craft ideas for a festival

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm running a stall at our local community festival it's for our Woodcraft Folk group (www.woodcraft.org.uk). As an organisation we take kids camping, do lots of crafts and cooperative games.

Ideally we would like a craft which will appeal to 6 - 10 year olds, is fairly cheep to make (although we will be charging a small fee to cover our costs we do not want to have a big outlay) and can be done with little equipment and probably sat on the floor. It also can't be something which is going to take ages to set.dry as people will need to be able to carry it around the festival.

So far I've thought of renting a badge maker or making rice filled shaker balloons (basicy put some rice in a balloon, inflate and add and elastic band handle)

So any ideas

I like the button/badge idea. if you get the button maker, maybe have the kids color on circles of paper the right size with colored pencils and add small leaves or wildflowers, maybe that they find themselves there if available.

Painting some sort of shaped wood, leather, or clay blanks might be fun, paint will take some time to dry but should be ok to touch in 10-20 minutes depending on the kind I'd think.

Or! Stringing chunky necklaces of wood or nut or clay beads. Natural, quick, portable, and fun. Available in bulk, your cost could probably be around $1 or so per necklace.
