Arts and crafts can get messy and chaotic, but they are an important part of any Kindergarten class. I’m sure you know that these kinds of activities bring many benefits to your Kinders.

In a nutshell, it is well worth spending time doing arts and crafts with your Kinders. The trouble is that it can be very time consuming trying to find crafts suitable for a larger group kids. It is all too easy to spend hours on Pinterest and still not find anything that is doesn’t take hours of prep. So we came up with an idea to make your life a whole lot easier.

The ultimate list of Kindergarten crafts listed by month

We thought it would be really helpful to provide a list of arts and crafts that will take you through the school year. In this list, you’ll find kid friendly crafts that your students will love. We have 4 crafts for each month, from January to December, so that is almost one craft per week. It should make planning a breeze.

Kindergarten Crafts


January brings winter weather, so we have some cute snowman crafts. It is also a good time to talk about Arctic animals, so we have a few crafts to go along with that theme.


In February we celebrate both Ground Hog and Valentine Day. Our crafts reflect those holidays.


March often brings breezy weather and rain. We also have St Patrick’s Day to brighten up the month.

Kindergarten CraftsEASTER

The date of Easter varies between March and April, so it got a separate mention!


April brings Earth Day and we have a bunch of projects that use recycled materials.


May brings spring flowers and Mother’s Day. We’ve also thrown in something for Cinco De Mayo.

Kindergarten CraftsJUNE/JULY

Most schools are done by the end of June, so we combined two months. We have some Father’s Day and End of Year crafts.


Here’s a miscellaneous collection of warm weather crafts for August


Fall is coming, so we have lots of fall leaves and apple crafts

Kindergarten CraftsOCTOBER


November brings Thanksgiving and often the first snow.
