Decoupage just may be the perfect craft for kids. The materials are easy to find and affordable and best of all decoupage can be done by everyone. Even the youngest kids enjoy painting on decoupage glue (which is highly forgiving). So if you are looking for an afternoon of fun with your kids or a classroom activity you may want to try one of these decoupage craft ideas for kids-

Instructions for the project:
Have the child cut out a piece of a Christmas card or gift wrap to fit on the wood disk. Completely cover one side of the wood disc with decoupage solution. Lay the picture on the disc and brush with a final coat of solution. Let dry completely. Using the end of the brush or a stick, you have the child dab snow paint along the top. Let dry completely.
