When I first started making crafts with my kids, my boys were a little…reluctant. And it’s understandable. Some craft projects are clearly designed with girls in mind. Plus, it can be tough to get them thinking creatively, especially if they’re a little shy.
So I was excited to find some awesome art projects for boys that my kids would love! There are crafts here for making dinosaurs, pirates, and even ninjas! Boys of all ages are sure to love them! And even better – they’re all simple to make. You can even reuse some things you find around the house to craft them!
