DIY Graduation Gifts
Want some low-cost and creative graduation gifts that are great for giving and creating with siblings? We’ve got the step-by-step for a couple of goodies and lots more inspiration for you through our Pinterest board!
Tissue Box Guitar
This craft will naturally lead to getting a musical groove on in your house! With simple materials and a quick assembly time, your littles will use one style of cognitive function to complete the guitar and a different brain function to make music.

Kids will enjoy the activity of crafting their instrument, and you can even squeeze in some related learning about the instruments themselves or general music appreciation tidbits.
Imagination Builder Pet Rock Project
Revving up your children’s imagination isn’t always an easy task. Sometimes we think we have to put in lots of our own energy to set up creative projects for our kids. Truth is, they can be encouraged to let their imagination flow with the simplest of activities.Making a pet rock can jumpstart creative thinking and keep it in motion as children create their pet and play with it.
Fidget Gadgets Your Active Child Can Make
Making quick little crafts that can entertain and engage your kids even after the activity is done is a double win. We’ve collected three different options but don’t feel like you have to choose just one! Your children can use these for entertainment purposes at any time, but they may be particularly helpful when your most active ones have a hard time being still.
Clay Snail Creations
We recently sat down with a little girl and asked her what fun craft she wanted to share with us. She made a snail out of clay and gave us step-by-step instructions on how she did it. We are happy to share it here for you and your family as a fun creative project, but if you’re so inclined, this is a great springboard activity to learn more about snails in nature.
