Teach Starter Craft Activities for Kids

Here at Teach Starter, we love art and craft! We understand how important visual art and craft activities are for kids, to help them develop things such as fine motor and creative expression.

We also understand that not every teacher is particularly art-savvy! When I was teaching and my class had to do something particularly crafty, I’d always default to putting up an image or video instead of demonstrating it myself – that’s the only way the students would get a good idea of what the outcome was supposed to be.

For that reason, we’ve tried our best to put together some instructional art and craft activity videos – for you and for your students!

All of our amazing art and craft activity videos can be found on our Craft Activities for Kids Playlist on YouTube!

Because we know you’re busy teachers, we’ve taken our top 5 craft activities for kids videos from our channel and put them right here for you to enjoy.
