It’s that time of year to start homeschool planning! I thought I’d do a roundup of 12 Waldorf homeschool craft ideas that would be awesome to do with your kids this school year! I have tutorials for all of them.
Wet Felted Playscape
These are so fun to make! For a child, I would suggest making something simple and small like a pond.
My tutorial shows how to do the two simplest window star designs there are! My 7-year-old is able to make one almost completely on his own. The loveliest way to brighten up a homeschool room!
Needle Felted Bean Bags
This one happens to be a free tutorial I did for Bella Luna! Your child could make a bean bag or two to use for circle time games!
Another fun way to bring color and life to your homeschool room that your child can make (or help make)! Check out this free tutorial on A Child’s Dream Blog!
I wouldn’t recommend this particular design for children to make, but check out the tutorial to learn the skills and then apply what you’ve learned to show your child how to make their own simple designs! Just playing with torn paper can create beautiful results!
I show you different methods as well as how to add needle felted designs!
Felting rocks is a very interesting sensory experience. They are lovely to play with and use as storytelling props.
I have different tutorials for dyeing playsilks with acid dye, plant dye, and food coloring. I would suggest a rainbow playsilk dyed with food coloring!
Birdie Finger Puppets
This has been a popular project for kids to make themselves!
Needle Felted Ornaments
When Christmas rolls around you can make ornaments for your tree or to give as gifts!
This one requires close supervision and the involvement of an adult! A simple, yet charming whittling project!
Getting Started with Beeswax Modeling
If you have struggled with feeling lost or overwhelmed about introducing beeswax modeling, I created a tutorial that I think you’ll find very helpful!
