We recently decorated foam butterflies and flowers, and decorated a wall with them to make an indoor garden. The kids loved it.
Also paper bag puppets, book marks to give to grandparents, etc. We do a fair bit of craft here!

Baking days are a winner here.
Yesterday we made damper (super easy!!) and sesame bars. But other things like scones, muffins, slices etc would be nice and easy.
You could make your own play dough too.
DD loves making little jungles, under the sea and tree houses with old shoe boxes. Colour them in and draw some trees or fish etc and stick them into the boxes.
If you have any balloons and rice you could make some juggling balls. Really simple to do.
Just fill a small freezer bag with half a cup or rice, twist it up, cut the top off the ballon and cover the bag it rice, then cut another balloon and cover the hole with another balloon. Then you can watch YouTube videos on how to juggle.
Make masks. Just draw the shape on a price of paper and let the kids decorate them and cut them out, either put some string around them or tape them to a paddle pop stick or similar.
If you have any left over buttons you can get them to decorate their letter for their room. Just get some good craft glue and paint their letter on a bit of cardboard and let them decorate it. You could later decorating a matching frame.
