Tweens will love creating a wild, bright, and colorful sign for their doors. Whether they sign it with their name or a message (like “Keep Out,” HA!) it’s a fun and creative way to occupy the time. Read on to see how to make this DIY Door Sign for Kids!
DIY Door Sign for Kids
Here is what you need to make this cute craft:
- Wooden craft sticks
- Paint brush
- White paper
- Glitter (optional)
After gathering supplies, begin by painting the craft sticks. Use several coats of paint to create the brightest colors! If desired, sprinkle some of the craft sticks with glitter.
When the craft sticks are dry, kids will need to use scissors to cut the painted craft sticks into letters. Most craft sticks cut pretty easily with scissors for older kids, but younger kids will definitely need help with this step.
Next, kids can dip their paintbrush into their paints and splatter paint a white piece of paper. To do this, show kids how to gently tap their paintbrush over the paper, creating drips and splatters on their paper. Allow the paint splattered paper to dry completely before taping it to a sturdy piece of cardboard.
Last, invite children to glue down their wooden craft sticks to make their name or phrase. Allow the glued craft sticks to dry for several hours before hanging the sign on a door.
