The truth is, with a lot of kids’ crafts, it can be pretty awful. Not terrible in a cute way. Horrible because it’s either too complicated, time consuming or expensive.
And horrible because what you see is not what you get when you and your own kids try.
Because finding the right balance is hard, we’ve rounded up some surprisingly easy craft ideas for kids that are also very, very cool.
