If you are a Scout (Brownies, Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, anything like that) leader, you are probably always looking for Scout Crafts for Kids. Many of these could also be used at camps, day camps, and Vacation Bible School too.
They are easy to make, use simple and inexpensive materials, and best of all, they’re lots of fun. Check out the ideas we found below.
Scout Crafts for Kids
Clothespins are such a versatile product when it comes to making crafts from them. These trivets are cute and functional.
Craft sticks are another versatile material. You can make so many things from them including these cute bird feeders.
These felt bottle carriers will come in handy when going on a hike with your troop.
Set these up after dark to light up your campsite or use them indoors with battery tealights for your circle time.
These sun catchers are easy and inexpensive to make.
Get the kids to help design these adorable thank you notes that you can then send out to anyone who makes a donation or volunteers their time.
These little burlap bags can generally be found at the local dollar store. Grab some of those glass marbles or take the kids outside and have them find some small pebbles to use for this game.

Trading pins are BIG at jamborees, camps, and other events. Make your own!
Make these keychains (which can also be used on backpacks or hanging from hats) with the kids’ names or troop/pack names on them.
Grab some cork at the dollar store and make these pretty pendants.

Working on knot tying? Make these fun knot tying practice sticks!
