Kansas Crafts for Kids

Sharing is caring!

When you think of the state of Kansas, what comes to mind? Personally, I think of wheat fields, acres of farmland, and barns. Which is fitting, because one of Kansas’ biggest industries is farming.

In fact, Kansas farms feature such varied products as cotton, soybeans, pigs, corn, wheat, and dairy! But there’s a lot more to Kansas than farms and that’s why these Kansas crafts for kids are so cool! Kids can use them to explore this Midwestern state from top to bottom!
