Looking for ways to keep the kids busy and learning this season? Well, good news! PBS Parents’ Crafts for Kids website offers dozens of do-it-yourself creative projects.

From Cool Ice Towers (right) and cardboard Storybook Castles (below), to indoor gardens and outdoor toys, there’s something for every taste and skill level. And best of all, most of the projects call for items you probably have around the house.

Kids have a natural inclination to make things. For them, creativity is play—but purposeful play with an end goal in mind. And with all the attention lately on project-based learning, activities like crafting, especially with regard to younger kids, seem to take on new importance.

Visit Crafts for Kids today.
