Crayola Facebook live broadcast. This week I am featuring 2 crafts from the Crayola CIY Book and 1 from crayola.com. 

You can find out where to purchase the new book here: https://crayo.la/CIYBook

The Crayola Create It Yourself book is packed with 52 year-round crafts organized by season! The tutorials are detailed and great for parents and kids to follow along! It will bring year round entertainment! 

Project 1: Paper Bag Star

Crayola Paper Bag Star Craft

In the book brown paper bags are used so I decided to switch it up with white bags and add a cut out design. 


  • Paper Bags (brown or white)
  • Crayola Markers, Crayons, Paint, Watercolor Pens, Metallic Markers, and/or Quick Dry Paint Sticks
  • Hole Punch
  • Ribbon or Yarn
  • Crayola Glue Stick
  • Scissor
