A Sample Weekly Plan of Crafts for Kids

CraftsAll AgesLeave a Comment

Every weekend I try to make a plan of activities for the coming week to start on Monday.

I start with the gauging what my child is interested in (using the “My Child This Week” sheet of the free weekly planner). I fill one out for each of my kids and what they’re into at the moment. I use this as my guide to plan our activities accordingly.

With each of my kids’ interests, I brainstorm 7 activities to do that week. I jot them down on the simple ‘Activities To Do This Week’ planner.

Below is a sample week of fun crafts to do with young kids.

5 weekly plans of activities for each one year olds, two year olds, and preschoolers (plus a learning one too!)
