Since school is out for the summer, it’s the best time to do some fun diy activities at home with the kids.

One of my favourate crafts to make with the kids is shadow boxes. I absolutely love how they turn out and they’re so easy and fun to make! They’re great for theme party decor or even for a child’s bedroom.

First thing is to decide on a theme: you can do fruit, animals, famous quotes, flowers etc. I bought the plain white shadow box frames from the dollar store. I then glued white paper to the back and cut colorful cardstock paper to create the animal and layered it on top, then I used button for eyes, black strings/fur for the hair and fabric for the tongue. Not only do kids love cutting them out they also learn a lot of things throughout the procedure. You really could do any design you want, in the end just hang it on the wall or stand it up on your side table. Have fun 🙂
