Personalize Your Pals! Inspiration for Individuality with kat & duke Crafts
At kat & duke, we believe in gettin’ down and dirty – creatively, that is. We truly believe that with a little imagination and a lot of fun, a cardboard box can be anything. Our kits are made to be fun and easy crafts for kids, but they are just the beginning of a wild adventure. So don’t settle for our version of a lion or a dragon – spruce it up and make it your own! That’s the best thing about kids crafts – you never know what you’ll end up with :).
We’ve rounded up a few ideas of how to transform a kat & duke wearable into a fun art project for kids. But don’t let our ideas stop you – Pinterest is full of kids crafts and a plethora of arts and crafts ideas, and we’re sure you creative folks have some ideas of your own. So get artsy, get crafty and start creatin’ – we can’t wait to see how you bring your kat & duke critter to life!
- Use Art Supplies!
Paint, crayons and markers are just a few of the basic art supplies that can help bring out the artists in your little ones. Have them add their own touch to the kat & duke characters simply by drawing! Maybe the monkey needs more hair or the dragon needs scales for skin. A few strokes of color and your kat & duke creature will have a whole new look!
- Add Themed Décor!
Use the kat & duke base ideas, and build on them. Maybe the lion needs whiskers, so add a few pipe cleaners. If the knight needs more armor, add tin foil to make the wearable “bulletproof” and shiny. And of course the dragon could always have a terrifying tail made from ribbon, a sock or a tie!
- Add a Funky Topper!
Is your critter the ruler of the animal kingdom? Add a crown or tiara. Want to add a mane to the lion or hair to the knight? Top off your box with some yarn, and maybe add some bows or a fun ponytail. Does your monkey love sports? When he’s topped off with a team hat, he’s the new #1 fan!
The outfit may make the man, but the accessories make the kat & duke character. Add sunglasses to give your unicorn an air of mystery, or give the elephant a glamorous makeover with rhinestone sticker earrings and a coat of red lipstick. If she’s going out, don’t forget her scarf and purse! As for the men, maybe the monkey needs a stick-on mustache or the lion needs a beard made from yarn … the possibilities are endless!
These are just a few of the many ways to personalize your kat & duke kids crafts, and we know there are many more – after all, kids arts and crafts projects are meant to be fun and unique!
